SPTraceV4 service is using a built in account

  • SPTraceV4 service is using a built in account Joshua

    So, after a clean install of SharePoint 2010 you sometimes get a warning that a service is using a built in account. This is found in yellow in the Monitoring panel in Central Administration.

    Upon further examinination, the service at fault is SPTraceV4 (though the actual error on the console (rather than the error detail) is SPTimerServiceV4 is failing).

    Sure enough, upon checking the windows services console, the account for SPTraceV4 is the built in local service account.

    So, is there a proper way to update this account to something other than local service OR to prohibit its provisioning with a local service account? Is this a bug?

  • I have a publishing SharePoint site set up that allows self-provisioning accounts. I'm using ADMembershipProvider, along with the LdapRoleProvider. When user's create an account, they are automatically added to a default AD group, which is already added to the built in Visitors SharePoint group. So once the user creates an account and logs in, he/she has access to the landing page. We have some web parts that we set up to display only to certain user's in AD groups. With this, we chose to use audiences. After entering the AD group in the audience for the web part, it does not display even

  • I am trying to pull data from the list.asmx web service from a console application. I am using clams based authentication, and whenever only integrated Windows Authentiation is checked everything works fine. Whenever I also check Enable Forms Based Authentication I start getting an Acccess is denied error when I try to connect to the service. I can login successfully using FBA so I don't think the problem is caused by the FBA configuration. Does anyone have any ideas to what might be causing this?

  • I'm implementing a custom BCS Model to get data from a backend system. As the backend uses it's own user management, I'm accessing it through a service account. All of this works well and allows me to pull data into SharePoint. However because it's channeled through the service account, everyone can access it, which is bad. Can anyone give me some tips which method to implement? The backend..., but ideally I want to cover security inside the BCS Model so that it applies to external lists as well. I want to avoid using Secure storage and mapping each individual user to the backend.

  • So I did create on an SPWeb 20 custom lists and then a tasks list. For each of those 20 lists I've created 20 site lookup columns. I then created 20 Content Types based on Task content type.
