HI after recent SharePoint 2013 Cumulative updates installed in production farm authenticated users those users are owner permissions in the site collection and site collection administrators not able to change some site settings for example below page. but these users do not have SharePoint admin user permissions i.e local administrator in WFE servers.

_layouts/15/AreaTemplateSettings.aspx _layouts/15/ChangeSiteMasterPage.aspx


from the above article, I added permissions on the bin directory for authenticated users.

  • Have you checked the ULS logs, may be clue over there? did you add the permission on all WFEs? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Oct 1 '18 at 13:00
  • if i make this user local administrator in wfe server he can able to change settings of site – adilahmed Oct 2 '18 at 11:47
  • this is not acceptable, as user does not required admin rights on server...did you run the config wizard after the cu? also check the status of the databases? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Oct 2 '18 at 14:00
