Admin rights to all of SharePoint

  Asked By: Josiah    Date: Apr 15    Category: MOSS    Views: 5311

we are just starting out
with MOSS and we're a bit lost.

I did the installation so I have rights to everything. I've granted two
others Full Control at the top level and made them Farm administrators
as well but they keep hitting pages all over the place where they don't
have any rights at all. I keep going into those sections and giving
them full control but it doesn't seem to cascade down from there.

Where else am I supposed to grant them rights so that they become
administrators on everything like I am.

Site Collections are the basic security boundaries in SharePoint. You
will need to give them Full Control at the top  level site of each site
collection you create.

do I understand you to say that every time
we create another site, I have to go in and give Full control? And then
for every site that gets created under those, I have to go in again?
The thing is, we only have the top  level portal so far and one team site
and I have to go in and give Full control  for every different admin
page they go to on the top portal and every individual page of the team
site. They keep getting denied access.

I guess I'm panicking here. In my head I'm seeing worst case scenario:
I get hit by a bus and my guys have to reinstall the entire portal from
scratch so someone else becomes an administrator.

There must be somewhere that I could grant  global rights  to two other

Go to Central Admin > Application Management > Policy for Web Application.

Create a new Policy that gives the group of users Full Control.
