I'm having issue with Get-SPWeb:
I did everything suggested at
but still not working. weird thing is: it worked before. Did MS change something?
the account i use is in Farm Admin group, but not the account used to install sharepoint.
then I found this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263291.aspx
Farm Administrators group Members of the Farm Administrators group have Full Control permissions to and responsibility for all servers in the server farm. Members can perform all administrative tasks in Central Administration for the server or server farm. They can assign administrators to manage service applications, which are instances of shared services. This group does not have access to individual sites or their content.
So, I have to grant user policy for each web app (full read), now get-spweb works fine.
I'm just curious: why farm admin does not have the access to individual sites? kind of weird, isn't it?
Any insight opinions?
