Have any of you used the call "NetServerEnum"? If so, can you please provide me with a code snippet? Here when I use it, the parameters "entriesread" and "totalentries" read sensible value, but the bufptr reads some junk(strange characters). I am using SERVER_INFO_101 structure in my call. Can any of you throw some light in this? A code snippet would be very useful..
Thanks and Regards

Did you check that bufptr is a pointer to pointer parameter ?

Yes, It is a pointer to LPVOID...the return value is ERROR_MORE_DATA. But the bufptr is storing some junk values...Dont know why..
Thanks for your reply..

Do you set prefmaxlen parameter to at least sizeof(SERVER_INFO_101) on input ?

What are the values of entriesread and totalentries parameters on output ?

totalentries = 81 and entriesread = 8. I am using Win NT4.0.
Yes, I think my prefmaxlen parameter is okay..set to some high value..
Thanks for your reply...

I have managed to get a correct server enumeration on my net using the following piece of code :

{
NET_API_STATUS      nas ;
SERVER_INFO_101      *psi101 ;
DWORD                  entriesread,totalentries ;
char                  sz[300] ;

nas = NetServerEnum(NULL,101,(LPBYTE*)&psi101,sizeof (SERVER_INFO_101) * 6,
&entriesread,&totalentries,SV_TYPE_ALL,NULL,0) ;

wsprintf(sz,"nas=%d entriesread=%d totalentries=%d servername1=%ls servername2=%ls", (int)nas, (int)entriesread, (int)totalentries, (LPWSTR)psi101->sv101_name, (LPWSTR)(psi101+1)->sv101_name) ;
}

I get :
nas=ERROR_MORE_DATA
entriesread=2
totalentries=6
and servername1 and servername2 indicate two of my servers name.

Please check that you access the SERVER_INFO_101 structure fields with the right syntax, and that you process sv101_name field as a UNICODE string. You should also try to set prefmaxlen to a multiple of sizeof(SERVER_INFO_101)

Hope this helps.

Thanks stsanz...The mistakes I was doing are 1) Wrong value for servertype, 2) casting (LPBYTE*) to pserverinfo (instead of &pserverinfo) and not reading the sv101_name as unicode..I did not read that part of online help carefully..I went through again and it was okay...Thankyou very much..

I am sorry abt a mistake in my previous remark..The bufptr that I was passing was okay..I was passing the pointer to pointer paramater..But II committed a mistake in the servertype and while reading the sv101_name..
Thanks for your info ..
