VB.NET Split() Function Help

I have a variable strStringToBeSplit which contains the following string (quotes included in the string): "\\esxvm1.facultystaff.local\Memory\Memory Overcommit (1 Minute Avg)"

I split this string using the \ character as the delimiter.

I expect the second value in the array storing the split text to return this string (quotes excluded): "esxvm1.facultystaff.local"

The second value of my array always comes up empty. What am I doing wrong?

Dim myValue As String = strStringToBeSplit
Dim strSplitValues() As String = Split(myValue, "\")
txtTextBox.Text = strSplitValues(1) ' comes out blank

The value you want is at the third slot (index #2).  The first and second value are blank because there is nothing in front of the first slash, and nothing between the first and second slash, so they are empty strings.
