Email It to Me Print this Page
Symptoms I get the following errors in the Summary Report email:

<Server> : Failed to create remote path. Error details: The network name cannot be found., error code: -1

Cannot obtain
Failed to create


 
Cause
The most likely reason is the default admin$ share does not exist.

 
 
Resolution To resolve this issue, please perform the following steps:
  1. Log on to the problematic server and launch Command Prompt.
  2. Execute the following command: net share
NLR - Admin share
  1. If there is no ADMIN$ share in the list, please restore it by setting up the following registry key to 1 (requires reboot):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\AutoShareServer

NLR - AutoShareServer
  1. Reboot the problematic server
