Hello All

I have configured SBS 2003 to allow RWW and OWA, I can access both these services within my LAN or externally on sub.mydomain.com.

My trouble is with http://companyweb when I enter this into a browser, the page loads up but with the following error

Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.
Access requests are not enabled.
Troubleshoot issues with Windows SharePoint Services.  

Could anyone point me in the right direction here? it was working yeserday so i'm sure its something I have done within IIS.

Best Regards
Bryn

In which case this is an error with the permissions for all users,

The only thing that I can reccomend off the top of my head would be to call Microsoft and they will deal with it remotely. Then you should have the smallest amount of hassle plus they know what they are doing so it will get sorted quickly.

Let me know your outcome.

err thanks..but I'm sure this can be fixed without calling Microsoft, I'll keep digging away at it.

SharePoint was setup with a service account, if you know which service account was used and its password, you can login to sharepoint with thos credentials.  Once you do that, you can give the appropriate access to yourself within SharePoint.

Also, have you tried access central administration?  If you have access to that you, there is another way to gain access to the site.

Loading up http://companyweb gives me a access denied error, there is no login prompt. I'm not sure I understand what you mean, access central administration. forgive my ignorance, I'm a newbie!

Okay, do you have access to the server SharePoint is installed on?  If you do, click start, click administrative tools, and then click SharePoint Central Administration.  This is the area that controls all of SharePoint.

Okay, good.  Click the Operations Tab, then find the Security Configuration section, look for the link called "Update farm administrator's group,"  and click on it.  Here you can add a user or group that will be the administrator of SharePoint.  After you have made your changes, see if you can get to the site.

when i load the central administration, there is no operations tab, there is a security configuration list where you can set the Sharepoint administration group, the default is

MYDOMAIN\SPS SP Admins

still no access even though my user account is a Sharepoint admin

Got it solved, had to check the box, "integrated Windows Authentication" under the Authentication and access control option within the companyweb properties in IIS.

Good, that should have already been done during the install.  Glad you figured it out.
