Examples

The following VBScript code example creates a share folder and then gets the value of the access mask in the security descriptor that secures the share folder.



Const FILE_SHARE = 0
Const MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS = 4000 
strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set objNewShare = objWMIService.Get("Win32_Share")
Return = objNewShare.Create ("C:\Temp", "TestShare", FILE_SHARE, MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS, "test share")

If Return <> 0 Then
          WScript.Echo Return
          WScript.Quit
End If

Set objShare = objWMIService.Get("Win32_Share.Name='TestShare'")
Return = objShare.GetAccessMask
WScript.Echo Return
