Secure Store SQL exception - Event 7551 (SharePoint Server 2010)

 

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Foundation 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2010-03-08

Alert Name:   Secure Store SQL exception

Event ID:   7551

Summary:   The Secure Store service application connects to the credential database for reading or writing credentials. This event is logged when the service application fails to connect to the database. The SQL Server exceptions are not logged immediately; the system tries to connect the service application to the database three times before it logs the errors. This is because some unexpected, but temporary, system failures can also cause the SQL Server exceptions.

Symptoms:   The following event appears in the event log: Event ID: 7551 Description: The Secure Store service application %name% errored out because of a database exception.

Cause:   One or more of the following might be the cause:

  • The database server is down or not accessible because of network issues.
