Administrative Shares

By bfeltus ·
Suggestions have been made to secure our servers by removing administrative shares. Some programs need the ADMIN$ share. Can a share be created which is the same as admin share with permissions.

If you want to be able to remotely administer your servers you will need to leave the administrative shares (C$, ADMIN$, etc) as they are. Access to them is only granted to domain admins. Ensure that you implement effective security on your admin accounts and you will have no problem. If you wish to limit access further you can do so by using NTFS permissions.
