SharePoint:error while accessing SSP

Issue:
When i tried to go to default SSP it is showing the below error message:
Service Unavailable
HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.

And i thought of creating new SSP and routing it to existing web application
But we see the following error message:

An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface. Exception Information: Invalid URI: A port was expected because of there is a colon (':') present but the port could not be parsed

If we want to find the root cause we need to change the web.config file, but it may cause the space issue in the WFE servers....so what to do.

Resolution:

If you are facing the current issue, check this steps

If its a 503 error, check the credentials of the application pool whether its matching or not change the identity to Built-In accout or specify the particular accout
you can see this in the right hand side of Application pool Actions-->your app-->identity
change the identity

and if you have corrupted SSP or the secon error message you need to do the following steps:

  1. Create new SSP using STSADM command.

Syntax

stsadm -o createssp
   -title <SSP name>
   -url <Web application URL>
   -mysiteurl <MySite URL>
   -ssplogin <user name>
   -indexserver <index server>
   -indexlocation <index file path>
   [-ssppassword <password>]
   [-sspdatabaseserver <SSP database server>]
   [-sspdatabasename <SSP database name>]
   [-sspsqlauthlogin <SQL user name>]
   [-sspsqlauthpassword <SQL password>]
   [-searchdatabaseserver <search database server>]
   [-searchdatabasename <search database name>]
   [-searchsqlauthlogin <SQL user name>]
   [-searchsqlauthpassword <SQL password>]
   [-ssl <yes|no>]
  1. route all the exsting webapplications to the new SSP using central admin.
  2. make the new SSP as default one.
  3. Delete the exsting one using STSADM command.

Syntax

stsadm -o deletessp
   -title <SSP name>
   [-deletedatabases]
   [-force]

thats it its works fine.
