Win2008(sp2)/ VirusScan 8.5.0i / autoupdate unc path not working


On our Win2008 Standard servers with servicepack 2 we installed VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i (patch 😎

In the autoupdate repository list we made entry with a UNC path to a path on server x.

Path: \\\repos1$\

When we try to update our virusscanner we get the following error:

Changing the checkbox [Use logged-on account] makes no difference.

Manually the unc path is accessible.
