I cannot open root site with System Account in SPD. Rest all sub-sites are opening with System Account. When I enter credentials of System Account in SPD to open root site, the credentials window pop-up appears repeatedly.

  • Is the system account set as a site collection admin? Try logging in with a site collection admin account. – Submits Feb 10 '16 at 9:58
  • Yes the System Account is site collection admin. This behavior I am just recently facing otherwise everything was working fine until yesterday. – Zakir HC Feb 10 '16 at 10:47
  • You say it was working fine the day before. To the best of your knowledge, has anything changed at all with SharePoint and/or the underlying infrastructure? Can you open the site by logging in using the SharePoint Farm account? – DRVR Feb 16 '16 at 2:23
