site colleciton admin gets [sorry this site hasn't been shared with you]


  • We just migrated a SharePoint 2013 site to a test SharePoint 2016 site. The developer that did the migration is able to view the site with no issues, however, I cannot and I'm setup as a Site Collection Admin. When I access the site I get [sorry, this site hasn't been shared with you]. What would cause a SC Admin get that error?

    We cleaned out the cache, IIS reset, etc.

  • What account your developer used. Did you use any third party tools for migration?

  • Hi,

    How did you migrate the site? Database attach?

    Is SharePoint 2016 in the same domain as SharePoint 2013?

    If they are in same domain, please run the command below to see what happens:

    $w = Get-SPWebApplication “”

    Best Regards,
