SharePoint 2010 Central Administration Links Missing, Ribbon Buttons Disabled - Fix

After setting up a new SharePoint 2010 farm, I noticed most of the SharePoint 2010 Ribbon buttons including "New" "Extend" buttons are disabled!

SharePoint 2010 Central Administration Ribbon Buttons Disabled

Also few links in SharePoint 2010 Central Administration were missing: E.g.
  • "Manage Services on the Server" link missing under Servers
  • "Configure Incoming E-Mail Settings" under E-mail and Text Messages (SMS).
  • "Perform a Backup" "Restore from a backup" Configure Backup Settings" links are missing in "Farm Backup and Restore"
    SharePoint 2010 Central Administration Links Missing
Root cause: This issue happens when a SharePoint Farm Administrator doesn't has local administrator rights on the SharePoint Server! It also happens when UAC or IE Enhanced Security Configuration (ESC) is enabled!

Fix: Add the user to "Administrators" user group of the all SharePoint Servers. Get Central Administration Ribbon Buttons and Links Disabled!Disable UAC from Control Panel, Disable IE ESC from Server Manager of Windows Server 2008.

In an another case, Fix was: Synced all SharePoint Servers Timezone with AD Domain controller by running "w32tm /resync"

  1. Hi unfortunately I have still got this issue on a previously working dev sp010 farm. So UAC and run-as were never an issue before. Did try the wm32tm /resync on both PDC and SP2010.. With the PDC I had to run a few extra lines to get the successful message ....
