Software Administration access denied

Hello Community,

when I try to start the "Software Administration Wizard" i get an Access denied message:

Unable to start Software administration.

User <USERNAME> on host <HOSTNAME> was denied Access to Software Distribution on <HOSTNAME>


I can Access the wizard when i use the default administration user account.. But I fail when using my own account that is console user, console Security Administrator, console Application Administrator and added to the user Groups: Application Administrators and Security Administrators by using:

user=<USERNAME>, host=<HOSTNAME>

I am using Networker 8.2.2.0 Build 926. NMC and Networker Server are located on the same virtual Maschine running MS Windows 2012 R2

I do not know where to look further. Anyone got an idea?

Regards,

Patric

Re: Software Administration access denied

Assuming that you account shall have the same rights as THE administrator, I would add this account in NMC, not in the NW Admin window. This makes the whole configuration much easier.

Re: Software Administration access denied

Hi,

the account is added under NMC / User and Roles / Users. One interesting beahvior is, that i may edit the networker Server configuration with my own account.

I am beginning to think that this error does not have to do with the user accounts and permissions they have but may be located elsewhere.
