When I click Manage on the Search Service application I get the access denied page.
ULS gives me nothing but:
"Unknown SPRequest error occurred. More information: 0x80070005"
We have upgraded through Search Foundation to Search Server Express to Search Server.
Our main web app is claims based authentication whereas our Central Administration is NTLM.
I found the following post which seems to be the same issue but there doesn't appear to be a solution.
Any advice on hunting down permissions issues of this type would be greatly appreciated.
