Installing the trial version on a stand alone version. Successfully deployed to Central Admin- I am able to manage alerts etc, but ran into errors on the deploying to a content site. I wanted to test AlertManager from an enduser perpective to manage their own alerts.
Ran 90% through and then started to roll back. "Attempted to Perform an unauthorized operation" was the error.
I went up to my Site Collection Features and was able to activate the feature for enduser Alert management. However, I am now not sure what the deployment to a content site meant. Can you please clarify? Thanks
This error occurs because the account you are using to install Alert Manager 2009 with does not have access to the content site. Typically, your Farm Administrator account doesn't have access to activate features on content sites unless granted. To correct this issue you can make your Farm Administrator account a Site Collection Administrator of the content site you are deploying Alert Manager 2009 to.
This error is typical in environments where MySites are setup and the user installing Alert Manager does not have access to user's MySites. Deploying to a web application automatically attempts to activate the site collection feature for every site collection and fails when it reaches a site collection containing a MySite that the user does not have access to.
To remedy this, make sure that you have access to each and every MySite site, then redeploy Alert Manager.
