Error when trying to add UniqueColumnPolicy to farm

Apr 17, 2008 at 9:36 PM

I hope someone can explain this. When I try to execute the command "stsadm -o addsolution -filename c:\UniqueColumnPolicy.wsp" it errors off with the message "Object reference not set to an instance of an object. c:\UniqueColumnPolicy.wsp: The Solution Installation failed.

When I check the Event Viewer on the server there's a message saying that "logon failed to the sql server" for my username. I'm using a windows domain account, and I just changed my password this morning, but I've successfully been able to log into multiple servers on the domain, including the MOSS server.

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? I've added solutions to this farm before with no problems.

Try running from the same directory where UniqueColumnPolicy.wsp is located
