Any domain operation such as reconfiguring, permissions check,  file management etc. fails with the following error:

    Unknown error 0xC00CE554 ( COM Error C00CE554 )

Examples for different actions:

    C:\\Program Files\\SWsoft\\Plesk\\admin\\bin>websrvmng.exe --reconfigure-vhost --vhost-name=domain.tld
    __Unknown error 0xC00CE554 (COM Error C00CE554) at addHosting(domain.tld)
    __   at (WebServerManager::addHosting line 2395)
    __   at execute console command --reconfigure-vhost(vconsoleapp::start line 128)

    FileManager::set\_file\_permissions() failed: Can not set permissions using filemng utility: Unknown error 0xC00CE554 (COM Error C00CE554) at execute "C:\\Program Files\\SWsoft\\Plesk\\/admin/bin/filemng" ftp\_user\_name --permissions --set-common "--file=C:/inetpub/vhosts/domain.tld/httpdocs/App\_Data" __"--xml=C:\\Program Files\\SWsoft\\Plesk\\/tmp\\per790E.tmp"_


The problem is corrupted C:\Intepub\vhsost\domain.tld\.Security file, which is responsible for domain security permissions and is used when any domain action is done.


To fix the problem with corruption of .Security file and avoid such problem in the future, please download the archive below, extract all files from there:

and place them to %plesk_bin% folder.

After that please go to C:\Inetpub\vhosts\domain.tld and remove_ .Security_ file from there.


%plesk_dir% is environment variable which points to Plesk installation folder. By default it is C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk

%plesk_bin% is environment variable which points to Plesk binaries folder. By default it is C:\Program Files\SWsoft\Plesk\admin\bin
