I ran into a problem the other day with a couple Windows 2016 servers that were in a Workgroup (not a Domain) and trying to go to their Shares via UNC... I couldn't, unless I used the main Administrator account. Even though my local user was on both servers with the same name and same password, they wouldn't let me get to C$ or servershare or anything...

Turns out, that has been like that for a while. It's a security thing... So add the following registry key on both servers (if you are going back and forth to the shares). I don't think I had to reboot or anything...



Name = LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy
