Unable to access administrative shares remotely
Posted on 2010-09-14
I am trying to access the admin shares on about 10 IBM Thinkpads that are on the network and am unable to do so. I can access these shares on other brands of desktops and laptops on the network, just not on any of the IBM systems.
I get \\comp\admin$ is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
Not enough server storage is available to process this command.
I am using a domain admin account to connect to the share and have used another admin account with no luck. Domain admin group is in the local administrator group on the computers along with the other account that I have tried using to access the shares.
Another thought I just had was to create a normal share folder and I get the same error trying to access that. I can however access printers and scheduled tasks, but not any shared folders.
File and Printer sharing is turned on, firewall is disabled, I also check ThinkVantage Access connections and made sure file sharing was not disabled there and it is not. This error is there with and without simple file sharing turned on.
