I get the following errors in the Summary Report email:
<Server> : Cannot obtain agent file share parameters. Error details: This shared resource does not exist., error code: -1
<Server> : Failed to create remote path. Error details: The network name cannot be found., error code: -1

Cannot obtain
Failed to create


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


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_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesLanmanServerParametersAutoShareServer

NLR - AutoShareServer

  1. Reboot the problematic server
