Event ID 5586 (Windows SharePoint Services health model)

SharePoint 2007

Applies To: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Warning

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 uses SQL Server databases to store most of the content for the Web site and configuration settings. For example, all pages in the site, files in document libraries, files attached to lists, and information in lists are stored in the content database, and security and permission settings along with other configuration settings are stored in the configuration database in SQL Server.

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 uses a service account to communicate with the database on behalf of a user request. This service account can be either a specific user name and password (domain name and password) or a predefined system account, such as Local System or Network Service. 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 might be associated with one or many databases.

Event Details

Product:

Windows SharePoint Services

ID:

Diagnose

An unhandled SQL Server exception occurred. Additional error information from SQL Server is included in the text of event 5586.

This error might be caused by one of the following conditions:

  • The account that Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 is using to access the database does not have sufficient permissions.

  • The wrong SQL Server collation is being used.

  • The wrong version of SQL Server is installed.

  • The database is set to Read-Only.

  • The database has run out of room.

  • The database has been corrupted.

To check if this account has correct permission in SQL Server

  1. Connect to the computer running SQL Server by using an account with administrator permissions.

  2. In SQL Server Management Studio, open the Security node, and then open the Logins node. You should see the account listed as a SQL Login.

  3. If the account is there, then open the database node, open the Security node under the database, and then open the Roles node.

  4. Open the Database Roles node and double-click the db_owner role to open its properties.

  5. In the Database Roles Properties dialog box, under Members of this role, you should see the database access account. If it is not there, add the account by using the procedure in the Grant correct permissions to the database access account section.

To verify and change the database collation

  1. Connect to the computer running SQL Server by using an account with db_owner permissions to the database.

  2. In SQL Server Management Studio, open the Databases node. You should look for the specific database that was indicated in event 4972 or 5586.

  3. In the database Properties, on the General page, the collation is listed in the Maintenance section.

  4. To change the collation, open the Options page.

  5. Select the correct collation from the Collation drop-down list. The collation should read "Latin1_General_CI_AS_KS_WS". If it is not, you can change the collation by using the procedure in the "Select the correct SQL Server collation" section.

To verify and change the SQL Server version

  1. Connect to the computer running SQL Server by using an account with db_owner permissions to the database.

  2. In SQL Server Management Studio, on the Help menu, click About.

  3. In the About Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio dialog box, under Component Name, look for Microsoft Database Access Components (MDAC). The version should be 2.8.1022.0 or later. SQL Server 2005 will have 2000.086.3959. This version is sufficient. If the version is not correct use the procedure in the "Update the MDAC Version section or the Install correct SQL Server version" section.

To verify and change the database collation

  1. Connect to the computer running SQL Server by using an account with db_owner permissions to the database.

  2. In SQL Server Management Studio, open the Databases node. You should look for the specific database that was indicated in event 4972 or 5586.

  3. In the database Properties, on the Options page, under State, the Database Read-Only option should be "False". If it is not set correctly, use the procedure in the "Change database to Read / Write" section.

To check if Autogrowth is enabled (Autogrowth will prevent the database from running out of room)

  1. In SQL Server Management Suite, open the server node, right-click the database, and then click Properties. The database name is provided in the event message.

  2. On the Properties dialog box, on the left navigation pane, click Files.

  3. In the Database files box, in the Autogrowth column, the text should include "unrestricted growth". If it does not, you enable unrestricted database growth by using the procedure in the "Increase the size of the SQL Server database" section.

If none of these is the problem, then the database might be corrupted. If this is the case, then restore the database using the procedure in the Restore database from backup section.
