How can I resolve the error 259?

Answer:

This is the error 259 message text:

Ad hoc updates to system catalogs are not enabled. The system administrator
must reconfigure SQL Server to allow this.
You will get the error 259 when you tried to modify the system catalogs directly while the allow updates system configuration option is set to 0. To work around the error 259, you should set the allow updates option to 1 by using the sp_configure system stored procedure.
