DFS Target Mapping

Recommended Posts

$a = DriveGetDrive ("NETWORK")
For $i = 0 To UBound($a)-1
    ConsoleWrite(DriveMapGet($a[$i]) & @CRLF)
Next

or is it not a mapped drive?

If it's not mapped, you can run a command prompt with 'net use'...not sure if there is an autoit equivalent...parse the output.

@PaulP when you say "actual drive mapping" do you mean the Target Folder for each path, or the true path to the folder on the dfs server?

Okay, let me try this again but this time with pictures... If I do a DriveMapGet, it returns DFSROOT which isn't helpful.

I've attached what the drive looks like in Windows Explorer.

Just shows the Drive with no mapping.  Then, if I look at the properties.

What I want is the mapping that is shown in the DFS tab of the properties.

The "net use" also doesn't show my the actual drive mapping.

How do I get the actual drive mapping for a DFS Drive?  In short, I want to determine which server the drive is mapped to.

I have only worked with DFS a little bit, so I'm no expert. But I did a quick search and found dfsutil.exe might be useful and with that, the 'dfsutil property' command (with the 'state' subcommand) would most likely get you the information you need. You could use AutoIt to execute the program with parameters. I have no way of testing any of this right now, so I may be wrong. I hope this will help guide you.

I am quite confident (but it remains untested on my part) that some of the Win32_ WMI class could answer your question.  Look at Win32_MappedLogicalDisk or Win32_LogicalDisk or some other class in that category.  You may find what you need.

Nope, still shows as \\dfsroot\site\RetailApps for the ProviderName for both of these..
