All users have "Limited access" to MOSS Site even Site Admins

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

hi All.

We are running MOSS 2007 Stand-alone server on server 2003 SP2.

We had perfectly running MOSS site with Document Libraries and Custom Lists with almost 10 subsites. 

Suddenly today no one can edit or upload any new items or documents.

Under "Site Permissions", all the users have "Limited Access" permission level including Site Admins as well.

I have logged in as Site Admin and "Edit user Permission" under "Site Permissions" is not available anymore.

I know its a security issue but is there any way I can reset the security settings on Parenet Site.

(All the the subsites inherit security from the parent site)

All Users (Including Site Collection Admins) receiving Access Denied from one Site Collection

I usually spend my time in the forums answering questions.  But this time I need the help. I’ve got a client who somehow has succeeded in locking EVERYONE out of one of their Site Collections.  Users can authenticate to the site, but get an accessdenied page when you try to access anything in the site collection, including pages served from the _Layouts virtual directory.  The AccessDenied page shows that they are authenticated, but not authorized.  This is true for Site Collection admins and user’s who have been given Grant Full Control via a Web Application Permission Policy.  Central Admin and one other site collection are behaving normally.  I've already checked for database permissions - the service account can access the database fine. I've also checked for a locked database or overextended quota.  It's not that either. The accessdenied page url references the users list in the root of the site collection as the offending list denying access.   Does anyone have any ideas?Paul Stork SharePoint Server MVP

Site Skinning: Rich XML Classes Let Users Personalize Their Visual Experience on Your ASP.NET Site


One way that Web sites and applications become better able to meet the needs of customers is by allowing them to personalize their experience. For Web sites, this means displaying the content as the user wants to see it. For rich-client applications, this often means allowing the user to choose the user interface through a technique known as skinning, which is similar to themes in Windows XP. This article shows how you can apply skinning to Web sites, wrapping their functionality in a new user interface. The technique uses the rich XML classes in the .NET Framework and the built-in extensibility of ASP.NET.

How to create a single entry page for site collections in MOSS 2007



I have  7 site collections containing a few hundred team collaboration sites. Some users are internal (intranet) but most are external (extranet). Extranet users are experiencing problems with losing links to their sites and forgetting which URLs to use. So I would like to create a single entry page that all users can enter after the logon process, which shows a list of sites they have permission to access, and other user-specific information. Perhaps relevant documents, tasks, recently modified documents etc.

I know this sounds like a 'My Site' but we want to use use a general welcome page instead. We use Windows authentication.
What is the best way of doing this and is it something that can be done in SharePoing Designer or does it need to be done in Visual Studio?

Many thanks in advance.

MOSS Site with Basic Authentication and variations does not work on one node

Hi, We have one MOSS Farm with two nodes, on this we have several sites. For one specific site we have Basic Authentication and variations enabled in it, on one node site works fine. When we browse it pops-up for credentials and once credentials are provided it works fine and properly redirect to source variation home page. But on the other node when we browse the site it pops-up asking for credentials then after providing correct credentials it again asks for credentials twice and then it throws the following error : Access denied.   You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource. And if we directly put the source site homepage url it throws following error: 401 UNAUTHORIZED We have checked the Alternate Access Mappings for the site and it is perfectly fine, if i enable windows authentication on the defected node the site works fine. This issue is just like pain in the neck still no resolution, please help us to resolve this issue. Regards, Jasjeet Singh

User keeps getting deleted from MOSS site

Hello All, There is one user with contribute rights who keeps getting deleted from a team sub site that is on MOSS 2007. She has weekly reports that she works on and i was told that she doesnt really get on to the site very often except once or twice a week to update the reports. There is only one business owner of the site apart from me and who can modify permissions. So i cannot think of anybody else who has access to mess with user permissions. Has anybody had this issue before ?
