The agent operation failed because the ADMIN $ share on CLUSTER does not exist RRS feed

  • Question

  • Colleagues, help!
    I have a working CLUSTER cluster of two nodes. On both nodes is windows server 2012R2. I am trying to install the Data Protection Manager 2012R2 agent to protect my cluster. In doing so, I get the error "The agent operation failed because the ADMIN $ share on CLUSTER does not exist".
    I checked this situation and this is what happened:
    \\ node01 \ admin $ - available
    \\ node02 \ admin $ - available
    \\ CLUSTER \ admin $ - not available
    How can I open access to the administrative shared folder on the cluster?
    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Make sure you install the DPM agent with an account that has local administrator rights on the cluster nodes.
    You only need to install the DPM agent on the cluster nodes, (not the cluster object), in your case node01 and node02.

    You can try to access the admin$ share manually with the account you're using to install the DPM agents to check if it can access it.

    Example:

    \\node01.domain.com\admin$

    \\node02.domain.com\admin$


    Best regards,
    Leon
