Shaded icons in SharePoint ribbon

Hi Experts,

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 :
USE [master]
GO
CREATE LOGIN [SA2] WITH PASSWORD=N'pass456', DEFAULT_DATABASE=[master], CHECK_EXPIRATION=OFF, CHECK_POLICY=OFF
GO
EXEC master..sp_addsrvrolemember @loginame = N'SA2', @rolename = N'sysadmin'
GO
EXIT
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,

Hi,

Make sure you are local machine's Administrators group.

Also double check you farmadmin user account available in Farm Administrators Group in SP Central Admin site.

Also your farmadmin user account should be available in SQL server & also SQL Server's local Administrators group.

Also give permission in IIS Apps pool.

Let me know if any issue.

Thanks,

Hi,

farmadmin is local machine's administrator, member of SP Admin group in central admin site, identity of SP Central admin V4 pool and another SID pool (by the way, which is the command to check the pool name when the is only the SID in IIS ?).

farmadmin account is also member of all SQL local groups for that SQL instance (.\PROJECT) and have the db_creator, db_owner, public, securityadmin and sysadmin roles.

The problem persist.

Help !
