Create remote share on server 2008 r2

Recommended Posts


On our old server 2003 server I had the following code that would remotely share a folder and set its permissions.

Now on server 2008 r2 its not working and I can't figure out why

$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & $datacomp & "\root\cimv2:Win32_Process")
$objWMIService = $Locator.ConnectServer($datacomp, "\root\CIMV2")
$objNewShare = $objWMIService.Get("Win32_Share")
$objNewShare.Create('"' & "F:\Home Directories\Users\" & $username & '"', $username & "$", $FILE_SHARE, $MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS, "Share for " & $username)

Is there anything I'm missing, or is there another way? I also tried using rmtshare.exe but that has to be run directly on the server, not remotely

any help would be greatly appreciated

Nevermind, I actually got it to work in the end using WMI to remotely run a cmd prompt and do rmtshare.exe

Could a MOD delete this if they are available, as the issue is resolved for my needs.

This one worked for me with Win2k8 R2!

It will share c:temp:

Global $oErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "ObjErrorHandler")
$host = "localhost"
$ret = WMI_CreateShare($host, "C:\temp", "UEZ")
Func WMI_CreateShare($host, $path, $username, $file_share = 0, $max_connections = -1, $usr = "", $pass = "") ;coded by UEZ 2011
    Local $ping = Ping($host, 1000)
    If @error Then SetError(1, 0, -1)
    Local $aResult[1000][3], $i = 1
    Local $objWMILocator = ObjCreate("WbemScripting.SWbemLocator")
    If @error Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)
    Local $objWMIService = $objWMILocator.ConnectServer($host, "\root\cimv2:Win32_Process", $usr, $pass, "", "", 0x80)
    If @error Then Return SetError(3, 0, 0)
    Local $objNewShare = $objWMIService.Get("Win32_Share")
    If IsObj($objNewShare) Then
        Local $rmtshare = $objNewShare.Create($path, $username & "$", $file_share, $max_connections, "Share for " & $username)
        If Not $rmtshare Then Return SetExtended($rmtshare, True)
        Return SetError(5, $rmtshare, 0)
    Return SetError(4, 0, 0)
Func ObjErrorHandler()
    ConsoleWrite(   "A COM Error has occured!" & @CRLF  & @CRLF & _
                                "err.description is: "  & @TAB & $oErrorHandler.description & @CRLF & _
                                "err.windescription:"    & @TAB & $oErrorHandler & @CRLF & _
                                "err.number is: "        & @TAB & Hex($oErrorHandler.number, 8)  & @CRLF & _
                                "err.lastdllerror is: "   & @TAB & $oErrorHandler.lastdllerror   & @CRLF & _
                                "err.scriptline is: "    & @TAB & $oErrorHandler.scriptline  & @CRLF & _
                                "err.source is: "        & @TAB & $oErrorHandler.source      & @CRLF & _
                                "err.helpfile is: "    & @TAB & $oErrorHandler.helpfile    & @CRLF & _
                                "err.helpcontext is: "  & @TAB & $oErrorHandler.helpcontext & @CRLF _
