SCCM patches to workgroup servers always failed, why?

This is a newly-setup MS SCCM 2012 r2 server. There is only one SCCM site server with all the site system roles on it. Recently, I managed to push down/manually installed client agent to about 200 sets of systems. 170 sets are domain systems, and 30 sets are standalone (or workgroup) servers. I setup software update point and sync with WSUS, all the updates are ready.

Now, after setting up the SOftware updates group, and deploy; However, attempt to push down patches to those standalone/workgroup servers always ended up error: access is denied. Do I miss up any permissions? Please help.

Appreciate for your help.

In Monitoring workspace, see the status:

 Status: Failed to download patche(s)
 Error code: 0x80070005
 Error description: access is denied
Are you pushing those updates down as an administrator? Do you have administrative privileges on those servers you are pushing the updates to?

Hi Dew_associates,

Yes, I have all the workgroup servers' local admininistrative rights.

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

Hi Dew_associates,

I recalled that I have to connect to the workgroup server\admin$, and type in the user account and password before manually setup the client agent.
You have missed a setting somewhere

Please enlighten...
I can't enlighten you without knowing how you set up the domain.

Given that you haven't provided a lot of information, I'll presume that you are getting this error while either downloading or updating apps in Windows store, which indicates that you do not have proper permission to either (A) the folder in which all apps are stored or (B) the folder you are trying to push the updates to. As a test case, chose one machine/

Navigate to C: > users > Your User name here > App Data (Its a hidden folder, First show Hidden Folders) > Local > Packages.


 Open Run and Paste this "C:\Users\Your Username Here\AppData\Local" and hit Enter.

Make sure you Replace "Your Username Here" with your actual username in the above command.

Now right click on Packages and select Properties. Now Click on Advance and Give Full permission to all the users Specially the one you are signed in with in Windows. Once that is done, Click on Apply and then OK.

Hi Dew_associates,

I did the following changes:

a. change the permissions of \\SCCM_Server\UpdateServicesPackages so as Everyone got full access
b. On administration workspace, site > Software distribution > Network access account; change to domain\administration from "computer account" for full control
