Mapping C$ drive using variables

Recommended Posts

southboyj

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

1 - I am asking the user for input

$UserID entry is in DOMAIN\USER format (and is admin on target PC)

$Computername has been entered as computername, IP address and \\computername and \\IP address

2 - Mapping the C$ drive of another computer

3 - Copying a file from the same directory as the script to that drive.

So far, I am not able to map the drive successfully. Is there some syntax error in the DRIVEMAPADD line? Something else?

Script is as follows:

$UserID = InputBox ("User Name", "Enter User name", "", "")

$Password = InputBox ("Password", "Enter Password","", "X")

$ComputerName = InputBox ("Computer Name", "Enter Computer Name","", "")

DriveMapAdd ("J:", "$Computername\c$", 0, "$UserID", "$Password")

FileCopy ("@ScriptDir\Filename.txt","J:", 1)

try

$UserID = InputBox ("User Name", "Enter User name", "", "")
$Password = InputBox ("Password", "Enter Password","", "X")
$ComputerName = InputBox ("Computer Name", "Enter Computer Name","", "")

DriveMapAdd ("J:","\\" & $Computername & "\c$", 0, $UserID, $Password)
FileCopy (@ScriptDir & "\Filename.txt","J:", 1)

you can just enter an IP or Computername with out any slashes
