Hey everyone, I have some serious Sharepoint 3.0 Issues.
For starters, after the upgrade to Sharepoint 3.0, the Windows Search Server
went down, along with all site access. I spent hours bringing every site
back online, but I have no access whatsoever to the Sharepoint Admin. I get
"Error: Access Denied" for every single user account.
I have read hundreds of articles online for fixing this issue and they all
say to login as another user and delete and re-add the broken user account.
What do you do when all user accounts are broken?
Also, when going to the Sharepoint admin panel, it will take me to http://serverort/_admin/SearchServerWizard.aspx
before bouncing to the
access denied page. I have been pulling my hair out for over a week now and
have yet to figure any of it out.
So far I have tried completely uninstalling Search Server and Sharepoint,
following up with a fresh install of Sharepoint 3.0. Unfortunately, even
after complete uninstalls and a server restart, I keep getting sent to the
SearchServerWizard.aspx file which crashes! So, I reinstalled Search Server
and finally get the Access Denied message.
The main admin account I use, as well as all user accounts that are in the
Domain Admins user group have Sharepoint Admin access in Active Directory.
I am running Windows SBS 2008 with SP2 installed.
I am running Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0
I also have Windows Search Server Express installed.
Any help in regaining access to my Sharepoint install is greatly
