SPout.exe Permissions

  Asked By: Josiah    Date: Jul 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1606

According to the documenation for SPout, you have to be a
Coordinator on the workspace you are trying to export from. I
finally figured out one of the problems I've been having with these
tools. You must have your account by itself set as a Coordinator.

Due to the way we've had to do our security on SPS2001 sites, we
create local groups and add domain accounts to those groups. The
Local Groups are given roles in Sharepoint. We don't have any
accounts by themselves given roles.

SPout has been giving me the error "You don't have Permission to run
this tool" and exiting when I try to export from my 2001 Portals.
My account has Coordinator permission by way of an "SPS Admin" local
group that has Coordinator permission. The documentation is a bit
lacking in that it never tells you that the account you are using
must be given Coordinator permission by itself, it can't belong to a
group with permission.

Can anyone else verify this for me?

I'm glad to hear you're moving ahead. Can you clarify what you mean by:

You must have your account  by itself set  as a Coordinator.
For example, are you saying that your actual account needs to be listed as a Coordinator? ...being a member of a local  group that is a Coordinator is not enough?

You need to check the log in the Diagnostics settings on the Sharepoint Portal Administration page

check the log for errors.

I faced a similar problem and it turned out to be the following.
Database for the previous installation might be still there. try to
delete that DB or give a new name for new installation.
