  • Tamim --

    If your user account is a member of any other security Groups in Project Server 2010, that could block you from editing the Enterprise Global file if one of your groups has a Deny permission set.  Remove yourself from all security Groups other than the default Administrators group and let us know if this resolves the problem for you.

  • Thank you Dale,

    I already did that, the user is assigned to Administrator Group, and the group assgined My Organization category permission, also ALL Global Permissions are granted, there is no Deny permission applied, realy confusing...!!! Any Ideas..

  • Hi Tamin,


    When you are trying to edit enterprise global, Server will open MS Projects client for you to do the same. If you dont connect using the administrator login password while opening ms projects client it wont let you do any changes.

    First check if you have created a profile in Client or not, if yes than make sure that while editing you tick the box to enter login credentials on Client and use administrator credentials to login

    Let me know if it works.

  • Here's how I'd troubleshoot this.  In addition to Dale's suggestion, I'd

    1.  Remove the user from all groups except the administrator's group.

    2.  ensure that there are no security permissions set up on the user itself, and remove any categories associated with the user.

    3.  Get the user to log onto a PC that is attached to the domain.

    4.  Clear the active cache by removing the Cache folder from %appdata%\Microsoft\MS Project\12 (or 14)

    5.  Start MSProject and connect to the server.

    6.  Ensure you are connected to the correct server instance (File | Info in Project 2010).

    7.  Then, via PWA, Server Settings, open the enterprise global.


    Let us know how you get on.

  • Thank you very much all for the help.

    I found the reason, becasue I am signing in to the Windows using different account not the Project Server Administrator account, therfore I need to open the Project Client using same administrator account.

    I think MSP2010learning  meant that also.
