The sharing permissions of the ION_Ent share folder are not set properly on the Primary server
To resolve the issue, please follow the below steps:
1. On the primary Ion Enterprise/PME machine navigate to the folder Ion Enterprise/Power Monitoring Expert folder. The paths are as below:
For Ion Enterprise 5.x/6.x machines : ..\Program Files\Schneider Electric\
For SPM7.x/PME7.2.x/PME4DC7.2.x/PME4HC7.2.x/PME8 (all editions) : ...\Program Files (x86)\Schneider Electric\
2. Right click on Ion Enterprise/Power Monitoring Expert folder and go to properties and then click on tab labeled "Sharing"
3. Click on "Advanced Sharing" which will open a new window. Click on permissions
4. In the share Permissions tab, select Everyone on the top and provide permission to "change" by checking the box to Allow.
All share permissions are automatically set to the Read permission for the Everyone group; this includes the ION Enterprise share (ION_Ent).
A user must configure the ION_Ent share to the Change permission only if installing Secondary Servers on the network or if installing Clients
that require more than just Read permissions (e.g., A client user need to Modify Vista diagrams, update device templates etc)
