Permissions for source files in SCCM

Before creating Software Creation packages in SCCM, you need to set up permission on source files. If the permissions are not setup correctly you see this error in “SMS_DISTRIBUTION_MANAGER”

error 2306:The source directory "\\<server>\<share>" for package "xxx00000" does not exist. The operating system reported error 5: Access is denied.

These two articles will give you more information:

How to Remove Plug-ins from vCenter

Some back ground about the issue :

I removed a plugin from Add/remove Programs of vCenter server but still it was showing up in the vSphere client. I was able to  enable/disable it but could not remove it from the list of available plug-ins in Plug-in Manager. This becomes an issue specially when you don’t want people ( vmware admins and non-admins)  to see any such plugin when they  connect to vCenter server from the vSphere client.

To resolve the issue I followed this VMware KB article, which worked like a charm:
