Recently we were trying to connect to SharePoint online site from SharePoint online management shell, but I got an error which says: Connect-SPOService : Current site is not a tenant administration site.
We were providing the credentials of my Office 365 account but still, It was giving the error. And the Office 365 account which we were using is an Office 365 tenant administrator account. So there were no issues regarding permission.
Below is the SharePoint online management shell command:
Connect-SPOService -Url https://onlysharepoint2013.sharepoint.com/ -credential firstname.lastname@example.org
Then I got the below error.
Connect-SPOService : Current site is not a tenant administration site.
At line:1 char:1
+ Connect-SPOService -Url
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Connect-SPOService], ServerException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerException,Microsoft.Online.SharePoint.PowerShell.ConnectSPOService
The error looks like below:
To connect to SharePoint Online site using PowerShell, we need to provide the Sharepoint Online Administration Center site. The SharePoint online admin center site URL will be like below:
https://<your tenant id>-admin.sharepoint.com/
Whenever you will sign up for an Office 365 trial, the Office 365 SharePoint admin site will be created automatically. So the PowerShell command will be like below:
Connect-SPOService -Url https://onlysharepoint2013-admin.sharepoint.com/ -credential email@example.com
Now when you will run the above command the error will not come. You will not receive any error related to Connect-SPOService Current site is not a tenant administration site.
