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
