The credentials which were supplied was of the local administrator of the system where the admin share exists.

Can you check the security properties of that drive, perhaps there is a limit to connections allowed...?

I'd say you are trying to login to the server with two different credentials.

If you want to access that adminstrative share you will need to be logged in as the owner of that share.

do you already have a drive mapped to the remote machine?  You can get this error if you have a connection to the machine already, with different credentials.  A reboot often clears odd drive mapping issues.

What is the clause for the errors?

It is normally caused by there is any existing connection made for the shares from another computer using different set of credentials.

How to fix?

1. In the host computer, find out and record the existing network connections to and from your computer by the command below.
    net use

2. In the host computer, disconnect all connections by the command below.
    net use * /delete

3. In the client computer, re-connect the network share just like the first time you connect to the host computer.

You need File and Printer sharing enabled on the remote computer and the classical sharing model needs to be on.
To turmp on the classical sharing model:
Run Windows Explorer, on Tools menu open Folder Options, on the View tab uncheck the last item (Use simple file sharing (recommended).
That is, the recommended way here is to unchecked, not to check.

Thanks for all your suggestions. I am able to access the share after I cleared the existing network mappings to the machine.
