Trying to SaveCred with Net Use

6 posts in this topic

hello world!

i am trying to save credentials in windows 7 using net use /savecred.  however not sure why i am getting a wrong password error - password is correct, account is not locked and when i try the same username and same password manually (not via script - it works).  i also have a pass check function which also verifies the password is correct.

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Login()

Func Login()

    $username = @UserName
    $password = InputBox("", "", "", "*", 200, 130)

    If @error Then Exit

    $valid = _ValidUserPass($username, @LogonDomain, $password)

    If $valid = False Then
        MsgBox(0, "", "wrong password")
        Login()
    Else
        Example($username, $password)
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>Login

Func Example($username, $password)

    $pc_hostname = "PC2310"

    DriveMapDel("Z:")

    Local $iPID = Run(@ComSpec & " /c net use z: \\" & $pc_hostname & "\c$ /SAVECRED", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE, $STDERR_CHILD + $STDIN_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD)
    Local $sOutput = ""
    While 1
        $sOutput = StdoutRead($iPID)
        If @error Then
            ExitLoop
        EndIf

        If $sOutput = "" Then ContinueLoop

        ConsoleWrite($sOutput & @CRLF)

        If StringInStr($sOutput, "name") <> 0 Then
            StdinWrite($iPID, $username)
            ConsoleWrite("user entered" & @CRLF)
        EndIf

        If StringInStr($sOutput, "password") <> 0 Then
            StdinWrite($iPID, $password)
            ConsoleWrite("pass entered" & @CRLF)
            StdinWrite($iPID)
        EndIf
    WEnd

    While 1
        $sOutput = StderrRead($iPID)
        If @error Then
            ExitLoop
        EndIf

        ConsoleWrite($sOutput & @CRLF)
        Exit
    WEnd

EndFunc   ;==>Example

Func _ValidUserPass($username, $computer, $password)

    Local $valid = True
    RunAs($username, $computer, $password, 0, @ComSpec & " /c  echo test", @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)
    If @error Then $valid = False
    Return $valid

EndFunc   ;==>_ValidUserPass

any help is greatly appreciated

thanks

Have you tried using RunAs instead of Run?

interesting approach, the drive mapping was successful but the credentials didn't save because - once i UNC to the server path i still get prompted for credentials.

I found something interesting on the web about using net use with the /user: and /savecred options.  Hit the link below for the full source, but the meat of the conversion is copied below in italics

i spend my whole day looking for an answer to similar question and i finally found one, so i though it would be nice to share it with you.  /savecred option sure doesn`t work like it looks and it is a dead end if you want to do what you are writing about. The conflicting switches are /user and /savecred. What you really want to do is to add something to windows credential manager and then windows will automagicly use it to logon to a persistent share on next logon.

So first add credentials:
cmdkey /add:%Server% /User:%domain%\%user% /Pass:%PWD%

Then using same credentials mount the share
net use P: \\%Server%\share /user:%domain%\%user% %PWD%  /persistent:yes

You can check stored credentials by typing "control keymgr.dll" in RUN

And here you go, next reboot gives you nothing but still working shares.

 

Maybe that will help.
