Sorry, this site has not been shared with you RRS feed

  • Hi

    I have installed SharePoint on a Windows 2012 r2 server (a domain controller) in an Active Directory domain.

    I have created a site and populated the documents section with folders and sub-folders and have uploaded files.I created two global security groups in Active Directory: sharepointreadonly (assigned to Site Visitors) and sharepointedit (assigned to Site Members). I populated each group accordingly - sharepointreadonly contains 'domain users', sharepointedit contains 5 user accounts.

    I have used the Share command near the right-hand side of the 'ribbon' on the SharePoint site to grant these groups access to the site.

    The problem is that even though staff have been made members of the groups they are getting the error message. I have used the permissions section to test individual staff accounts and it shows whether they have edit rights or simple viewing rights. Even after restarting their PC's they still receive the same error message.

    Can someone help me fix this, please?

    Thanks

  • OK, this is fixed.

    If I share the site directly to a built-in AD group such as Domain Users or share it to specific user accounts staff can access the site. When I create a custom group and populate it with user accounts or built-in groups access is denied.

    Weird! There's obviously something very strange going on here.

  • SharePoint 2013 does not support being installed on a Domain Controller. Move SharePoint to another server that isn't a DC and see if the issue persists.

  • Thanks - I am aware of this, but we do not have the resources to move the installation to another server.

  • It'll be difficult to troubleshoot as you'll run into various issues like this and there is no official guidance/resolution.

  • You'll need to start off by monitoring the ULS logs while a user is logging in. You may want to set the ULS to Verbose prior to testing. Capture that log file and post it on OneDrive to share it here.

  • Hi

    I agree with Trevor

    Activate Hyper-V feature on your server, and install another virtual machines to be compliant
