PGP WDE Error code -12198 Not permitted by your administrator

Created: 27 Apr 2012 | 1 comment

Hello,

i am trying to encrypt a disk with PGP 10.2 MP5 (fresh installation) command line (PGPWDE.exe).

instrumenting disk works

pgpwde.exe --disk 0 --instrument

when i try to add the user

pgpwde.exe  --disk 0 --add-user --u MAX --p somepassphrase --admin-authorization

pgpwde.exe  --disk 0 --add-user --u MAX --p somepassphrase

i get the following error

Error code -12198 Not permitted by your administrator

We are using PGP Universal Server and the user who is trying this is member of the WDE-Admin AD group and local Administrator.

How  can i solve this?

Thanks

Make sure Allow encryption boxes are checked.
