No PWA admin

Posted on 2009-02-12

How do I create/edit a user that can configure PWA from Sharepoint site?  After a recent restart no one, including the Domian admin appear to have this right.

The domian/administrator password was recently changed.  In addition, project and SQL services that had been run as administrator were changed to another (Administrator) account.  When the Project services were changed back to ADMINISTRATOR, I could no longer access Sharepoint Site Administrator tool.  Changing them back allowed access to the tool but am still unable to change (For instance add web parts) to the PWA site.

Though the password change was some weeks ago this problem appears to have started after Sharepoint farm shutdown and restart.

    You should refer to this TechNet article to properly change your service accounts. If you are able to, do these steps...

    Also, log into your Central Administration site, and under Operations there is a link to update Farm Administrators group. Then under Applications there is a link to update Site Collections Administrators. You can use that second link to add new service/user domain accounts to ensure you are able to login with full access. Then under there, go to Server Settings for PWA and then grant the necessary groups to those users.
