I have been modifying a script to create and map a drive if it does not exist. I am not able to get past the error indicated above. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The code is as follows:


Set objGroupRFTime = GetObject("LDAP://CN=RFEM Time,OU=Department-function distribution groups,OU=RFEM,DC=RFEK,DC=com")

 

For Each oUser In objGroupRFTime.Members

      

   If oUser.Class = "user" Then

 

   Set objNet = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")

   Set FSO = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")

 

   sUserName = objNet.UserName

   sDomainName= objNet.UserDomain

 

   If LCase(oUser.samAccountName) = LCase(sUserName) Then

      folderToCheckFor = "\\rfaccount\d$\OLMS\Orion\RFEMTime\" & sUserName

      If (FSO.FolderExists(folderToCheckFor)) = False Then

         FSO.CreateFolder(folderToCheckFor)

         Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

         

         for i=1 to 15

            if objfso.folderexists(folderToCheckFor)<>0 then

               Call WshShell.Run("CACLS " & folderToCheckFor & " /T /E /C /G " & sDomainName & "\" & sUserName & ":F",2,True)  

               exit for

            end if

            WScript.Sleep 1000

         next

         

         Set WshShell = Nothing      

      End If

      

      a="\\rfaccount\d$\OLMS\Orion\RFEMTime\" & sUserName

      

      If FSO.DriveExists("W:") = False Then

         for i=1 to 15

            If objfso.folderexists(a)<>0 Then

               objnet.mapnetworkdrive "w:",a

               exit for

            end if

            WScript.Sleep 1000

         next

      Else

 

         objnet.removenetworkdrive "w:", True

         WScript.sleep 1000

         for i=1 to 15

            if objfso.folderexists(a)<>0 then         

               objnet.mapnetworkdrive "w:",a

               exit for

            end if

            WScript.Sleep 1000

         next

      End If

 

   End If

   Set FSO = Nothing

   Set objNet = Nothing

 

   End If

   oUser.SetInfo

   Set oUser = Nothing

Next

 

WScript.Quit

 

for i=1 to 15

  If objfso.folderexists(a)<>0 then

     objnet.mapnetworkdrive "w:",a

     Exit for

  End if

Please and thank you. The code works if an administrator but not as a user. I am getting the error at 29,10 Permission denied. I have shared out the location with full permissions in an effort to determine the cause with the same result. I have also granted NTFS level permissions. Still no luck, any ideas?

Line 29 is blank...but I can tell you're trying to access an administrative/hidden share (d$) which is restricted for admins only...

So now that I have my mental defect out of the way! I have removed the call to the hidden share and replaced it with the share name and all works quite smoothly. Thank you for your rapid replies to this issue. In addition, so that I may learn from this, what was it that was changed in the script to make it function correctly?

I see now, on lines 34,45 and 65 the obj was removed clarifying the call to the FSO.folderexisits variable.

Correct - you can call the reference to the file system object anything...
For example:

Set PeanutButter = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

You just have to be certain you always use it as that name in your code...

Set objFolder = PeanutButter.GetFolder("C:\Folder\")
If PeanutButter.FolderExists("C:\Folder\") Then  ' ...
