SharePoint 2010, “The specified user or domain group was not found”
My Environment details:
SharePoint 2010 standalone installation on Windows 7.
You may face above error if you go to following locations from Central Administrator
Application Management -> Manage service Applications
Security -> Configure service accounts
You open SharePoint 2010 management shell and type following command.
Get-SpServiceApplication Get-SpServiceApplication : The specified user or domain group was not found. At line:1 chr:25 ...
You might have rename or deleted user account on your environment.
Open SQL server and go to your SharePoint_Configuration Database. Run below command.
SELECT [Name], [Version], CAST([Properties] as xml) From [SharePoint_Config].[dbo].[Objects] with (nolock) Where [Name] LIKE ‘%Profile%’
click on xml2 data for 'User Profile Service Application' service name.
open xml data and search for 'm_SerializedAcl'. You will see users that are added. Just check whether that users exists or not on from your computer management screen. If not than you can create user from
Computer -> Manage -> Local Users and Groups -> users -> add user.
and than try to open above links.
I was able to open the link 'Manage service Applications' and 'Configure service accounts'. I had accidently renamed my existing user that's why it was showing such error.
Hope that's Useful.
