Syntax issue with DfsUtil in DOS

4 posts in this topic

I've tried this so many ways my head is hurting. Could someone point me in the right direction as to why this code is not working properly?

Run(@ComSpec & " /c " & 'dfsutil.exe /root:\\sample.com\ud$ /export:c:\temp\Namespace.txt',"",@SW_HIDE)

You didn't say how it failed, but you may have to fully path out the dfsutil.exe file, and you should provide the working directory. The examples I see have no path on the export file, so it is presumably saved in the current working directory by default at least.

You'll get more info running it visible and leaving the shell open to read any errors:

Run(@ComSpec & " /k C:\MyUtils\dfsutil.exe /root:\\sample.com\ud$ /export:Namespace.txt", "C:\MyUtils", @SW_SHOW)

I can never get the dos window that AutoIT spawns to issue the command to stay open for viewing. It closes immediately and I've had that problem on any script I've ever ran that referenced a dos command. What am i doing wrong for the window to close like it does?

I just figured out what was going on and why all my dos windows were not staying up when needed and the commands were not running.

My system32 folder on my machine had its rights changed probably due to me having some problems a month or so ago. The permissions on the utils i was trying to run were not visible from dos and did not have full control for admins set.

Thanks for the help and I was able to kill 2 birds with one stone this trip =-)
