         I have create MySites for all the users in my Portal programatically like this, I am having a problem now administring the sites. When I go to central Admin and Click on "Site Collections List" and browse all the site collection list when it is getting to personal site, the page is show me an error message with "Error Occured, go back to the page..". Even when I try to ENUM sites using stsadm tool I am getting a message like

    <Site Url="http://xyz/personal/abcdf&quot; Error="User cannot be found.">. I am thinking that because I have not assigned an owner to the site this is happening. Do we have to assign an ower to the Perosnal site like

         PersonalSite.Owner = SPUser….

    when we create the personal site Programatically? Any you please tell me if there is any work around to fix all the sites?
