ConfigMgr 2012: “Multiple connections to a server” error 0x800704c3

Posted on

I recently had this error (while troubleshooting account credentials) in the CM12 console when running “Test Connection”.  I was attempting to validate the account credentials using C$ of the site server, but it generated error 0x800704c3 for “Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed”.

The resolution?  Don’t use a hidden share!  Instead, I tested the connection with the default SMS_sitecode share and it worked.
