Just wanted to add a few details for "Access Denied" discovery errors I
was receiving on one particular source server. I had painstakingly
verified everything that was documented for a successful discovery was
working and I STILL could not discover the machine. I finally resolved
it after many frustrating hours. I had all of the administrative shares
in place (ADMIN$, C$, etc) so as a test I tried to create a dummy text
file on the shares and guess what I got "Access Denied". If you've
checked everything else in your troubleshooting and can't figure it out,
make sure you have read AND write access on the shares. I added write
access to the shares and the machine discovered just fine. Hopefully
this can help save someone out there a few wasted hours.
