I am using SP2013 single server dev environment. I use following scripts for creating web application and site collection. but when I browse to it, it says this site has not been shared with you. I am Administrator and logged on as Administrator and cleaned all cache services.

$appPoolAccount = "dev\sp_service"
New-SPWebApplication -ApplicationPool $appPool -ApplicationPoolAccount $appPoolAccount -Name $name -DatabaseName $dataBaseName -Url $url -Port $port -HostHeader $hostHeader -AuthenticationMethod "NTLM"

$domainAnduser = "dev\Administrator"
New-SPSite -Url $url -OwnerAlias $domainAnduser -Name $name -Template $template -Language 1033

It works if I do all above via CA.

If your web application is in Claims mode (uses Claims based authentication, CBA), you need to grant permission for username that is in claims format, like i:0#.w|dev\administrator. More info here.

  • Thank you, why it works when you create the web app and sc from CA?

  • Because when your doing it from CA you resolve the inputted login names (sharepoint maps your input to an existing ad user) Commented Mar 21, 2013 at 12:50
