Many technical documents lists solutions that include changing the comstore using the command:
ccnfcmda -cmd SetParameterValue -ps

When this is attempted, the following error is returned:

This happens regardless of administration rights, even local administrator is prompted with the same error.


This typically occurs if the actual configuration policy (applied to the computer that the ccnfcmda command is attempted on) specifies that the parameter to modify (listed behind the -pn keyword) is set to centrally managed rather than locally managed.
Parameters that are centrally managed cannot be changed using the ccnfcmda command.

To deal with this, either:

  1. Change the parameter in configuration policy and apply it to the workstation/server of choice (OR)
  2. Change the parameter to "locally managed", apply the policy after which it will be possible to change the parameter using the ccnfcmda command.
