In the case of the error during the portal startup, a more detailed description of the problem can be found by collecting a ptspy taken during the initial page load.

error: PortalObjectsFactory Initialization Failure (.NET)

Platform: Windows (.NET)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Recommendation Summary
failure FATAL: PortalObjectsFactory Initialization Failure (.NET)
recommendation RECOMMENDATION: Review the exception listed below for more details. Since OpenKernel initialized correctly, this usually means that the portal database is not scripted or properly configured, or there is an installation problem related to .NET assemblies. This may mean the search libraries are not on your path. Try running ptverify.
exception OKConfigException OpenKernel configuration failure. This usually means INVALID DATABASE SETTINGS. Run ptconfig to verify your database connection. If this fails, check the web application server user's access rights to the file system. Finally, verify the XML settings files are not corrupt.

The complete stack trace for the error, which can be found in the ptspy output is below -
