I just "upgraded" my installation of SharePoint 2010 Foundation with Search Server Express 2010. During the installation, I was able to access and configure the Search Service Application.
However, a day later, I cannot access the application management page: I get an access denied error. I am the farm administrator, so supposedly I am supposed to have access to the management page. I've also tried adding my login to the "Full
Control" group of the Search Application; it gives me the same error. It appears that the only account that can access the administration page is the service/system account. Obviously this would not be ideal.
I've tried looking around for logs to see if anything is amiss, but there appears to be nothing logged.
What gives? How do I fix it?
