I am logged in as a the SharePoint service account, and I tried to create a new team site of type team site, but I am getting the following error :

This site has not been shared with you.

Although I defined myself as the site collection admin. Any idea what is causing this?

  • As you say, you've defined yourself as the site collection admin, but you're logging as the Sharepoint Service Account - which is not your account.

  • After the site name, add /_layouts/15/settings.aspx and see if you can enter the settings page
