Access denied error while reading user roles

  Asked By: Seth    Date: Sep 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1663

I am an admin on the box and also Administrator on the SharePoint
Portal server. But while retrieving the user roles from the SPWeb
object, I get the error "Access is denied".

Here is the code :

foreach (SPRole role in SPWEB.Roles)
foreach(SPUser user in role.Users)

Exception is thrown on reading role.Users.

Any idea why this is happening? Since I am an admin I shouldn't be
seeing this error?

I assume it is a web application - If yes check the
application pool it is running under. Run this pool
under your identity and then troubleshoot backwards.

Have u tried impersonating admin  id in the code
i think that should allow u to read the user  names

Not sure, since you're an admin. We solved the problem by creating a web
service that runs on the server  under a privilaged (admin) account, as this was
the only reliable way we could get the data at run-time.

Where is the application being run? OM calls are not remoteable - this code
MUST run on the SPS server.
