not able to backup to network folder

I am running the command:
BACKUP DATABASE [TRACKER] TO  DISK = '\\POSRANC011\G$\TRACKER_Backup_Feb25.bak'

The server where TRACKER database is POSRANB021. We want to backup the database to a network drive that belongs to POSRANC011 server. The service account of POSRANB021 is a local admin on POSRANC011.

But when the backup command is run we get

Msg 3201, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
Cannot open backup device '\\POSRANC011\G$\TRACKER_Backup_Feb25.bak'. Operating system error 5(Access is denied.).
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

Beyond the service account being a local Admin, what else do we need to make this work?

do the user that runs the backup script have enough prilages on the network drive to create a file? Your message indicates a windows level permission needed to complete the process..
