Cannot Access _layouts on sharepoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been working on our Sharepoint Server with Project Server 2007.  We are using this as a test platform and will probably be purchasing the software and server in the near future.


    Here is the background then onto the problem.  We have 2 distinct forests and had problems getting people in forest1 able to access the server in forest2,  even though we are planning on everyone migrating to forest2 in the coming months the powers that be decided we would not be migrating the test base to the new forest yet.  

    While working out the problem, I somehow locked myself out of being able to use any file in the _layouts directory.  So things like Site, People and Groups, Site Hierachy, Personal Settings & Server Settings all fail with the error File Not found. 


    Any thoughts or questions I would appreciate it.

  • Could just be a simple security issue in IIS.   Double check the rights.

  • Thanks Gary, I checked that couldn't see anything wrong.  Since we have no real data in the system I finally gave up, uninstalled sharepoint, which deleted the entries in IIS and reinstalled, problem resolved.
