Configure Client

When running Configure Client to setup a new client machine an "Access NOT Granted" error occurs.

Access NOT Granted
Access not granted to adams administrators

Error getting access rules for container: Foray Adams Client Key Container

The process does not possess the 'SeSecurityPrivilege' privilege which is required for this operation.

In the above error "adams administrators" could be a different group or user account.

Configure Adams

Accessing Configure Adams > Keys > Refresh Access reports the following errors.


Failed to decrypt RSA key in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\AdamsAdmin\Secrets.config Current user is NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE

Failed to decrypt using provider 'ForayRsaProtectedConfigurationProvider'.

Error message from the provider: The RSA key container could not be opened. (C:\inetpub\wwwroot\AdamsAdmin\Secrets.config)

The RSA key container could not be opened.


The user running Configure Adams or Configure Client doesn't have the SeSecurityPrivilege even when elevating the application to have administrative privileges.

SeSecurityPrivilege is a standard privilege of the Administrators group but it can be removed.
