When attempting to create a new TFS 2010 project with aSharePoint portal, I receive:
TF218017: A SharePoint site could not be created for use as the team project portal. The following error ocurred: TF250044: A SharePoint site cannot be created at the following location:
http://svr/sites/DefaultCollection/proj1. The following user account does not have the required permissions in SharePoint Products to create a site at that location: SVR\joe. The user account must have
sufficient permissions to create a sub-site on the following site:
In SharePoint, joe is a member of FarmAdministrators, a user with Full Control and a member of the Site Collection Administrators. In short, in the same groups as the admin account as far as I can tel. If I connect to TFS as admin, rather than joe, the project
creation succeeds, so it is some sort of permissions issue.
This is a single server deployment; bare metal Win Serv 2008 R2, SQL Server 2008, TFS 2010. I installed TFS as Admin, created user account Joe on server and Win 7 client.
