My appologies from the get go, as this has probably been answered. Yet my search results come back with nothing.

Trying to deploy the agent via "Single Machine Provisioning" to Windows XP clients. This fails at:

Initializing RPC
Connecting to ADMIN$
ERROR: Failed to open connection - NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED


End of remote communications.

[04/29/10 09:55:44 AM] End provisioning run.

Can somone point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance for your time and help.

Ensure your login credentials have proper access on the system to access the ADMIN$ share. Also, disable any firewall that may be running.

  • If this machine is not on a domain, then a registry edit is needed to permit remote access by local admins to the ADMIN$ share. Here are some details.

Thanks guys, while demoing the KACE 1100, the agent was deployed to a few systems. It was these computers failing on step 3. We ended up just removing the old instance and then provisioning the agent out again.

A little something extra that may be helpful to someone trying to install the client on non-domain machines:

I had to run this registry edit to enable remote local admin access to ADMIN$ found here:


 cmd /c reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system /v LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Also be sure to check NTLM settings on your clients. 

Provisioning only works through NTLM level 0-4, it will not work if set to "Send NTLM v2 only, refuse LM & NTLM" which is level 5.
