administrative share not created after adding an RDM to virtual server

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I had a LUN that was no longer needed on one of my virtual servers where it was added as a raw disk mapping. I deleted the disk and added the now available RDM to another virtual server. I mapped it as drive letter H and formatted it. Now, when I try to access the drive from any other machine the administrative share \\server_name\H$ is not available. I go the the server's file and share administration mmc and I see admin shares for all my RDMs except for the one I just added. No matter how I try to add the H$ it doesn't work.
Can somebody please let me know what am I doing wrong? I've never had this happen before. Every time I added an RDM in the past I got the admin share for that drive.
