Access Denied for SharePoint Site Owner

Posted by namwar on February 24, 2010


There are times when SharePoint can even deny the Site Owner to access his/her site. There are numerous reasons behind this issue but I just want to give you the solution. So here it is:

Step 1:

Run following stsadm command after replacing place holders, mentioned in <>, by actual values:

stsadm -o siteowner -url <YourSiteUrl> -ownerlogin <Domain\AnyValidUser>

 Step 2:

Run following stsadm command after replacing place holders, mentioned in <>, by actual values:

stsadm -o siteowner -url <YourSiteUrl> -ownerlogin <Domain\SiteOwnerLogin>

Thats it. Now access the site by Site Owner user and you will be allowed.
