220-902 question 37 discussion


A technician is using a domain account to access files located on a server at the path
\\computername\C$. The technician receives an Access denied error message. Which of
the following is MOST likely the cause of the error?

  • A. The server is no longer accepting connections since reaching its limit of open shares.
  • B. The password is incorrect, requiring the user to reset it before authentication will proceed.
  • C. The username should be prefixed by the domain, followed by a backslash (e.g., domain\username).
  • D. The account does not have local administrative permissions to access the server share.

Since the location is a specific device itself and not a registered domain name, it is possible you are not accessing a server or Domain registered component of the network. In that case, you would need local Administrative rights as the Computer is not using Domain credentials to authenticate locally.


The C$ of any pc is the local administrator hidden shared drive and would require local administrator permission to access.
