I am trying to add a new user and set their permissions in Photos but I keep getting the same error, "Unable to perform this operation because the network connection is unstable or the system is busy. Please try again later." I also get this if I try to change permissions for any already existing users.

There are no subnet or ip conflicts. I have tried different browsers and computers. There has been no recent network changes and everything else works fine. I can access everything and so can any existing users that had permissions previously assigned.

I have been trying to figure this out for about a week and I cannot find this exact issue on this or any other forum and have exhausted my limited abilities on trouble shooting this problem. I would really appreciate any help or insight to this problem.
