I am trying to install and update agents using VMM 2008 R2. My VMM Service account has admin access to the VMM server and the host servers. Logged in as the service account, I can copy files from the VMM server to \hostserver\admin$ all day long.
When I try to install or upgrade an agent, I get an error saying "Agent installation could not access the ADMIN$ share on server FOOBAR"
I also enabled tracing for VMM and the trace logs are showing that the copy to admin$ is failing. However, I can manually access admin$ with the same account that I am using to run the job and with the VMM service account, so I don't think its a permissions/access issue.
Any ideas what else I could do?
