How to connect to a hidden admin share on Windows 2008
I am unable to connect to C$ or admin$ on Windows 2008.
- Click “Start” and choose “Run”
- Enter “Regedit” and click “OK”
- Expand the tree “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE” > “SOFTWARE” > “Microsoft” > “Windows” > “CurrentVersion” > “policies” > “system”
- Add LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy (As a DWORD value)
- Set value to 1
If you have the local firewall switched on, ensure that the policies will allow access to the filesystem.
Ensure that you have a valid user account to connect with.
