Permission on workspace level not working

  Asked By: Pauline    Date: Nov 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1427

I've got a Sharepoint server, with a production workspace and some testing
workspaces. I needed to add a new user as a coordinator of the production
workspace and so I made the changes; but while the administrative console of
Sharepoint portal server shows the user as a coordinator of the workspace, the
user is still a plain reader and when he opens his browser and connects to the
dashboard site the links " Contents", "Layout" and "Settings" won't show up
unless I add the user to the server Administrators group. But even in this case
things don't work correctly. For instance the user (that is a coordinator)
cannot create a category and every time he tries to accomplish that task,he
receives the message "unable to create the folder. error 0x80004005.Unspecified
If I add the same user as a coordinator for another workspace (on the same
server) everything works fine.
The client machine the new coordinator logs on, is a Windows XP PC with Office
XP installed and hence with SPS client software installed. If an older
coordinator logs on the same machine everything works fine and so is not a
client machine problem.
This sounds to me as a problem with the production workspace that at some point
stopped working correctly and not with Sharepoint itself, but I don't know where
to look for some clue.
I tried restarting IIS and also flashing the application cache from the
management dashboard, without resolving the problem.
