FarmCredentialManagement.aspx

While building out yet another SharePoint 2013 development environment, I decided to change a number of service accounts and delete the old ones from Active Directory. Everything seems fine until I ended up trying to go the http://centralAdmin:5555/admin/FarmCredentialManagement.aspx page to add some other ones. Instead of the page, I got an error message the logged the error the ULS:

Application error when access /_admin/FarmCredentialManagement.aspx, Error=Some or all identity references could not be translated.

I used

Get-SPManagedAccount

To show me all the managed accounts and it became obvious to show the accounts that had been deleted in AD but not cleaned up from the farm.

UserName             PasswordExpiration    Automatic ChangeSchedule
Change
——–             ——————    ——— ————–
LABS\svcSP.FarmAdmin 7/4/2013 5:49:43 AM   False
LABS\svcSP.MySite…                       False
LABS\svcSP.Search… 7/4/2013 5:49:44 AM   False
LABS\svcSP.Services  7/4/2013 5:49:45 AM   False
LABS\svcSP.Portal…                       False
LABS\svcSP.MySite_AP 7/17/2013 3:08:12 AM  False
LABS\svcSP.Portal_AP 7/17/2013 3:08:19 AM  False
LABS\svcSP.Search_AP 7/17/2013 3:16:07 AM  False

A quick check documented the broken ones: (All on one line)

Get-SPManagedAccount | ? {$_.PasswordExpiration -eq $ null}

UserName             PasswordExpiration    Automatic ChangeSchedule
Change
——–             ——————    ——— ————–
LABS\svcSP.MySite…                       False
LABS\svcSP.Portal…                       False

 

And a further one deleted it: (All on one line)

Get-SPManagedAccount | ? {$_.PasswordExpiration -eq $null}

| Remove-SPManagedAccount

Hope that helps anyone…
