When pushing out clients, I get the following error messages on some WinXP
computers:

---> Trying each entry in the SMS Client Remote Installation account

Basically, I'm concerned about the following three errors from above:
1.
WNetAddConnection2 failed (LOGON32_LOGON_NEW_CREDENTIALS) using account
adminaccount (00000035)
2.
ERROR: Unable to access target machine for request: "computername", machine
name: "computername", error code: 53
3.
WNetAddConnection2 failed (LOGON32_LOGON_NEW_CREDENTIALS) using account
adminaccount(00000574)

>From what I've read, error 53 means that the site server could not access
admin$ on the client computer. The computer may of been off, or off the
network at the time. File and print sharing MUST be turned on for this to
work, correct? What if I'm getting these errors and file and print sharing
is turned on. What else could be wrong?

Thanks.
