Hello, as my question will reveal, I am new to much of this.  I have successfully installed MonoX and it was working fine.  However, I wanted to test the AD integration and I also have that successfully working as I am now only able to login with AD credentials.  However, I seem to have lost the ability to manage the site settings.  When I login as "Administrator", I appear as any typical user without any ability to administer the site.  What do I need to do to make this scenario work?

I successfully followed those instructions.  However, now that I have it working, I am not sure how I regain admin access to the site.  I am unable to login using the build in Admin account and any account from AD doesn't provide me with "Admin" equivalent.  Maybe I am missing some setting in the web.config but how do I identify, for example, administrator from AD as someone who is an admin on the site?

When I attempt to access the admin (http://win2012test/MonoX/Admin/Default.aspx) from the AD Administrator account, I get the attached.  You are not authorized to view this page.

Any advice?

Hi jmoeller,

Can you check app.config and see administrator roles

<add key="AdministratorRoles" value="Administrators" />

and check if your AD user's roles matches administrator roles in config. If not try update AdministratorRoles.
