Issue
When you open the Client Tools you receive the error message "Only system administrators can perform this action" even though you are logged in as a local administrator.



Cause
This can be caused by the wrong authentication settings being configured in the IIS virtual directory.



Solution


  • Open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager tool

  • Browse to the XIA Automation virtual directory



  • Ensure that "Anonymous Authentication" is disabled, and that only "Windows Authentication" is enabled.
