AutoShareServer Setting Cannot Prevent Administrative Shares on Cluster Nodes

SYMPTOMS
If you try to disable the administrative shares on a Windows 2000-based cluster by changing the following registry values to 0 (zero), the default administrative shares on cluster disks are not disabled:

When a cluster fails over, a shared disk is automatically shared as a hidden share by the cluster, even if the AutoShareServer registry value is set to 0 (zero).
