The built-in Users group does not have the necessary permissions

The information in this article applies to:

  • Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010

  • Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008 

  • SQL Server 2008

  • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007

  • Servers that host the application tier and SharePoint Products

  • Team Foundation Server Complete Health Check

  • SharePoint Products Health Check

The Best Practices Analyzer tool for Team Foundation Server checks the permissions that are assigned to the built-in group for users who can access Web sites and virtual directories for Team Foundation. An error appears if the group does not have Read, List Folder Contents, and Read & Execute permissions. The error contains the name of the server and the directory path of the Web site or virtual directory.

Without Read & Execute permissions, members of this group might receive unexpected logon challenges and be denied access to the Web site for Team Foundation. To resolve this issue, navigate to the directory that the error specifies, and change the permissions for the group.
