  • If you've logged in with a domain account, logoff from the account, logon with a local account and then try performing the task.

    Further, try searching for the user as NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM, rather than just system only, as NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM points to built-in service account and just SYSTEM will point to a normal user account.

    More information on system account can be found in the following link:

  • Hi All,

    It seemed that my account did not have permission to Add SYSTEM account.

    I asked my team to add me as a local Admin on the desktop for my Domain account and i was able to do it.
