I have a 2008 server Domain with a bunch of windows 7 boxes and i cant access the admin$ or c$ shares. I can ping computers. I see the shares on the local machines but from the server i cant access them keeps says network path not found. I am looking through the GPOs and dont know what would be causing this.

are you able to access the \\domain\sysvol or \\servername\sysvol?

What message do you get trying to access the Admin share?

I thought you were talking about accessing the server.
On the workstation is the Firewall feature enabled?  It maybe blocking.  IF you disable it can you access the ADMIN$ or C$?

The issue was i have a GPO for Computer Configuration >Policies> Admin Templates > Network > Network Connections > Windows Firewall > Domain Profile > Allow Inbound file and printer sharing exception > I enabled it and put in the server Ips. That wasnt working until i change the ips and just put "*". I only wanted the server to access the admin shares.
