Access denied on "Configure service accounts"


Just installed a standalone, developer's instance of Sharepoint 2010 on my Windows7 workstation per the instructions outlined in the MSDN article:


When I try to click on the Configure service accounts link on Sharepoint Central Administration site, I get an access denied error.  My windows ID is local to the workstation and it has full administrator rights.  My Id is in the Farm Administrator's group plus the BUILTIN\Administrators group.  Why can't I access this link?  Everything else appears to working fine (still testing).



WCF Service Unable to Access Personal Certificate Store Unless Service Account is Logged In

I created a WCF service that has a method which makes a call to a SOAP web service over the internet. In order to make a call to the SOAP web service, it requires that an X.509 certificate be sent with the HttpWebRequest. The X.509 certificates are loaded in the Personal and Trusted Certificate store of the account which the service is running under. When the service account is logged into the server, everything works just fine. However, when the service account is not physically logged onto the server, it has problems loading up the X.509 certificate and fails authentication when trying to make the HttpWebRequest. I am new to WCF services so I don't even know where to start looking. Can anyone please help? Thanks in advance.

Unable to access sub site from all farm WFEs

I know there is probably a simple explanation for this, but so far I've not found it.  I'm simply creating a new site collection (sites/subsite) for the default port 80 web application and am able to access it from wfe1, but not from other wfes in the farm. So, the default site collection (/) is already there and can be accessed from any WFE in the farm (i.e. http://wfe1/ http://wfe2, etc..)  No I go to create a new site collection and am using the following URL http://wfe1/sites/subsite.  From WFE1 I can access the new site no problem. But, if I try and go through wfe2, etc. (http://wfe2/sites/subsite), I get an immediate HTTP 404 Not Found error.  I've tried adding alternate access mapping for each wfe in the farm and that seems to work, but doesn't that essentially mean that all request are answered by wfe1? This was not the default behavior in SP7.  What has changed?

Web Service Unable to access Directory (Temporary ASP.NET Files) CS0016

QuestionMoving web service to a production level server. This is not a new server, but is new to running an ASP.NET 2.0 web service. No other websites or services existed on this server.

Installed .Net 2 and specified that ASP is registered for 2.0 using aspnet_regiis. Installed missing components such as Front page extensions. When I try to browse to the services asmx page I get the error saying that the process has a compilation error and cannot access the asp.net temp directory under the 2.0 Framework. I looked at the directory and it appears that the asp.net process and others have correct access.

Note a basic asp.net page will come up as well as a basic html page.

All comments are welcome.

  • .Net 2
  • ASP.NET aspnet_regiis specifies .Net 2 as root
  • C#

Reporting Service Integration, Unable to access Reporting Services Site Settings

[SOLVED] .Net 2 Service unable to access Connection String in Machine.config

I have a Windows Service I have developed in Visual Studio 2005 (C#).

It accesses a database using a connection string in machine.config.

On my Windows XP Pro 32bit (SP3) machine, it works correctly.

On my new Windows 7 Pro 64bit machine, it throws "object not set to an instance of an object" when it gets to the line where it's trying use the connection string.
This is the 'object' which is not set in Windows 7:


The machine.config has the same connection string set up on both machines.

A .Net 2 website transferred to the Windows 7 machine has no problem accessing the same connection string.

I have tried a bunch of different permissions on the machine.config and its containing folders, and setting the service to log in as Admin, but I don't know exactly what permissions are required.

Does anyone know what's going on here? Many thanks.

ASP.NET Allow Admin Users Access Basic Users Accounts


We have an ASP.Net web application currently released to the public, that uses Membership and Provider features and have our users assign to a "Basic" role.  What we are working on doing is developing an administrative site, so that administrators (presumably to be assigned an "Admin" role), are able to login to the administrative site, where they will have access to a list of users in the "Basic" role.
From the admin site, we want to allow the administrators to click on any of the "Basic" users and effectively be logged into there account (loading the user's profile information in the process, as is the case when a "Basic" user logs in), while still remaining lo

Error Consuming Web Service - Unable to import binding xxx from namespace ...


In VS2008 / C# / ASP.NET 3.5, I wrote a test web service app. Here is an extract from the code:

namespace emed.MathWebService

    /// Sample Math Services For Learning Web Services Deployment

I have published this to an IIS virtual directory named MathService, and when I try to launch it with the URL http://localhost/mathservice/MathService.asmx is works fine and displays all the operations (Add, Subtract etc) in the service.

I then created a test web application in VS2008 (named WebSvcTe

With Anonymous access disabled, is there any way to use an AJAX-enabled WCF Service?

I have a website where anonymous access is disabled but I want to user an ajax-enabled WCF service. Configuring the service's binding security to use "TransportCredentialOnly" with clientCredentialType="Windows" seems like the obvious thing to do; indeed, many posts in various places suggest this approach. Unfortunately, however, it doesn't work. I always get the error "Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous' Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service." How can I configure the service to function correctly. I'm running IIS 7.5 with .Net framework 4.0. Thanks.
