What database do customizations to a permission level go into in Sharepoint? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Or are they kept somewhere in the 12 hive?

    P.S.

    This article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/970784 describes sort of what we are seeing.

    Our situation is that the farm administrators group cannot see or do things you would expect them to see or do. Such as viewing and changing list settings, group settings, and running content deplyment jobs.

    This broke suddenly and seemingly without provocation.

    I am wondering if the permmask field is not being correctly applied for the farm administrators group. Not sure how all that works but it seems to be what is happening.

  • Hi Lalewicz,

     

    From your description, I understand that Farm administrators have no access to site content by default; they must take ownership of site collections to view any content. They can do this by adding themselves as site collection administrators.

     

    In order to do further research, Would you please let me know whether the farm administrator has been added as the site collection administrators or site administrators?

     

    About the article in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/970784, the KB970784 is for users with full control permission on a list item cannot see “edit, manage permission…”

     

    Also, there is an article about Permissions for site collection administrators, for more information, please refer to

     http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/permissions-for-site-collection-administrators-HA101943260.aspx#_Toc270077328

     

    Best Regards,

    Lisa

  • Hi,

    Thanks to share your post.

    For the issue, have you fix the converted view, Open the page which is converted to XSLT view, replace ddwrt:CurrentRights() with @PermMask in SharePoint Designer 2007 code view following the link that you have post? Do it works?

    If this doesn’t work, please go to the central administration-> people and groups-> change group settings to check whether this group has only read permission in the section “give group permission to this site”.

    Hope this could help you!

  • Actually in our case our server threw an out of memory error during a content deployment and it left the CA site in a locked status. We ended up running the stsadm command to unlock the site and it was business as usual. It was just one of those one in a million weird things. However that is the sort of thing it is good to see a fix for on these forums. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262811(office.12).aspx
