Security Access Problems

  Asked By: Aditi    Date: Aug 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 650

We have a web part on the home page of SharePoint that we only want specific
people to see. Being a web part, SharePoint will only allow you to Deny people
instead of Allow.

So, under Portal in the client tool, I right click and bring up the properties
of that web part. Then I go to the security tab.

We have 1800+ accounts that we first deny. Then we remove about 60 accounts.
Those accounts that we remove are accounts we want to see the web part.

For some reason SharePoint still denies those accounts the specific web part.
This is after we Apply the changes.

We are now going to make an NT login group that has all accounts minus the 60 to
see if security will then work.

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening. Is there a security account
limit to deny?

There's an article at MSD2D that really really really sounds like it
addresses what you're talking about. Check it out.


It talks about caching and stuff on security  settings. It might not be what
you're looking for, but then again... it might.

I tried that and it didn't work. Now, I can't even delete the web
part. If I go through the browser to Content / XxWebPartxX / and
click on the link I get a HTTP 500 - Interanl Server error

If I try and use the Client tools, an error box appears

"You do not have permission to delete the file or folder, or there are
network problems  preventing authentication from the server."

Nice and vague statement.

I have coordinator access  but that doesn't seem to work. Also, this
is a web  part that we don't want everyone to see yet.
