Environment: Windows Server 2008, Sharepoint (MOSS) 2007, Team Foundation Server 2010
Summary: I have a sharepoint environment that I had to move to a new domain controller without access to the old one. I recreated all of the service accounts and reset the credentials for the services startup, the app pools, the search service, and the databases themselves and analysis, and reporting services. I also added myself as a site collection administrator, and the owner of the web application and the administrator of the web application.
Scenario: I try to go to the dashboard at http://localhost:8080/vsts/DefaultCollection and it gives me an access denied error. However if I go to http://localhost:8080/vsts/DefaultCollection/_lyaouts/user.aspx it opens fine. This makes me think that it is not actually a permissions issue. I checked, and I am listed as the site collection administrator. I also added myself to the policy for the web app with full control. I have checked everywhere I could think of. If anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this I would be very grateful.
