Shares setup on Windows 2008 R2 with AD and OU's have been working and still work on Windows 7 on a Domain.

I have 2 shares that work with normal domain accounts on Windows 8 pro but as soon as you have any kind of Admin account it won't automatically setup the shares anymore. The shares will disappear. Admin account can be domain or a domain account that is added on a specific computer as an admin.

Remove admin privileges or security group from domain user and shares will appear. Can manually add share but AD and OU's are setup to setup wherever the user log in.
