Restrict Administrators groups privilege

  Asked By: Guy    Date: Jan 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 899

I have a security problem with my Portal. I installed SPS in a
win2000 domain controller, but I want to permit only Special
administrator (etc. Enterprise Admin Group) to gain administrative
access in web folders.

In fact, when I logged on with domain admin accounts, which is
explicitely only have reader permissions in SPS, I still can access
and configure the security settings for SPS web folders. So I just
want to permit only few special administrator, not all of domain

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Anyone who has Admin access on the box where you installed  SPS, has coordinator
rights in SPS. This is working as designed.

I assume you have added people to the sharepoint security  role system - as
readers or authors. Both these groups  cannot change workspace settings.
