Jump to solution

Can you provide/Confirm any requirements re: the AdminStudio Service account.  I have found the following online suggesting the account will require Application Administrator Role in SCCM.

If you want AdminStudio to connect to and publish anything into SCCM, then AdminStudio needs to have access to at least one user account that has the right permissions in SCCM. AdminStudio supports two methods to authenticate with AdminStudio

  1. Windows Authentication
    • The IT user running AdminStudio connects with their own Windows user account to SCCM
  2. Server Authentication
    • They use an existing or set up a new service account and share the credentials out among the IT users

In either user case above, the account provided to AdminStudio will need the Application Administrator Role assignment in SCCM.

Both authentication methods mentioned above are discussed as part of the help article Creating a New Distribution System Connection found in the AdminStudio 2019 R2 help here: https://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/adminstudio2019r2sp1/adminstudio.htm#helplibrary/AMDistSettings_New.htm
