Unable to create new SSP in the farm, getting error message “Provisioning failed: user cannot be found”



          Logged to SharePoint server

          Opened Central administration site

          Clicked ok Application management>>site collection administrator

          Checked site collection administrator for every web application and got site administrator for central administrator  who is no more in use and removed from AD

          Provided site administrator as your account and clicked ok.

          Deleted the failed SSP

          Clicked Shared Service administration and  clicked ok New SSP to create new SSP with existing new web applications.

          Now SSP has been created and opened successfully.


This issue is resolved.
