WSS security

  Asked By: Jameson    Date: Mar 28    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 923

Question again:

I have created a site collections called IT with sub sites:

- Security

Setting up security I have made a user an admin to the PMO site.
Shouldn't they be able to get to the PMO site even if they do not
have access to the IT top level site?


Does the user have to have access to the IT site?

Currently users without access to the IT site, but are admins on the
PMO site are being prompted to enter NT Authentication.

-so long as they access  the URL directly /sites/IT/PMO

Wasn't this a recent email string? Run a search in the Yahoo group. I believe
this question  had several reply posts.

They should be able to access  the subsite, but only if they have the exact URL
to the subsite.

Answer #4    Answered By: Nathanial Mcclure     Answered On: Mar 28

The issue is when I am granting the user  admin access  using the WSS
site "Manager Users" and then send the generated email to the end
user. They receive the email with the link to the site  and then they
are not able to access the site.

Any thoughts on the actual security  settings within IIS, SPS, or WSS
that could be causing this problem?

IIS is setup with anonymous access disabled with integrated security
enabled. Again this is at the WSS site level  and I am creating the
sites using the sites  area in SPS "Create Site" in SharePoint Portal

I then create the site and create the sub sites from that site.

If the NT authentication  works, i.e. they have access  after authenticating,
this is an IE issue, not IIS. Local Intranet sites  pass through current user
credentials automatically. Trusted sites require information from an
authentication dialogue box.

But the user  is getting prompted  3
times then being denied access. They are listed in the manage users
as an admin.

Even if they enter  their creditials they cannot gain access, unless
they have access  to the parent site. I do not think sharepoint
works this way, but I could be wrong.

ok. sounds like a client problem. ill assume that you havent tried checking thier local profile or just logging on as them on a different machine (different local profile - hopefully you arent using "roaming profiles").

-make sure that the portal site  is in the trusted sites  list or that its at least passing the current user  credentials to IE.
-go to CONTROL PANEL > USER ACCOUNTS > ADVANCED > MANAGE PASSWORDS and delete everything there.

-that should do it, if not let us know

OK when you refer to profile are your referring to the profile in
the portal? If so they are not in the profile listings.

Another issue:

Under site  Administration I have the following set:

Allow all authenticated users  to access  site?

Assign these users to the following site group:

And the user  still cannot get into the site.

Jusrt a stab ijn the dark but is there anything on the default page for the
WSS that is pulling from another location ythat the individual does not have
access to?

Answer #12    Answered By: Vance Hardin     Answered On: Mar 28

No I basically just built the site  from the template and granted

Answer #13    Answered By: Kareem Flynn     Answered On: Mar 28

Great answer because I do have some end users  doing this. Putting
images on the Portal Area from WSS sites  those causing the end user
to be prompted  for UID and PWD.

Further on this topic, and a word of warning...

If you create a DataView Web Part on a Portal page that gathers content from a restricted WSS site  list and the user  doesn't have access  to the list, the entire portal page will error out.

Answer #15    Answered By: Irvin Foley     Answered On: Mar 28

This is still not the issue. I am creating a site  from the Portal
Site Area > Then creating a site from that site with standard Team

I am scratching my head on this one.

Answer #16    Answered By: Deonte Stein     Answered On: Mar 28

And the answer is: The problem was a custom Web Part Footer on the
SharePoint WSS pages that was causing the Security issues...

Answer #17    Answered By: Stephon Valentine     Answered On: Mar 28

FWIW, if the IT site  is a top-level Web, they will need at least Reader
level access  to use the List and Site template galleries.
