The Deploy Software Updates Wizard completed with errors - Access is Denied

Hello, I am trying to download some updates that were synced up to the SCCM's database from another WSUS server. I am not able to get it done because the wizard fails with the access is denied error. I checked patchdownloader.log file and saw Error code = 5  which means access denied. I tried to change permissions on the "updateservicespackages" folder within the folder, and I have full NTFS permissions for system, administrators, and read only permissions for everyone. Same thing goes for the share permissions. My account is in the administrators group. The only way I can get it to work is by granting full permissions to "everyone", but that cannot be security friendly. Which account is "Deploy Software Updates Wizard" using so that I can properly give it the required rights?

Is your SMS Provider on the site server?

Also, is the share local to the site server or remote?

Everything is installed on one server, including a local share that is used.

Hi,

You could have a look at the thread below. Lucas used ProcMon that shows an access denied with the user which he was using.  Permission via group wasn't enough. Give your user full share/security access and everything works fine.

I did that, and it works now, thanks.

I don't understand though why the group option isn't sufficient, is there a logical explanation to this?

It means that if I got 20 WSUS admins, I need to basicaly have all 20 names to be listed with individualized permissions, it contradicts the whole concept of AD "Grouping", no?
