When trying to add one server as a Backup Proxy in Veeam (fully patched version 7) I am getting the error:

[ServerName] Failed to install deployment service.
The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.

--tr.Failed to create persistent connection to ADMIN$ shared folder on host [ip address].
--tr:Failed to install service [VeeamDeploymentService] was not installed on the host [ip address].

In looking this up, I tried a few things that did not fix it.

I disabled UAC completely on the server
I did the registry change
Made sure proper ports were open

I can browse from my computer at the local site to \\server\admin$ just fine and have full read/write capabilities with the account I am using to authenticate during the install.

All of my other servers worked fine, the only difference being they are all Server 2008 R2, and this is Server 2012 Datacenter.

I'm going to look back through the remote firewalls logs to see if I can see anything, but wanted to get this out there in case someone experience the same and could shed some light on the situation.

Do you have Local Administrator or Domain Administrator priveleges on the Server?

can you connect to \\servername without any issues?

Yes, I can connect fine to the server and to the admin$ directory with full permission.  This is a domain controller as well, as the others are.  The only difference is that it is Server 2012.

Same firewalls at all sites, same config mainly.  9 sites work, this is the only that does not.

You do not have any Group Polcies in effect for this server?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Posted the Log snippet from the Veeam Server.

Interesting enough, I can see in event viewer on the server that is failing to install that it successfully logging in and gaining full permission.

Server name and domain have been changed from log.

Fixed it myself, issue was not being able to access the admin$ or any shares between only Server 2012 servers.

I created a reg DWORD HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters\RequireSecureNegotiate and set the value to 2 on all of my Server 2012 VM's.

This has resolved the issue.
