Can't use Domain User Account as Primary Administrator while creating site collection RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am installing Microsoft Team Foundation Server and it is required to install "Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0" earlier then this. I installed it and tried to create a "Site Collection" but i am not able to choose a "Domain User Account (Domain\User)" as Primary administrator even though this account is included in the "Farm Administrator Group" and "Site Collection Administrator Group" as well.

    It says that it can't identify the User Account.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

  • Hi All,

    I re installed the Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 and problem went away.

    The only difference i did this time was to not change the description of default website (Default web site was created using STSADM.exe command).

    Last time i changed the description for default website and it created the problem i guess.
