Cannot finish configuring TrainingManagement

Apr 1, 2009 at 2:44 PM
Following the steps in the documentation titled like "To configure the Training Management application and create the users" Unfortunately I cannot configure the Contosoe Employees and the Contoso Manager Groups, as although being logged in with an account having full access permissions, I'm experiencing the annoying message "You do not have permission to view the membership of the group." Therefore I cannot modify/add the spgemployee and the spgmanager users to these groups. Thank you in advance for any help on this topic.

At what point are you experiencing that error message?  When you click on groups?  Or when you click on a group like "Contoso Employees"?  Does this happen only with the Constoso groups, or also with standard groups like "SharePoint Members"?  When you say that you are logged in with an account having full access permissions, what do you mean - are you logged on as an administrator?

I just re-ran through the process using the free downloadable wss VM image at  I'm unable to reproduce the error.  I ran the process as an administrator.
