Patch Deployment Fails When C:\ Is Shared On Target Machines

Version 7



    The purpose of this document is to outline a solution to resolve this error.




    • Deploying patches to a target machine fails.
    • ST.Protect.managed log shows: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path '\\IPAdress\ShareName\Windows\ProPatches\Staged\2015-12-04-T-17-21-00' is denied.



    There is a defect in Protect 9.2.x causing Protect to attempt to use the share folder instead of C$.  The account used in the scan/deployment doesn't have sufficient permissions on the C:\ share.



    This issue is corrected in Protect 9.2 build 5046.
