Doesn't seem like all the machines are correctly members of the domain.  The domain admin is automatically added to the local admin group when you add a machine to the domain.  If you cannot access the admin share there may be a problem with domain membership or a GPO that is restricting access.  Check Resultant Policy in AD to see what policy settings may be restricting you from admin shares.

It sounds to me as though the 'Domain Admins' group has been removed from membership of the problematic machine's local Administrators group.

You can use Restricted Groups to force the Domain Admins group back as a member of the Administrators group, which should restore the permissions to network logins.

Wait a while (it takes more than 90 minutes to deploy this GPO -> because GPO is "pop" from client...
and then you can try...
