When running paexec the following is returned:

Connecting to probe... Failed to connect to \\probe\ADMIN$. Access is denied. [Err=0x5, 5] Failed to copy [C:\Windows\system32\paexec.exe] to [\\probe\ADMIN$\PAExec-121512
-DC01.exe] -- going to try to continue anyway. The system cannot find the file s pecified. [Err=0x2, 2] Starting PAExec service on probe... Failed to start service on probe The system cannot find the file specified. [Err
=0x2, 2] Failed to stop PAExec service. The service has not been started. [Err=0x426, 106 2]

PAExec returning exit code -6

I can connect to the admin$ share in explorer however. Any ideas?
