In this PowerShell SharePoint tutorial, we will discuss how to solve the error, Connect-SPOService : Current site is not a tenant administration site. Recently, I was working with PowerShell SharePoint and trying to connect to SharePoint online site from SharePoint online management shell, but I got an error that 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. But still, the current site is not a tenant administration site error was coming.

Below is the SharePoint online management shell command:
Connect-SPOService -Url https://onlysharepoint2013.sharepoint.com/ -credential [email protected]
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:
Connect-SPOService : Current site is not a tenant administration site
To connect to the SharePoint Online site using PowerShell, we need to provide the Sharepoint Online Administration Center site URL. 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 protected]
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.
Hope this will be helpful to solve an error Connect-SPOService : Current site is not a tenant administration site in SharePoint Online Office 365.
