Sitecore: login fails

Modified: 2012/03/14 16:15 by vanthoog - Categorized as: Sitecore
In Sitecore it may sometimes happen that it is impossible to login into the backend. The symptoms are:
- A login attempt always fails.
- No error is reported in the Sitecore logfile.
- In the (application) event log the message “Membership credential verification failed” is recorded.

The cause of this problem is usually the fact that the core database (or its transaction log) is full.

To solve this problem just make sure that the database (and its transaction log) has some free space available and that the device, on which the core database is stored, has some free space available.
