  1. Hi,

    I had a different cause of this error.

    For whatever reason the intranet application pool account did not have access to the SP Config DB.
    Which is odd, but i confirmed this visually in SQL.

    Not all users have access to SQL, so on the SP server open PowerShell as an admin.
    Run the following PowerShell code which grants access to the SP_Config DB as well as the content DB of the URL provided.

    $w = Get-SPWebApplication -identity "http://SiteURL"
    $w.GrantAccessToProcessIdentity(“Domain\ServiceAccount_of_intranet_App_Pool”)

    Regards,
    Andrew
