Access requests are not enabled

  Asked By: Charmaine    Date: Feb 18    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2330

Hope you can help me with an error saying, "Access denied. You do
not have permission to perform this action or access this resource."
"Access requests are not enabled."

The Senario(s):

I get this error when trying to access the User Information list. I
can create this error by going to my;
1 "People" Area
2 choose a user from my "Personnel List"
3 Choose "My Site Profile:"
4 "View Sharepoint User Information" under "Actions"
5 Choose "Go to User Information List" &
6 Clicking on "Add Users" or "Manage Users Page"

If I go to;
1 "Manage Content"
2 Choose any "list"
3 Choose "Modify Settings & Columns"
4 Choose "Add a new column" (lookup)
5 "Get infortmation from" ("User Information")

Here is the User Information again, and the same issue if I want to
add or manage users. The User information list includes useful
information for folks who haven't created a "MY Site" yet.

My questions are;
1 Can I create a my site for someone who hasen't created a my site
yet (who therefore has no profile)?
2 Where can I enable "Access requests", (what's behide the "Access
requests are not enabled." error)?

I don't know of another way to "prestage" My Sites w/o having the user
create it. Sorry.

However, access  requests are enabled  by default. You can change this
setting at the Site Level (Site Settings | Go to Site Administration |
Manage Access Requests)
OR at the library level (Modify Settings and Columns | Change Permissions
for this Document Library | Manage Request Access).

I assume you can’t add  users going through portal site  settings (Portal – Site settings  – Manage Users). It sounds like you have been blocked from accessing the user  profile database. Is there anyone else in your group that can test access  to see if it is limited to you?

I can add  users from this way. This access  issue affects the other person who should be able to also. He’s a dbo on the profile  db, while I’m a sys admin on the SQL box.

Now that I found where you were taking me, yes user requests  are enabled  by default, which is true in my case. What I really can’t get past is the login dialog prompting me for my username & pwd. when trying to access  "Add” or "Manage Users” in the "User Information” List.

I can get to the add  users or manage users  page by starting off at Home | Site Settings | manage  Security & Additional Settings | Show user  Information & then go to the add users or manage users page.

But I can’t from the 2 scenarios I mentioned earlier?!?!

I am personally stumped. To have access  from one route yet not another doesn’t make sense. Maybe someone else will have an idea. If you don’t get any responses and can’t find anything online, I would suggest calling product support.

A Personal top-level Web could certainly be "pre-staged" using custom
code whenever a new user  is added to Active Directory. Why would this be
a desired capability. It only takes a few seconds for the Web to be
dynamically provisioned real time and then only those that want a
Personal My Site will have one.

How would you "prestage" the personal sites? Impersonate the users  & login?
Is there an explicit method to do this in the Sharepoint Object Model?
