    Windows 10 Connection to Windows 7 Admin Shares Using SMBv2/3?


    In our business, we do a lot of admin work using the built in admin shares (ex. \\pc-1\c$)A Windows 10 PC cannot connect to a Windows 7 PC's Admin Share without issuing the following commands to first disable SMBv2/3 on the Windows 10 PC:

    sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
    sc.exe config mrxsmb20 start= disabled

    This solution works but is very problematic for us as we want to disable SMBv1 all together. Any help with this issue would be appreciated.

    Thanks. I've done that many times and it doesn't solve my issue. The problem is, I can connect to my file servers on SMBv2/3 but not the admin shares on Windows 7 PCs unless I use SMBv1 which I don't want.
