    Hi Michelle,


    Thanks for the time on the call. To document the resolution, the issue was that the user did not have WRITE permissions on the config folder and hence all the files under the config could not be modified. Once the permissions were applied, the auth_config.yml could be modified.


    Thanks!

    Great, thanks Mansi =) The strange thing is that none of my directories had permission changes since 3.3 and I never had these issues. Only since 3.4. Also, I feel a little funny granting full permission to SD\Users but since this folder isn't shared over the network its not such an issue. thanks again. (fix show in screenshot)

    You don't need to necessarily change the perrmissions. An alternative is to use the context menu to open Notepad (or the editor of your choice) using "Run as Administrator". This preserves the operational configuration while letting you jump in and edit stuff. This is particularly useful (and recommended) in Windows system folders.

    mmm.... Mark thats a bit strange. I was remote desktop'ing onto the server as the SD network administrator. Normal SD users do not have access to the server via remote desktop. I really want to say this is a 3.4 stangeness as I never had it with 3.3. But I suppose if I'm the only one having this problem it must just be me having done something strange this time around.

    I might be wrong, but I believe that my experience has been that even when logged in as a domain admin one still needs to contend with he UAC for some things. For this I'm speculating that you installed Mingle using a domain admin account, so Windows is enforcing the strictest possible security on the Mingle directory and demanding everyone "runs as administrator", even the admin account. That's pure speculation though.

    Thanks Mark, I did exactly that - installed mingle as domain admin account. How funny of windows wanting the admin account to "run as administrator" I mean what else would I be running as. ha ha. Anyhow, thanks Mark for your help (once again). :)
