SharePoint Foundation 2010 SP1 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Std SP1 (Domain Controller) in a simple farm with a single SQL Server 2008 SP1/Windows Server 2008 Std SP2 backend
I realise installing SP on a DC is not advised but I've no alternative.
Trying to run
Get-SPWeb -site [site path] I get the following error:
Get-SPWeb : Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)) At line:1 char:10 + Get-SPWeb <<<< -site [site path] + CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (Microsoft.Share....SPCmdletGetWeb:SPCmdletGetWeb) [Get-SPWeb], UnauthorizedAccessException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPCmdletGetWeb
I am running as SP_admin. To make sure SP_admin has SharePoint_Shell_Access role on the database, I tried to run
Add-SPShellAdmin -username DOMAIN\SP_admin -database [GUID] but then got this error:
Add-SPShellAdmin : You need to have Machine administrator priviliges to run this cmdlet. At line:1 char:17 + Add-SPShellAdmin <<<< -username DOMAIN\SP_admin -database $spcdb + CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (Microsoft.Share...AddSPShellAdmin:SPCmdletAddSPShellAdmin) [Add-SPShellAdmin], SPException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPCmdletAddSPShellAdmin
I have checked:
Why is it complaining I need to run as Machine administrator when the account is in the Administrators group? Could it be to do with it being a DC and AD replacing local groups?
One quick thing to try is to run the SharePoint Management Shell "as Administrator" by right clicking on it in the Start menu, and select "Run as administrator".
If that doesn't work, check your server and see if UAC is on, when I've run into that Machine admin rights error in the past I had to turn off UAC to get past it.
Run as Admin may mitigate it as well, but I didn't try that at the time.
