In my SharePoint environment, I have a few seperate web applications with some different admin users. Now a new user I created is added as local admin (needed for Powershell remoting) and farm admin. But for some reason, it cannot read the details of some site collcetions and I don't know why.
For instance: when I open up central admin and log in as this new user, I can browse to the section where you config site collection administrators. I can select a site collection and some info (URL, title, description, etc) is shown as soon as I select one. But some site collections I select and nothing shows; the info section remains empty. When I now press OK, the page reloads (as it normally does), but nothing is selected. Apparantly I don't have rights. But weirdly enough I do have rights to other sites in the same web application.
You'd think that this has something to do with the configured site collection administrators, but it doesn't. Because when I take another farm admin, which also isn't a site collection admin, I do see details and I'm able to change things. So there's some other level of permissions I'm missing apparantly, but I don't know what that could be. Who knows?
