Shaded icons in SharePoint ribbon
Posted on 2013-06-21
I noticed a strange behaviour on two servers which have SP and Project Server 2010 installed. In the Service App Management, the "delete", "manage", "administrators", "Properties", "Publish" and "Permissions" icons are shaded.
I checked the SQL DB rights but my farmadmin have the dbcreator, public, securityadmin and sysadmin roles under Security\Logins\Domain\farmadmin in SQL management studio.
Under Security\Logins\Server Roles I can find my farmadmin account in sysadmin and dbcreator.
In the User Mapping section of farmadmin Login, db_owner and public are checked
The strange point is that in User Mapping, for the farmadmin account, there is no Domain\farmadmin in the User and Default Schema rows where Map is checked but dbo, except of SharePoint_Config and SharePoint_AdminContent where Domain\farmadmin is present.
When I want to chage rights for farmadmin I receive errors (15405 when I want to add the db_datawriter role in farmadmin User Mapping or 15150 when I want to edit the User and Default Schema names unedr farmadmin User Mapping for example), I tried with SQL SA and Windows authentication with the same errors.
EDIT : I created a new SA account with full permissions with these commands in SQLCMD :
CREATE LOGIN [SA2] WITH PASSWORD=N'pass456', DEFAULT_DATABASE=[master], CHECK_EXPIRATION=OFF, CHECK_POLICY=OFF
EXEC master..sp_addsrvrolemember @loginame = N'SA2', @rolename = N'sysadmin'
and added all right except deny ones to farmaccount, the issue is still present. Maybe that the problem is in the SP permissions ? But farmadmin has also all permissions in SP...
Even with the new SA I can't add db_securityadmin role to my DOMAIN\admin user to test, I receive a 15405 error (Cannot use the special principal 'dbo'.)
Which are the exeact rights that I need to fix that issue please ?
Thank you for your help, best regards,
