Site Collection administrator rights are required issue

Sep 9, 2015 at 4:14 PM
Hi Guys,
I'm trying to run this software on my Sharepoint server, but getting this message:
"Site Collection administrator rights are required to run this utility on a site"
I verified and I am a Site Collection administrator.
Please advice what can be a problem here.

I am also having this problem. Does anyone know how to fix it?

I figured out this issue.

I was initially looking under Central Administration-->Application Management-->Site Collection Administrators and I verified that the user I was running the Permission Analyzer tool was listed here.

However, when I went to the Root site-->Site Settings-->Site Collection Administrators there were different users listed here and I was not in the list. After getting added to this list the Permission Analyzer tool worked.
