Unable to edit third party packages in SCCM


When you edit a third-party package in SCCM, the process fails and the following error appears: 

User does not have administrative privileges.


  • All Patch Manager versions
  • Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)
  • Windows® Server Update Services (WSUS)


  1. In your Windows environment, assign the Active Directory forest to the Patch Manager Management Group.

    This step is required before you can assign your admin account to the EminentWare Enterprise Admins group in a later step.

  2. Log in to the Patch Manager Admin Console.
  3. In the navigation pane, expand Patch Manager System Configuration and select Security and User Management.
  4. Click the Security Roles tab and select EminentWare Enterprise Administrators.
  5. In the Actions pane, click Add. 
  6. Locate and add your current logged-on user to add to the EminentWare Enterprise Administrators Group.

    You can only add an individual Active Directory user account. You cannot add an Active Directory Security Group.

  7. Close the SCCM Administration Console
  8. Relaunch the SCCM Administration Console as an administrator.

    You can now edit third party packages.
