Migrating a driver package fails with the SCCM Provider is missing read, write, or delete privilege error
This article helps you resolve an issue where you can't migrate a driver package due to missing privileges for the driver package source path.
Original product version: Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager

While attempting to migrate a System Center Configuration Manager 2007 driver package to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, the action fails and the following error is shown in the migmctrl.log file:
SCCM Provider is missing read, write, or delete privilege for the driver package source path
This problem can occur if the Configuration Manager Provider system has insufficient permissions on the driver package source path (NTFS or Share permissions).
Grant the Configuration Manager Provider system full control permissions on the driver package source path.
During migration, the error is only shown for driver packages because Migration Manager needs to process some content in the source path, so it fails during the migration itself. If you migrate a regular software package, it succeeds no matter whether the destination site has access to the source path or not, but later, SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER (distmgr.log) which starts up to process this package fails due to insufficient permissions on the package source path.
