Check mapped drive on another computer

To obtain all the map drive in the computer I would physically go to that computer run net use  > mapping.txt,  Then I would copy or print out the txt file.

Today I recive a task to check all the mapping drive for 200 computers. Can I achive this  remotely?
I have local administrator to all this 200 computer but i do not have domain administrator right.

Is there a way to achive this without installing a third party program in those client?

There is no firewall or proxy server.
The network in internal network which i could ping and they are all on the same segment.

it will be part of their user profile NTUSER.DAT on the server or if you have set it up using a group policy it should be generic for all users in a peraticular section

I do not have right to the server.
You mean I can map to the user c: \\computername\c$ and copy ntuser.dat to retive the information.

The implementation is also not a standard group policy so i need to manually complie the information manually

Is there any administrator tools that I can install in my XP professional computer ,
or something like netsh command that I can query the information remotelly
you need domain admin rights to be able to automate this kind of procedure

This is not what I am look for as stated on the initial question.
I am no a scripter, but Mapped drives are stored in the registry (user created mappings, not login script based mappings), under HKEY_USERS\{SID}\Network, and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network. Maybe someone can assist in creating a script for this?
JamesekaAuthor Commented:
Will do some research in the registry key.
If can find the answer will award some point for speed up my research process.

Mean time hopfully someone can provide me a more direct answer to this problem.

HI john
Open the remotelly computer can only see hkey_users and hkey_local machine.
Cannot open hkey_local machine.
Did a search on hkey_users cannot find any usefully values.
The solution did not work.
I am sorry I don't have time to write and test a script for you, but I can point you in the right direction.

Using VBSCripting you should be able to use WMI and an array of computer names to get the information.  I believe the WMI property is win32_logicaldisk.  Still you need to have root access to each system (I am not sure if local admin cuts it, domain admin most definately does).  

What I would do is create a list of systems, one on each line) of a text file.  Then create some logic that "splits" the readall into an array.  Then for each element of the array I would collect a list of their drives using win32_LogicalDisk's DriveType property (a "4" means it is a network drive).

Here is a link to the msdn info on Win32_LogicalDisk:

Hi sr75
Seem like the only way is to write script which I find it quite hard
Just leave this question open hopefully got a easy way to perform this task.
Thanks for you suggestion
It really isn't that hard.  Here is a script I have used in the past to collect all the mapped drives and store them locally on the system.   You can make some simple adjustments to have them save it to a network share and run it as a logon script.   It would only take a little more complex scripting to (using an array) to actually turn it into something you can run from your system and probe the rest of the network.

Hi sr75
Is a quite long since I complie a code. Always use third party program.
Can I ask how you complie this code so I can run it.
If I can compile it i could try with the differnt object class.
there is no compiling.  Copy and paste it into notepad and save it with the .vbs extension.  It will run like a dos batch script does.
