My manager decided today he wants to be a farm admin on the Sharepoit 2010 because he wants to look at everyones permissions.  So I made him a farm admin.  He has all of the permissions I have.  But he still is denied when he tries to check the membership and permissions of the site.  I don't know what to do.  Please help.

Hello,

As a farm admin he does not necessarily have the permissions required to see group members. Some groups may be set up so that just the group members can view group members.

group settings
To override that you need to make him a site collection admin.

In each site collection go to the site settings and add his name to the Site collection administrators.

 site settings
After that, he will be able to see members of all groups.

cheers, teylyn

As I wrote above:

>> In each site collection go to the site settings

Where are you looking? You need to go to the root site collection and open the site settings. If you don't see that option, you're on a site, not a site collection.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

If you are in a site, you should see this (but only if you are a site collection admin yourself):

He only needs Farm Admin if he is going to be doing configuration work on the SharePoint Farm.

My recommendation would be to take him out of the Farm Admin group, and create a User Policy at the Web Application level, and grant him Full Access:

This will essentially give him "Owner" rights on every site within the web application. He should be able to see security rights then.
