An error occured when connecting to SharePoint for the selected team project, to prevent any data corruption you will not be able to administrate this project!

I just now downloaded this tool and this is my first foray into TFS at all.

I start the admin tool, connect to the TFServer but no matter what I project I choose, I get the error in the title.

The message box is titled 'Availability of targeted systems' and the error is under 'SharePoint Status' 'Unauthorized'.

Is this a permissions based error?  I am (supposedly) listed as an administrator on the server and am able to connect but the only thing available to me is 'Reporting Services Status'.

What do I need to do here?

I had this same issue when I was a SharePoint farm administrator, but not a site administrator.  I added myself into the site administrator group and the problem went away.

Hey, thanks for the reply!  I had all but given up on any resolution to this....

Where do I add myself as site admin?  Is that at the server level or through VS?  I looked quickly and didn't see 'site administrator' listed anywhere.
