You cannot access an administrative share on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2

I have be struggling for this from Windows Server 2008 R1. Below is the working solution.

  1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start search box, and then press ENTER.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or provide confirmation.
  2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesLanmanServerParameters
  3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value.
  4. Type Level2Compatibility, and then press ENTER.
  5. Right-click Level2Compatibility, and then click Modify.
  6. In the Edit DWORD (32-bit) Value box, type 1 in the Value data box, and then click OK.
