Hello All,

I need to retain the administrator shares limited to the administrators and not to remove them.

I need the reason for users able to access the admin shares rather remove them.

This is windows 2008 server with SP2 standard . Forest Level is windows 2003.

\\servername\c$ on a 2008 server, windows explorer brings up the c drive for domain users. How can i restrict this .

This above links completely removes the access for users and administrators

For administrator to access the drives remotely !!! not  for the users and to access

some folders needs to be accessed by Admins  under this member server

If you right click the C drive you're sharing, security...you should be able to select the security groups that can access the drive.  Make sure only Administrators group hass full access and remove users.

I understand, you need to configure it in share and store management console..

choose Start > Administrative Tools > Share and Storage Management

Just remove the hidden shares from share and storage management and further you can use share limit.

Hi Manish,

The administrative share's default share permission is controlled by the registry value

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\DefaultSecurity\SrvsvcShareAdminConnect.

To configure the Windows Server 2008 to behave the same as Windows Server 2003, we can export the registry value above from Window Server 2003, and import it to Windows Server 2008.

Note: We need to restart the server for the change to take effect.

This will work man... :)

Cheers,
Prem

hi,

Sorry for the late reply.. yes you are right..

2003:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\lanmanserver\DefaultSecurity]

"SrvsvcShareAdminConnect"=hex:01,00,04,80,64,00,00,00,70,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\
  14,00,00,00,02,00,50,00,03,00,00,00,00,00,18,00,03,00,0f,00,01,02,00,00,00,\
  00,00,05,20,00,00,00,20,02,00,00,00,00,18,00,03,00,0f,00,01,02,00,00,00,00,\
  00,05,20,00,00,00,25,02,00,00,00,00,18,00,03,00,0f,00,01,02,00,00,00,00,00,\
  05,20,00,00,00,27,02,00,00,01,01,00,00,00,00,00,05,12,00,00,00,01,01,00,00,\
  00,00,00,05,12,00,00,00

Note: You should restart to see the change effect.

Good Luck...!!!
