FIX: Project Server 2010 Administrator Denied Access

Posted on July 17, 2012 by - 8,489 views

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 Smile


4 On the Server Settings page, click Active Directory Resource Pool Synchronization



Let’s just fill this under:

Strange But True  Winking smile
