I'm having issues with a cloned 2013-SP1 environment (specifically the Content Manager server). We've done this in the past without really any significant problems, but this time things aren't going so smoothly as there are more variables that are changing with the new server - server name, same user accounts, but different passwords, etc.
The first thing I figured I needed to do was to update the licenses, then update the COM+ identity and then change settings in the Tridion Configuration Manager. When I tried to access the database and other settings in the configuration manager, I receive the following error:
Could not read configuration item... [user] has no permission to access the protected configuration section.
I've attempted to run the following as suggested in another StackExchange question:
aspnet_regiis -pa "TridionRsaKeyContainer" "<domain>\<account>"
But doing that results in the following error:
The RSA key container was not found.
I also tried to run MMC as the MTSUser, but I still get the protected configuration error.
I'm hoping I don't need to reinstall the entire Tridion stack for this new environment, but I'm beginning to fear I will. Any help is greatly appreciated.
