Getting an Unknown error

  Asked By: Jeana    Date: Nov 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1765

I am getting an Unknown Error when trying to access the Advanced
Permissions page in the site collection level. This also happens at the
site level in the same site collection. I have searched for days, but
have not found anything remotely close to the issue I am having. I was
hoping some here could give me some insite.

Sounds like you're having a permission problem. Have you found  anything
in (a) the Windows Application Log, or (b) the SharePoint log files under
the 12 hive? Those are my first two stops when I hit an inscrutable SP

I'd suggest turning up auditing via local security policy editor on the wfe's or
machines hosting the site  giving you the permission error. Turn on Audit
failures on everything, check the 12 logs and windows event logs.

One thing I will recommend is that you should enable error  tracing in web config
file so that you can look the detail error otherwise "Unknown Error" is not
going to tell anything.
Were you restoring your site  as a new site collection? Question is at what
point did you started to get this error ?
