I need to set up a SharePoint system in my work place.
The administrator installed SharePoint server 2010 on a Windows server 2008 R2 virtual machine with his "domain-admin" permission and gave my username a "local-admin" permission.
I then installed sharePoint Designer 2010 on that virtual machine but when I try to create a New Blank Web Site I get a "Windows Security" popup which asks for my user/pass.
After I give them it asks for them again repeatedly. If I cancel the popup I get a message:
"This web site must be created on a server that is running Microsoft SharePoint Foundation. Please choose another location."
But when I try to create the site with the administrator's user (which has domain-admin" permission I succeed.
I also installed SP Designer on my local machine but I only get the same message "This web site must...".
How can I make it work with my user?
