Site Collections Grayed-Out and "Locked"


All of the sites beneath a Web application in the SharePoint Hierarchy are grayed-out and are labeled "Locked."

Possible Reason

You added one or more content database to an existing Web application, but the ControlPoint Service Account was not granted access to it.


Grant the ControlPoint Service Account access to the content database(s) within the Web application(s).


"A Script on the Page is Causing Internet Explorer to Run Slowly..."


A script on the page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly.  Stop running this script?

Possible Resolutions

If you encounter this message when trying to expand a node in the left navigation pane,  click [Yes] then re-open the node.  

Note that, once child items within a node are loaded, they are cached and are not reloaded:

·for the remainder of your ControlPoint session


·until the SharePoint Hierarchy has been refreshed.

ControlPoint Application Administrators may also find that decreasing the number of child items that display within a subfolder improves performance, especially if it has been set higher than the default value.  (The more items there are within a subfolder, the more time it will take for them to load.)

You may also be able to alleviate the issue by adjusting certain Internet Explorer configuration settings. Quest Support can provide more detail.


When Launched from a Server That Has IE Enhanced Security Configuration Enabled, ControlPoint Fails to Launch Properly


When you launch ControlPoint from a server for which IE Enhanced Security Configuration (IE ESC) is turned on and you are using Internet Explorer 10 or 11 as your browser, the application fails to launch properly .


In the Server Manager, make sure IE Enhanced Security Configuration (IE ESC) is off.

Number of Child Objects Specified for an Object in the SharePoint Hierarchy Doesn't Match Number Displayed


When you expand a Web application or site collection in the SharePoint Hierarchy, the number of child objects you see is fewer than the number that appears in parentheses.


ControlPoint is security-trimmed to enforce SharePoint permissions.  The number in parentheses beside an object represents all child objects.  However, the objects that you actually sees depends on your SharePoint permissions.  See ControlPoint Security in the ControlPoint User's Guide.
