SMSINST: No Error When Overwriting Files Without Rights

Article ID: 171080

  • Microsoft Systems Management Server 1.0 Standard Edition

This article was previously published under Q171080


When a user attempts an installation to overwrite existing files that he or she does not have write permissions to, the Systems Management Server Installer does not fail or notify the user; it attempts to do a synchronous system shutdown.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Systems Management Server Installer version 1.0. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
