Cannot Delete Portal Area

  Asked By: Melissa    Date: Mar 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 830

I created an area at the Portal level. But when I go into the portal structure
to delete it, I get this error message:

The current operation could not be completed. Please try again or consult your
system administrator.

An error has occurred in the portal site. Contact the portal site
administrator for assistance.

How can I delete this area?

You do not have the necessary right to delete  it. Are you the portal
administrator? If not ask the administrator  to delete the are for you. If you
are the portal  administrator, there might be a problem with your domain account
or with your rights on the portal.

If you are an administrator of the portal, ask a member of your team to remove
your administrator rights , remove you from the portal and to add you again with
the admin rights.

It usually solves the problem.

You must have administrator  rights for that area  or for the whole portal. If it
still does not work, try to make the changes from the server. Log on that
front-end server that holds the portal  and delete  the area from there.

It is definetely a problem with you rights level!
