The local farm is not accessible

Hi,

I'm receiving the error "The local farm is not accessible. Cmdlets with FeatureDependencyId are not registered" when accessing the SharePoint shell console. My account is a SP admin account and has the Sharepoint Shell Admin role on the Sharepoint_Config database, and I am running the shell as an administrator. All the admin accounts are similarly affected.

I am running SharePoint 2013 on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.

All help appreciated.

Thanks,

Rich

Ended up recreating the databases as I never managed to get shell access even though the permissions were correct.

You account needs to be added to the SharePoint_Shell_Access role on the database server. This TechNet article describes exactly how to do that:

Hope that helps

As mentioned in my original post, my account already has this.

It would help if I opened my eyes I suppose. One thing though, as TechNet points out, this can also be granted at the database (content database) level, so that may be something to consider. Take a look at the article for any clues to solve your problem.
