Hi Will,

Here's an example of the code that attempts to access the log:

                EventLog.WriteEntry("MCPermissions.asmx", "Error: "+ex.Message+"; SPContext.Current.Web.Url='"+SPContext.Current.Web.Url+"'");

So I believe it will be trying to access the event log, and it is failing to do that.  Once that issue is resolved, the fact is that it does not even attempt to log anything unless an earlier error occurred.  So there is more than one error involved.

Hi Karl, thanks for the quick response.

I thought this might be the case initially, and have asked the Sharepoint administrator about the user permissions used to install the plugin and he assures me that the permissions are sufficient.  Do you know which log (location, file name) that the plugin tries to write to?

Hi Will,

The issue seems to be around the ability of the MCPermissions plugin to write to the log.  As it was installed, it does not have the ability to do that on your claim-space system.

Usually, we recommend that the plugin be installed by a user that has sufficient permissions to do everything the plugin needs to do.  It does not sound like that is the case here.

I have installed ManifoldCF and have added 2 Sharepoint repositories - one Sharepoint site uses claim space authentication and the other one does not.

manifold seems to have no issue connecting to the non claim space authenticated Sharepoint site but generates this error when trying to connect to the claim space authenticated Sharepoint site:

Connection status: Unknown SharePoint server error accessing site - axis fault = Server, detail = Server was unable to process request. ---> Cannot open log for source 'MCPermissions.asmx'. You may not have write access. ---> Access is denied

Has anybody experienced a similar problem with claim space authenticated Sharepoint sites?

Any help is much appreciated.
