Error message when you open a Commerce Server 2009 Web site that is integrated into SharePoint when the SQL Server and the Commerce Server are installed on different computers: "Server Error in '/' Application"

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that has Microsoft Commerce Server 2009 installed.
  • You create a Commerce Server 2009 Web site that is integrated into Microsoft SharePoint by using SharePoint Commerce Services Configuration Wizard.
  • You host the site data in SQL Server on another computer.
  • The site uses Windows Integrated Authentication (also known as NTLM authentication).
  • You try to open the site by using a Windows account.
In this scenario, you cannot open the site. Additionally, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
Server Error in '/' Application.
Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
  • This problem does not occur when you use forms-based authentication on the site.
  • When this problem occurs, you can still open SharePoint sites that use NTLM authentication if the sites are not Commerce Server 2009 sites.

Situation 3

Web parts were customized by using the CommerceSharePointExtensibilityKit tool:
Installation instructions for situation 3
  • Install the following hotfix installers:
    • CS2009-KB975603-x86.exe
    • CommerceServer2007SP3-KB975603-ENU.exe
  • Locate the updated source file SiteContext.cs in the source folder that is included in the hotfix package.
  • Use this source file to replace the SiteContext.cs file that is in CommerceSharePointExtensibilityKit.
  • Compile the Web parts assemblies.
  • Update the "httpmodules" section of the Web.config file to use the new httpmodules as in situation 2.
  • There may be other custom codes that require elevated permissions on the server. For example, the external data store accessing code and the error logging code both require elevated permission. These customs codes must be elevated by using the RunWithElevatedPrivileges method. This makes sure the identity of the Application Pool (also known as SharePoint System Account) is used instead of the impersonated user identity.
  • The CommerceSharePointExtensibilityKit tool is in the following location:
    %Program Files%\Microsoft Commerce Server 2007\Microsoft Commerce Server 2009\Sdk\Samples\
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
