While replicating an image located in Admin$ network share from local office to remote office. 

Cause:

Resolution: 

Follow the steps given below to resolve this issue,

  1. Copy the image file to a new network share without Admin$ privilege in the local office and configure this network share as a new Image Repository.

  3. Select the Edit icon available near the image repository and modify the image repository details to the newly configured one. Refer the below screenshot for better understanding, network error
  4. Retry image replication from local office to remote office now.
