Mapped network drive

Recommended Posts

how do you find out if a current connection is persistant or what user the drive was mapped under?

Hi.

Would you mind to post the solution here rather than pointing to a "closed group" system like ExEx, please?

I personaly dislike this kind of platforms, that encourage you to start with a so called "free", teaser trial: IMHO knowledge should be permanently free for all those, that are able and willing to read!

Regards, Rudi.

Sorry, it works if you click the link through Google.

Can I ask why you're looking for that particular attribute?

You're going to make me prove myself wrong aren't you? :^ )

Okay - here's what I have found...

If you map a drive "with" persistent connections, it appears in the registry under the key:

HKCU\Network\<DriveLetter> (obviously, where drive letter is the mapped drive).

If you don't map persistently, the drive letter will simply not appear there, and thus won't be remembered after a reboot.

Now, if you're looking to pull that information automated - if you have a copy of the W2k Resource Kit, you can use REG.EXE to retrieve this info.

reg query hkcu\network

Would reveal the persistent mapped drives.

If, however, you don't have access to reg.exe, you can download it here: http://www.dynawell.com/reskit/microsoft/win2000/reg.zip

Thanx for the challenge! ;^ )

Interesting, thanks.

I'm just wondering if there is a possiblity to create computer persistent mappings. (HKLM rather than HKCU)

I'll check later this week, I have to leave for a 400km foggy car drive right now...

hmm, I was really hoping for just a simpler method, such as querying a file or reg key for a 1 or 0...

basically, I am trying to write a share manager and in the listview I want to show each mapped drive, whether it is persistent or not, and the user who is connected to it.

I also will have a list of local shares with various information, some which I might ask for help at a later time when i get that far.

In any case, so you can get a better idea I'm including what little I have so far of the source:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

how do you find out if a current connection is persistant or what user the drive was mapped under?

WMI can tell you (and a lot of other info too)

MsgBox(0, "", _GetMappedDriveInfo("x:"))

Func _GetMappedDriveInfo($DriveLetter)
    $wbemFlagReturnImmediately = 0x10
    $wbemFlagForwardOnly = 0x20
    $colItems = ""
    $strComputer = "localhost"

    $Output = ""
    $Output &= "Computer: " & $strComputer & @CRLF
    $Output &= "==========================================" & @CRLF
    $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
    $colItems = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkConnection WHERE LOCALNAME = '" & $DriveLetter & "'", "WQL", _
            $wbemFlagReturnImmediately + $wbemFlagForwardOnly)

    If IsObj($colItems) Then
        For $objItem In $colItems
        ;$Output &= "AccessMask: " & $objItem.AccessMask & @CRLF
        ;$Output &= "Caption: " & $objItem.Caption & @CRLF
        ;$Output &= "Comment: " & $objItem.Comment & @CRLF
            $Output &= "ConnectionState: " & $objItem.ConnectionState & @CRLF
            $Output &= "ConnectionType: " & $objItem.ConnectionType & @CRLF
        ;$Output &= "Description: " & $objItem.Description & @CRLF
        ;$Output &= "DisplayType: " & $objItem.DisplayType & @CRLF
        ;$Output &= "InstallDate: " & WMIDateStringToDate($objItem.InstallDate) & @CRLF
            $Output &= "LocalName: " & $objItem.LocalName & @CRLF
            $Output &= "Name: " & $objItem.Name & @CRLF
            If $objItem.Persistent = 0 Then
                $Output &= "Persistent: NO" & @CRLF
            Else
                $Output &= "Persistent: YES" & @CRLF
            EndIf
        ;$Output &= "ProviderName: " & $objItem.ProviderName & @CRLF
        ;$Output &= "RemoteName: " & $objItem.RemoteName & @CRLF
            $Output &= "RemotePath: " & $objItem.RemotePath & @CRLF
        ;$Output &= "ResourceType: " & $objItem.ResourceType & @CRLF
        ;$Output &= "Status: " & $objItem.Status & @CRLF
        ;$Output &= "UserName: " & $objItem.UserName & @CRLF
        Next
    Else
        MsgBox(0, "WMI Output", "No WMI Objects Found for class: " & "Win32_NetworkConnection")
    EndIf
    Return $Output

EndFunc  ;==>_GetMappedDriveInfo

Func WMIDateStringToDate($dtmDate)
    Return (StringMid($dtmDate, 5, 2) & "/" & _
            StringMid($dtmDate, 7, 2) & "/" & StringLeft($dtmDate, 4) _
             & " " & StringMid($dtmDate, 9, 2) & ":" & StringMid($dtmDate, 11, 2) & ":" & StringMid($dtmDate, 13, 2))
EndFunc  ;==>WMIDateStringToDate

Actually, there is a registry entry you can check!

All persistent mappings end up under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network] (Windows 2000/XP anyway)

example for drive mapped as X:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\X]
"RemotePath"="\\\\SERVER1\\JUNK"
"UserName"=""
"ProviderName"="Microsoft Windows Network"
"ProviderType"=dword:00020000
"ConnectionType"=dword:00000001

From what I can tell, all 5 of the entries must be present for the drive persistence to register as positive.

Edit: So here's a function you could drop into your script

$drives = DriveGetDrive("Network")

For $i = 1 To $drives[0]
    MsgBox(0,"Persistent",$drives[$i] & " = " & _IsMapPersistent($Drives[$i]))
Next

Func _IsMapPersistent($MappedDrive)
    $mapErr = 0 
    $MappedDrive = StringReplace($MappedDrive,":","");get rid of the Colon if passed
    If Not StringRegExp($MappedDrive,"(?i)\A[a-z]{1}\z") then 
        SetError(-1); no valid drive letter passed
        Return
    EndIf
    $RemotePath = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\" & $MappedDrive, "RemotePath")
    $mapErr += @ERROR
    $UserName = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\" & $MappedDrive, "UserName")
    $mapErr += @ERROR
    $ProviderName = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\" & $MappedDrive, "ProviderName")
    $mapErr += @ERROR
    $ProviderType = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\" & $MappedDrive, "ProviderType")
    $mapErr += @ERROR
    $ConnectionType = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\" & $MappedDrive, "ConnectionType")
    $mapErr += @ERROR

    If $mapErr then 
        Return False
    Else
        Return TRUE
    EndIf

EndFunc

I'm sure there are other tests you could do on the ProviderType/ConnectionType to make sure they're legitimate enteries, but this should be a start.
