Access Denied on SharePoint Topology Data Collection Timer Job Settings link

Oct 14, 2011 at 1:55 PM


I get a Access Denied on the "SharePoint Topology Data Collection Timer Job Settings" link on the Monitoring page (http://<myservername>/_admin/SharePointFarmInfoTimerJob/SharePointTopologyTimerJob.aspx). I've tried deploying the solution both with the installer and with the PowerShell cmdlets, but without success. The solution seems to be deployed correctly, and the feature is enabled, but I cannot access the configuration settings for the timer job.

My user is farm admin and local admin on the box. The file is there in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\ADMIN\SharePointFarmInfoTimerJob folder. I have no idea why I get this error...

Please advice, thanks!

Same here. I worked around it by logging in to Central Admin as the Farm Account, but that's clearly not an acceptable workaround IMO.
