Windows 10 / Server 2019: Admin$ Share not enabled in WorkGroup

To get this share working, in ex. when you need another server to install a service on this (in my example it was Veeam proxy installation), you need to add this registry key:


DWORD 32bit: LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy

Set this to: 1

Why I’m running workgroup with Veeam Proxy?

Simple! – To protect my backups again ransomeware like Cryptolocker 🙂
