I am currently implementing a Sharepoint 2010 Multi-Tenancy solution. Multi-tenancy is the partitioning of service applications in 2010 to allow data to be separated between web applications or site collections.
I am using multi-tenancy to separate data and user profiles between site collections hosted on a single web application.
I have partitioned the User Profile Service Application and Proxy using Windows Powershell.
The paritioned Proxy Application is then associated with the single web application. I am also using the Sharepoint Foundation Subscription Service Application to subscribe to different site collections within the web application. In this way data and user
profiles can be separated.
However, the tenant administration site, used to manage each collection, does not allow administrator access to manage the User Profile Service. I receive a standard Sharepoint 'Access Denied' error message. No other errors or details are provided.
I have tried assigning different accounts to the tenant administration site but the error still appears.
The issue arises when I issue the following SPSite Powershell cmdlet: NEW-SPSite -Owneralias DOMAIN\Username -Secondaryowneralias DOMAIN\Username.
The attributes provided in the Cmdlet above are used to assign tenant site administrators however, the accounts cannot access the User Profile Service.
Any ideas or recommendati
