I am facing a very frustating permission level issue with Sharepoint 2010. First, everything worked as expected up to few days ago.
I have a user on my sharepoint 2010 env (publishing portal) named rjo who is site collection administrator and has also Full Control permission level.
When I execute the Check Permission command from the ribbon I get the following:
Permission levels given to xxxx\rjo
Given through the "xxx Owners" group.
The following factors also affect the level of access for xxx\rjo (xxx\rjo)
Create and change permission levels on the Web site and assign permissions to users and groups.
Create subsites such as team sites, Meeting Workspace sites, and Document Workspace sites.
etc.. Seems like all the individual permissions are set to deny.
If I remove the user rjo from the Full Control permission level, all the deny permissions disappear. I have tried creating a brand new permission level with Allow permission on al items but I still get the deny when I check the permissions. Notice that this happens for all the users.
Does anyone experienced a similar issue? I suspect some kind of Windows update to have messed up the permissions but I cannot find a way to get proper permissions to my users.
