The person who installed and managed our Sharepoint environment (2007) left the company a few months back. We thought we had the appropriate access for all the sharepoint services, but have found 1 area we can not access.
SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration, under
Shared Services Administration, there is a link for a custom named Shared Services instance. This link goes to http://< server_name >/ssp/admin. No
Active Directory account that we have tried has access to this page. Additionally, we tried the local admin account on the server. No dice.
We have full admin access to the Sharepoint database though. Is there a query we can run to determine who has access to this page?
