Sharepoint Portal Server Administration

  Asked By: Landon    Date: Dec 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1232

I keep getting "Unable to open the Sharepoint Portal Server named
'<servername>'" when launching the Sharepoint Portal Server Administration.

My proxy setting is as follows:
Proxy Server = webproxy.merck.com:8080
Bypass List = *.merck.com;<local>

What am I missing?

Is your workspace running properly? (no stop sign in IIS)

Try this entry as bypass list:

Yes, my workspace is running properly. (No stop sign symbols in IIS)

'*merck.com;<local>' -- I tried this as bypass list.

Restarted the MS Search and WWW Publishing Services.

No luck.

Any other ideas?

I think you'll also have to restart the SPS service.
Or better, as recommended in SPS documentation, reboot the machine
after using the proxycfg tool.

Check the event logs see if there are any errors. Also try to stop the
Sharepoint Service and MS Exchange Information Store. Restart them Info
store first then the SPS Service.

No error that is related to SPS.

I took a screen shot of the event logs so maybe you could see if there is,
in fact, no error related to SPS.

I restarted MS Exchange Info Store and then SPS.

I still get the error "Unable to open  the sharepoint  Portal server  named

when i installed some tooles after the SPS installation.
