Very strange situation happened in my test environment where the Project Server Administrator is denied access to some objects in the Server Settings in PWA.
In my situation I attempted to access the Active Directory Resource Pool Synchronization setting under the Operational Policies section.
Notice that I am logged in as Administrator (Domain Admins).
And I get the following HTTP 403 Forbidden error message:
“The website declined to show this webpage”
”This website requires you to log in”
What the Heck!! I’m logged in as Administrator which is also a member of the Domain Admins group. This was also the account used to install Project Server 2010.
This happened to a few of my students last month in class in Copenhagen, DK and we found a fix to this problem.
Now as strange as it seems, this is how you fix it:
1. Click the Back button.
2. Click Administrator and then click My Settings.
3. On the User information page, click Close.
And that’s it !!!
Now It’s Fixed
4 On the Server Settings page, click Active Directory Resource Pool Synchronization
Let’s just fill this under:
