We just upgraded to the lastest version of SolarWinds Patch Manager (188.8.131.52) so that we could take advantage of the 3rd Party Updates Pack which, per communications from SolarWinds, we are now entitled. The upgrade went fine and when I select View Product Licensing from the console I can see that we are indeed licensed for the Third Party Update Pack. However, when I run the Third Party Updates Configuration Wizard I'm getting errors stating that the vendor catalogs cound not be downloaded because access is denied. Here is the detail I get from the failed update synchronization:
Name: EminentWare Update Catalog
Any ideas as to why this might be happening?
Hi Patrick, access to 3rd Party Updates is a two-step process. Licensing is one, and access using a valid website user ID is the other. 'pbolt' has now been granted access.
I am still unable to get this to work. According to your documentation I should be prompted for a valid user ID to the EminentWare Community website when I run the Third Party Updates Configuration Wizard but I am not. When I run the wizard it skips that screen and takes me to the proxy settings screen. I am unable to find anywhere to set this configuration.
The requirement for you to provide a website login in that wizard just changed in the latest version (1.72.xxx.x) that you've installed. It no longer requires one.
Regarding your initial issue ("The catalog could not be read ... Access is Denied") when synchronizing the catalog: The most likely culprit here is Anti-Virus.
Is it possible to temporarily disable that? If not, you may create a temporary exception in your antivirus software for your \temp folder and its subfolders/contents to test that out.
