Solution: Clear The Configuration Cache

To clear the config cache on the farm, follow these steps:

1. Stop the OWSTIMER service on ALL of the MOSS servers in the farm.

2. On the Index server, navigate to:

  • Server 2003 location:
    Drive:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config\GUID and delete all the XML files from the directory.
  • Server 2008 location:
    Drive:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config\GUID and delete all the XML files from the directory.

3. Delete all the XML file in the directory. NOTE: ONLY THE XML FILES, NOT THE .INI FILE.

4. Open the cache.ini with Notepad and reset the number to 1. Then, save and close the file.

5. Start the OWSTIMER service on the Index server and wait for XML files to begin to reappear in the directory.

6. After you see XML files appearing on the Index server, repeat steps 2, 3 & 4 on each query server, waiting for XML files to appear before moving to subsequent servers.

7. After all of the query servers have all been cleared and new .xml files have been generated, proceed to the WFE and Application servers in the farm, following steps 2, 3, 4 and 5 for each remaining server.

SharePoint 2016 Hosting Spain – HostForLIFE.eu :: How To Solve SharePoint 2016 Error Installation

In this post we will discuss how to resolve “Configuration Failed Error” while installing SharePoint 2016. This error usually comes when you run your SharePoint product configuration wizard and after giving your database details. This error also comes if you are trying to run create configuration database by using SharePoint 2015 Management Shell.

SharePoint-2013-Hosting1The Error

The error comes when we tried to run the New-SPConfigurationDatbase command from the Management Shell. The full command was like this:

New-SPConfigurationDatabase –DatabaseName SharePoint_Config –DatabaseServer WIN-JC2B1V15KM5 –AdministrationContentDatabaseName SharePoint_Content –Passphrase (ConvertTo-SecureString Qwerty@12345 –AsPlaintext –Force) –FarmCredentials (Get-Credential) -localserverrole SingleServerFarm

And the error came as like below:

Sharepoint installation

The Solution

The account which we were using does have proper permission, so it was not able to create the configuration database. The below permission is required to create configuration database:

  • Dbcreator
  • SecurityAdmin
  • SysAdmin

When we gave proper permission and then try to re-run the PowerShell command, it runs successfully and also when we run the product and configuration wizard, we would not get the issue.
