Sharepoint 2010 activate solution disabled even with Farm Admin
Posted on 2013-01-21
I am having an issue with a SharePoint Server 2010 enviroment I have inherited. The sandbox is turned on but the activate/deactive buttons for solutions are greyed out, even to Farm Admin accounts.
I did do Google searches and have checked the following :
All servers have the User Code Host service started and running (even tried to restart them).
Each server has the Sandboxed Code Service started in Central Admin (tried restarting them too).
I try my account, as a Farm Admin, and I can upload a solution (.wsp) but if I don't opt to activate it at the same time as upload, I never can since the activate/deactivate buttons are greyed out.
If I DO opt to Activate it during upload, it shows as activated, but when I go to activate the Feature, I get an access denied!
I've tried this with my farm admin account AND the system account with the same results.
What am I missing is there some other securities the previous SP admins turned on? Getting the access denied on the system account or on my account as a Farm Admin is a little unsettlingly.
Thanks for any help!
