The Admin$ share is renamed in our environment for security reasons. Is there way to change the share name and direct it to the share name in our environment while deploying the DSM Agents?


Open DSM Explorer and drill down to Configuration->Configuration Policy->Default Computer Policy->DSM->Manager->Infrastructure Deployment and change the 'Target Share Name' policy to the desired share name.

***Note: The new share name should resolve to the same sysroot path that Admin$ share does.
