When I go to the home page of the portal I get “unexpected error has occured” and Web Parts Maintenance Page: If you have permission, you can use this page to temporarily disable Web Parts or remove personal settings. For more information, contact your site administrator.


 


I click the link to web parts maintance page and get


 


Array cannot be null.


Parameter name: source


 


the URL being <A href="https:///_layouts/1033/spcontnt.aspx?&url=%2fdefault.aspx”>https://<servername>/_layouts/1033/spcontnt.aspx?&url=%2fdefault.aspx


 


Any ideas?  Seams to have happened out of the blue?  My WSS sites still work fine also.

Thanks for the suggestion Dave.  I didn’t have to go that far.


 


I found the answer.  Someone installed another instance of SQL an the server.  In doing so they destroyed the ability of the default instance to bind to TCP 1433.  SharePoint don’t like not having TCP.  SQL was still running on named pipes but SPS apparently requires TCP.  Good times.
