_FileWriteLog

4 posts in this topic

Hi

I am having a problem writing a logfile in a remote shared folder. It works fine if I write it to a local drive, also works if I map the drive and then write the log but I dont want to have to do that because its going in a logon script for over 1500 users so what i want I want to do is write it to a UNC path

Here is the problem bit of the script:

$md = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders" , "personal")

if $vmd ="L:\My Docments" then exit

#include <file.au3>

_FileWriteLog("Y:\users.txt" , @UserName)

It really is a simple matter but I cant find anything in the help files to say that you cant write to a UNC

Any ideas guys?????

Thanks

There shouldn't be any problem writing to a remote share like so "\\server\share\". Give an example of what you were trying but failed.

This works for me:

#include <File.au3>

$sLogPath = "\\patch\install\logs\test.log"
_FileWriteLog($sLogPath, "Test")

Hi Big Daddy

Thanks for this...it seems to work fine.

I meant to copy the problem but instead pasted without editing.....sorry DOH!!!

the problem line was:

#include <file.au3>

_FileWriteLog("\\MyServer\Myshare\logfile.log" , @Username)

It will write locally or to a mapped drive but not to a UNC. Your pathline works fine but any idea why this doesnt??

Thanks again for looking and your time

Not sure why, it works both ways for me.
