Today my development machine decided to crash and burn down. SharePoint Central admin was no longer working. When that no longer works, step one is to start the configuration wizard and hope it fixes everything. But that failed as well. It did however gave me an exception that helped me figure out what was going wrong: An exception of type System.Security.Principal.IdentityNotMappedException was thrown. Additional exception information: Some or all identity references could not be translated.
In my SharePoint logs I had the following error popping up constantly:

12/14/2009 13:50:01.32 OWSTIMER.EXE (0x0160) 0x0168 Windows SharePoint Services Timer 5uuq Unexpected ERROR: Failed invoking job id {A71C27B4-9023-4727-A90B-3E60171CF790}
12/14/2009 13:50:04.31 OWSTIMER.EXE (0x0160) 0x00DC Windows SharePoint Services General 8e2s Medium Unknown SPRequest error occurred. More information: 0x80070005

So something was wrong with the identities. As it is a development box and no one else touches it but me I knew none of the identies/passwords were changed. I have no clue how it went wrong, but by making use of stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -userlong -password I managed to get everything up and running again.

Normally I don’t blog about events, but this one was especially nice as, for those who don’t know it, ScottGu always presents in a red polo. As an original addition the people organizing the event had everyone in the audience wear a red polo as well. This resulted in some great pictures:
