  • Hi,

    I understand when you click User profile and Properties, you get Access Denied error. You need to grant the user permission according to the steps below:

      • Open Central Administration and log in as the account which is used to install SharePoint(Or use farm administrator to have a test).
      • Click Shared Services in the navigation pane.
      • Click Site Actions>Site settings> Advanced permissions. Here you can grant the user permission to access this Shared Services site.
      • Back to Shared Services site and click ‘Personalization services permissions’.
      • Click Add Users/Groups to grant the user permission to access user profiles and properties.

    Thanks,

  • User profiles and properties is in the SSP Administration site. There is a link to your SSPs in the left navigation in Central Administration.

  • You need to either make your account a site collection administrator of the SSP admin site collection (Central Administration -> Application Management -> Site collection administrators) or give your user a full control user policy on the web application that contains the SSP admin site collection (Application Management -> Policy for Web application).

    Once you can access the SSP admin site, you may need to grant yourself permissions to manage user profiles. Click on the Personalization service permissions and grant your account all rights.

    You should now be able to manage the import through the User profiles and properties link on the main SSP administration page.

  • I already have myself setup as you suggested but not able to get these options to work when I am running Central Admin on production server.  When I launch Central Administration on my development server and point URL to production server then all these options are avaiable.

  • I still get the same 'Access Denied' error. 

    I am logged in site collection administrator of the SSP admin site collection (Central Administration -> Application Management -> Site collection administrators) and have full control user policy on the web application that contains the SSP admin site collection (Application Management -> Policy for Web application).

  • Hi, this thread was concerning SharePoint 2007. From your screenshot it looks like you are running SharePoint 2010.

    If you have a question or need help I recommend starting a new thread specific to your problem.
