Access Denied Error

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I am trying to update the useraccount directory path for a site as recommended by microsoft to limit

people picker settings to be within an organization.


Following code is executed from within webservice running under sharepoint app pool identity.


SPSite mysite= new SPSite(url);

mysite.UserAccountDirectoryPath=path; // I get an access denied error on executing this line.


I have tried the same code under SPSecurity.RunWithElevatedPrivileges. It still does not work.


I have also tried impersonating using LogonUserA.


Other functionality like SPWeb Update works. Except for this particular property on the site.


Is there anything obvious i am missing.


any response would be apprciated.


PS. I have tried the same code from stand alone application and it works.

Access Denied error


I have read several posts where this access denied to path ex.('c:\test' ).  The only way I got this to work was adding <identity impersonate> using my credentials in the web.config file but I don't want to use my credentials all the time.  I have Windows as the authentication mode so why doesn't it work without supplying my credentials?  I tried giving Network Service account write permissions to the folder but that doesn't work either.

"[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied error for a sched

Hi Guys, The subject of this question is the error which I am receiving when running a scheduled job also this is an error which we get at a random intervals and the frequency would be once or twice in a month. I have been through several posts and didn't concluded anything out of it. At the time when we receive this error the memory usage of the database was normal with free resources available and also the network was stable without issues. Our Sql database is in cluster mode with named instance. Can anyone share some information on this, I know this is not the right forum with the error message I have posted but am sure some one might have face the same problem when running some ETL jobs. Source and target both are sql server and the error message is generated in the validation phase of the connection manager connecting to target database. SSIS 2005 SP2 64 bit environmentRaju

Error: Access Denied with WCF (webHttpHandler)

Hi, I have build a WCF webservice and added it to a sharepoint solution. This works fine. but I also want to be able to consume the service with ASP.NET Ajax (javascript). I modified the config file and added an other endpoint that uses webHttpBinding and also uses the webScriptBehavior. the basicHttpBinding and the webHttpBinding both use clientCredentialType ="Ntlm". When I type in my URL http://{server}/myService.svc I see my service. But when I want to download the jsDebug, with the URL http://{server}/myService.svc/javascript/jsDebug, I get: Error: Access Denied from SharePoint (_layouts/AccessDenied.aspx?Source..) does anyone have a suggestion how to fix this? this is what my config file looks like:   <configuration> <system.serviceModel> <serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled ="true"/> <bindings> <basicHttpBinding> <binding name ="customBasicHttpBinding"> <security mode ="TransportCredentialOnly"> <transport clientCredentialType ="Ntlm"/> </security> </binding> </basicHttpBinding> <webHttpBinding> <binding name ="customWebHttpBinding"> <security mode ="TransportCredentialOnly"> <transport clientCredentialType ="Ntlm&quo

Uploading a file to a document library produces access denied error, but only on first try.

Hi I have a task which uses a custom form which is part of a custom workflow.  The form incorporates an asp fileUpload control to allow a user to browse for a local file which they can then select and it will be upload a file to a folder in a document library.  The first time this action is performed the folder in the document library will not exist so the code creates a folder and then uploads the file to it. The problem I have is, the first time users try and upload a file the directory is created in the document library as expected, but then the user gets redirected to the standard SharePoint Access Denied page.  If the user goes back to the task list, then loads the task web page again, selects the same file and hits upload, then the file is uploaded fine. All subsequent file uploads work fine after that for all users. Users have Contribute permissions on the document library. The code to do the upload is as follows.  The task has a "CR Number" associated with it, which the directory in the doc library should be called.  It uploads the file to a stream.  Then gets the url of the web and works out the file url and uploads it.  The creation and checking of the folder in the doc library happens in the getDirUrl method. /// <summary> /// Processes an uploaded file. /// </summary> /// <param name="

Access Denied/The workflow could not copy the item workflow error after Sharepoint 2010 upgrade

We have a sharepoint designer workflow that copies a document from one library to another on the same site.  Before the upgrade to 2007 it worked fine, but now with 2010 it gives an error and cancels the workflow when it gets to the copy list item step.   The error on the workflow page: The workflow could not copy the item. Make sure the source and destination lists have the same columns and column settings.  Access Denied   Specifically it is the "copy list item current item to documentlibrary" sharepoint designer workflow action.   I have given the system account full permissions to the library and double checked that all columns are the same in both libraries.

winrm error: access denied

Hi, I want to use winrm. I have Windows 7 installed and configure it for workgroup not domain. Each simple winrm command leads to the error message:   Access is denied Mr. google and several forums told me to: * execute the winrm command just with having administrator rights * to create the DWORD LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy  [HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System] and set to 1 * Use Local Security Settings (Secpol.msc) to change the setting of the      "Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts" policy      in Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options to "Classic". * administrator must have a non blank password * first execute      winrm quickconfig I did all those hints. Unfortunatly I still recieve the error "Access is denied" for each even simple winrm command. I need WinRm, I have to fix the problems under my Windows 7. It must work. Please help me and tell me what else must be done, to get it running.     In advance thanks a lot

Error reading .config file in Windows Forms app - Access is denied

I'm attempting to read a connection string from a .config file in a Windows Forms app on a test laptop. A previous version of the application worked just fine, but now I get a configuration exception thrown - "Configuration system failed to initialize." The inner exception message says - "An error occurred loading a configuration file: Access is denied". The user I'm logged in as is in the Administrators group and there's no obvious problems with the config file. The same config file works just fine on my dev machine so it's not an issue with ordering of the XML. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.If a response to your question is helpful or answers it please mark it as such!

SSIS Execute Process Task Give "Access is Denied" error but it is not related to access control.

Hello All - I have a very weired SSIS problem. I am using BIDS in two machines - Windows 7 Professional Edition x64 bit (development workstation) and Windows 2003 Standard Edition x32 bit SP2 (server) . The visual studio version on both the machines are Version 2.0.50727 SP2. I found that my package's ExecuteProcessTask fails with "Access is denied" error in Windows2003 but runs ok in Windows 7 dev box. I then tried to debug the package in the Windows 2003 environment itself. The package failed in debug mode too with the same message. After looking for a while I found that when I shorten the Argument length of the failing ExecuteProcessTask the task did seem to work. So in Windows2003 environment if my argument exceeds 1846 characters the ExecuteProcessTask fails with message "Access is Denied". If the argument string is less than 1846 it works ok. In Windows 7 environment there is no problem at all. It does not seem like access problem but I may be wrong. Has anyone seen this? I will appreciate any reply. Thanks, Niben  

Crawl Log error: Access Denied

Hi,I've been using MOSS for a few months. Previously, I've concentrating on developing some specific webpart, so I didn't really test the standard features like search, etc.Just yesterday, I do a search which should return some results, but it shows none. So I checked the Crawl Logs and it shows this 1 error:====https://intranet.companyname.comAccess is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content, or add a crawl rule to crawl this content. (The item was deleted because it was either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)====I only have 1 Content Source, which is the default "Local Office SharePoint Server sites". The Defaul Content Access Account is a special account created for the crawer. I've tried remote desktop to the MOSS server, opening IE, and try to access that URL using the crawl account, and I can successfully logged in.Any hints on where to look for the problem?Regards.

Error: Access Denied on default.aspx and other pages of existing and new sites

Hi, since today we can't access the project portals of all our projects (Visual Studio TFS 2008/sharepoint admin 3.0 running on esx 4.0). I already checked every possible security settings, they're all OK. I also tried creating a new site but I can't access the site. I can however access all the settings. For example when I try to access: http://server/Sites/Profel I get the "Error: Access Denied" message and the browser is redirected to http://server/Sites/Profel/_layouts/AccessDenied.aspx?Source=http%3A%2F%2Fserver%2FSites%2FProfel%2Fdefault%2Easpx I have no problem navigating to: http://server/sites/Profel/_layouts/settings.aspx and I can go to al lot of pages, but when I want to create something like a calendar I can specify the parameters but when I click the create button I get the same error. http://server/Sites/Profel/_layouts/AccessDenied.aspx?Source=http%3A%2F%2Fserver%2FSites%2FProfel%2FLists%2Ftest%2Fcalendar%2Easpx&Type=list&name=%7B46CB3B46%2DD0F6%2D47F5%2DBA1A%2D3C9654A24A8E%7D I already tried this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926642  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896861/en-us but no success Any help is welcome, Greetz, Peter

Access is denied error thrown in "Setup Secure Session" activity


Could someone help me with the following issue, please?

System setup:
- Windows 2008 R2 server hosting both MVC2 web application and WCF service for it;
- users connect to the web application which gets all data from the WCF services;
- WCF services are resused by several other applications (WinForms based) which work fine and have never experienced any security related problems;
- MVC2 uses impersonation (<identity impersonate="true"/>) to connect to WCF services, so we have single security boundary for both web and winforms clients (which are out of scope of the problem);
- both MVC2 web application and WCF services share the same ASP.NET v4.0 DefaultAppPool application pool, running under NetworkService identity;
- all users, user PCs and servers belong to the same AD domain, which is a part of global corporate tree;
- all unhandled exceptions are automatically caught by the web application and forwarded to application developers' e-mail box;
- WCF binding setup in web application:

    <binding name="WSHttpBinding_BifrostServices" closeTimeout="00:10:00"
     openTimeout="00:10:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:10:00"
