Reports from OpenFiles within a (file)server,(also monitoring the most used extensions)

Recommended Posts

Hello, fellows.

I recently gave fingerbirth to a script that reports out the current files, and users opening those files currently. Also provides a filter for strings/extensions.

Suggestions and improvements are welcome.

MailBody = This message is an alert.

It might be useful for a Domain admin someday.

Just a server analyst that has never been into programming that much. So, small fish here :)

      Hi everyone,
      I am trying to make a script that runs a query and show it to me to see if everything is right and then decide if I finish it or not so I made a little script as below :
      #include <ADO.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> _ADO_EVENTS_SetUp(True) _ADO_ComErrorHandler_UserFunction(_ADO_COMErrorHandler) Local $sDriver = 'SQL Server' Local $sDatabase = 'DataBase' ; change this string to YourDatabaseName Local $sServer = 'Localhost' ; change this string to YourServerLocation Local $sConnectionString = 'DRIVER={' & $sDriver & '};SERVER=' & $sServer & ';DATABASE=' & $sDatabase & ';UID=' & ';PWD=' & ';' ;~ Global $Query = _ ;~ "BEGIN TRAN" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "UPDATE Table" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "SET HOUR = 4" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "SELECT * FROM Table" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "ROLLBACK TRAN" Global $Query = _ "BEGIN TRAN" & @CRLF & _ "SELECT * FROM Table" & @CRLF & _ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ "ROLLBACK TRAN" _Query_Display($sConnectionString, $Query) Func _Query_Display($sConnectionString, $sQUERY) ; Create connection object Local $oConnection = _ADO_Connection_Create() ; Open connection with $sConnectionString _ADO_Connection_OpenConString($oConnection, $sConnectionString) If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, $ADO_RET_FAILURE) ; Executing some query directly to Array of Arrays (instead to $oRecordset) Local $aRecordset = _ADO_Execute($oConnection, $sQUERY, True) ; Clean Up _ADO_Connection_Close($oConnection) $oConnection = Null ; Display Array Content with column names as headers _ADO_Recordset_Display($aRecordset, 'Query Result') EndFunc ;==> _Query_Display When I ran this script it works great, but when I run the query below :
      Global $Query = _ "BEGIN TRAN" & @CRLF & _ "UPDATE Table" & @CRLF & _ "SET HOUR = 4" & @CRLF & _ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ "SELECT * FROM Table" & @CRLF & _ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ "ROLLBACK TRAN" It doesn't show anything, when I take those begin and rollback it does what it should but still not showing me anything at all, is there a way around it that you know of?
      Thank you.

      Purpose (from Microsoft's website)
      The HTTP Server API enables applications to communicate over HTTP without using Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). Applications can register to receive HTTP requests for particular URLs, receive HTTP requests, and send HTTP responses. The HTTP Server API includes SSL support so that applications can exchange data over secure HTTP connections without IIS.
      There have been several times in the past that I wanted to either retrieve information from one of my PCs or execute commands on one of my PCs, whether it was from across the world or sitting on my couch.  Since AutoIt is one of my favorite tools for automating just about anything on my PC, I looked for ways to make to make it happen.  Setting up a full blown IIS server seemed like overkill so I looked for lighter weight solutions.  I though about creating my own AutoIt UDP or TCP server but that just wasn't robust enough,  Then I found Microsoft's HTTP Server API and it looked very promising.  After doing a little research into the APIs, I found that it was flexible & robust enough to handle just about any of the tasks that I required now and in the future.  So a while back I decided to wrap the API functionality that I needed into an AutoIt UDF file to allow me to easily create the functionality I needed at the time.  It has come in very handy over the years.  Of course it wasn't all wrapped up with a nice little bow like it is now.  That only happened when I decided to share it with anyone else who could use it or learn from it.
      The example file that I included is a very granular example of the steps required to get a lightweight HTTP Server up and listening for GET requests.  The UDF is a wrapper for the Microsoft APIs.  That means to do anything over and above what I show in the example, one would probably have to have at least a general knowledge of APIs or the ability to figure out which APIs/functions to use, what structures and data is needed to be passed to them, and in what order.  However, the UDF gives a very solid foundation on which to build upon.  Of course, if anyone has questions about the UDF or how to implement any particular functionality, I would probably help to the extent that I could or point you in the right direction so that you can figure out how to implement your own solution.
      The APIs included in the UDF are the ones that I needed in the past to do what I needed to do.  If any additional APIs need to be added to the UDF file, please make those suggestions in the related forum topic.
      Being that this is basically an AutoIt wrapper for the Microsoft API functions, there's no need to create AutoIt-specific documentation.  All of the UDF functions, structures, constants, and enumerations are named after their Microsoft API counterparts.  Therefore, you can refer to Microsoft's extensive documentation of their HTTP Server API.  As stated earlier, if there is one or more APIs that you find yourself needing for your particular solution, please suggest it in the related Example Scripts forum topic.

      Hello Guys and AutoIt Scriptwriters!🎉❤️
      I've created a script to notify to me if RDP main IP changed then send a message via Telegram bot to me
      But some of my RDP's Main IP are @IPAddress1 or @IPAddress3 or Public IP Address...
      I want to detect automatically the IP that windows client can run RDP to remotely control
      This image can help you that what i say, there are three RDP with specified IP, i want to run script in these RDP's then capture those IP's changes then notify me via Telegram bot

      Hi All,
      Here's a really simple question. 
      I ran the code from the helpfile under: _SQLite_Open

      Issue is I end up with an error message: SQLite3.dll Can't be Loaded!
      I placed the *.dll in the include folder, but still nothing. 

      Where must this file be placed.
