Incorrect DNS settings are the most common cause of this problem. Use the ping -a command to verify name resolution, and verify the accuracy of the DNS suffix.

This problem can happen when the default Windows shares do not exist on the target computer.

To confirm and set up shares

net share ADMIN$=C:\WINNT
net share C$=C:\
