Problem with Network Drive Mapping on Windows 2000 Servers.

I have two servers in a remote environment. I will call them Server1 and Server2 for namesake. I am able to Remote Desktop into both the servers successfully. However, when I want to map a network drive on Server1, through my local machine I am able to do that (for example: \\Server1\c$). When it comes to mapping the 'C' drive on Server2, I am not able to do it (to \\Server2\c$). I get the error message as "The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occured: The specified server cannot perform the requested operation". Just for reference, the C drives on both Server1 and Server2 have the same sharing permissions and security as well. The administrator username and the password are also the same for both the servers.

Please help.
