Error creating Web Application on SharePoint 2010 through Central Administration


 « »    


I tried to create a Web Application on SharePoint 2010 through the Central Administration and received the following error, “Specified value is not supported for the parameter”.

This error message is kind of vague. After some troubleshooting I discovered it could not verify the account I was using because my Domain Controller was offline.

Cannot contact Domain Controller was the reason I got this error message. I had my Domain Controller powered off.
