Environment



Windows 2008

SharePoint 2010


Cause



When the Symantec Protection 6.0 for SharePoint Servers Service Account attempts to read or modify a file in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\SharePointEngine folder, the permissions needed are missing and will cause the registration to fail.


Solution



A full solution for this issue is to verify the Symantec Protection 6.0 for SharePoint Servers Service Account used to install the SPSS / Scan Engine product is a member of the Farm Administrators and has full Local Administrator privileges on the Windows Server.

As a workaround navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\SharePointEngine folder and assign the Symantec Protection 6.0 for SharePoint Servers Service Account full Local Administrator permissions.
