- This alert condition indicates that the SQL server database does not have sufficient database permissions. This error typically occurs during deployment when sufficient privileges have not been granted in the SQL Server database to the service account specified in Windows SharePoint Services. Users may be unable to access the SharePoint site, or may encounter unexpected issues.
Critical Impact Events and Alerts
- This alert condition indicates that the location provided for the index does not exist, or the application does not have rights to create a folder for the index at the location. Crawling may not complete and users may be unable to view any search results.
- This alert condition indicates that the Security Token Service (STS) claims authentication cannot establish an endpoint. The claims provider is not configured properly. Users will be unable to log in to SharePoint as user logon requests will fail.
- This alert condition indicates that the Security Token service (STS) signing certificate Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products uses to authenticate users is missing. The STS signing certificate, self-signed STS signing certificate, or external certificate you are using is missing. Users will be unable to log on to SharePoint sites.
- This alert condition indicates that an existing backup/restore timer job has failed or was not fully completed. As a result, the SharePoint Timer Service or SharePoint Admin Service is not started. The Backup, Restore, or Granular Backup jobs may display warning messages and may not have completed successfully.
- This alert condition indicates that users cannot add or update content in SharePoint Server 2010 sites. The administrator has configured the site database to be in read-only mode. Users will be unable to add new content or make changes to the SharePoint site settings.
- This alert condition indicates that content in the database is not available and attempts to access the database generate errors. Possible causes: the SQL server login failed, the database has been deleted or renamed, or the database is currently unavailable because it is in an offline or loading state. Some or all of the SharePoint sites may be inaccessible until this SQL issue is fixed.
- This alert condition indicates that the service account to which SharePoint Foundation is set does not have sufficient permissions to the database to which it is trying to connect or the service account is not set up properly in SharePoint Foundation. Users will be unable to login to SharePoint web sites.
- This alert condition indicates that the SharePoint Health Analyzer detected an error. A product/patch installation or server upgrade is required. All required products must be installed on all servers in the farm, and all products should have the same patching and upgrade level across the farm. This issue can occur when SharePoint updates/patches are installed through Windows updates and the SharePoint configuration wizard is not run to update the SharePoint farm. An affected server will go into an unsupported state and issues may be observed.
- This alert condition indicates that an attempt to start or stop a service instance failed on a server in your farm because service instance provisioning failed. This failure can have several causes. Event details provides detailed information about this issue.
- This alert condition indicates that the database has reached its maximum size. Users cannot add or update any content in SharePoint Foundation and administrators cannot update any SharePoint Foundation settings.
- This alert condition indicates that the user name or password for the Microsoft SharePoint Foundation service account was invalid before the session or became invalid during the session. Users will be unable to log in to SharePoint web sites and may receive an error message.
- This alert condition indicates that the Security Token Service (STS) cannot sign user credentials. An exception error occurred in the claims provider while calling a method. Users will be unable to log on to SharePoint sites as log on attempts will fail. The People Picker may fail to search or resolve and return an error message.
- This alert condition indicates that SharePoint is unable to load the authentication provider. The role manager or membership provider specified for a particular web application may be incorrectly configured. User authentication will not function correctly, which will prevent users from accessing content.
- This alert condition indicates that a SharePoint backup failed as a result of insufficient permissions. When you back up a web application, you back up the content databases and settings for the web application, including all sites in the site collections, files in document libraries, files attached to lists, security and permission settings, and feature settings. The backup process creates files that contain all of this data. Similarly, when you back up a site collection, site, or list, the contents of those structures will be written to files or packages, and the restore or import process will use these files to recover the objects.
- This alert condition indicates that the SQL Server database has reached its size limit. When a SQL Server database is created, a value for the maximum database size is set. Each database has a separate database size setting. Note that a web application may be associated with one or many databases. Microsoft SharePoint uses Microsoft SQL Server databases to store most of the content for SharePoint web site and configuration settings, and uses a service account to communicate with the database on behalf of a user request.
- This alert condition indicates that Access Data Services failed to access the configuration database. This rule collects data when the back-end Access Data Services application server fails to access the configuration database and may be unable to read or save any settings.
