Unable to browse to "C$" on new Windows Server 2012
Posted on 2014-09-03
I physically have a new Server 2012 machine, standard version of OS. It's running Hyper-V. I have created a new VM that's also running Server 2012 Standard.
I can browse to shares on the new VM with no issues. I cannot browse to the C$ or D$ of the new VM. I have tried multiple admin accounts with no luck. It just comes back to the credentials screen and says "access denied" at the bottom.
I have even went as far as granting "everyone" full access to the root of the C: as a test and it still fails with "access denied".
Nothing architecturally has changed over the network or firewall, just the introduction of the new server 2012 machine.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
