Hi All,

I am trying to enumerate the Shared Network drive in my domain using powershell, but however in my simple script below why the result is different than the the UNC path that I can just copy paste ?

so I got: \\SIMGTP01\root\CIMV2:Win32_Share.Name="Z$"
instead of: \\SIMGTP01\Z$

$strComputer = "SIMGTP01","SIMGTP02"
$colItems = get-wmiobject -class "Win32_Share" -namespace "root\CIMV2" -computername $strComputer
$colItems | Select __SERVER, __PATH, Path, Caption | ft -AutoSize

__SERVER __PATH                                                  Path                                               Caption                     
-------- ------                                                  ----                                               -------                     
SIMGTP01 \\SIMGTP01\root\CIMV2:Win32_Share.Name="Z$"             Z:\                                                Default share               
SIMGTP01 \\SIMGTP01\root\CIMV2:Win32_Share.Name="C$"             C:\                                                Default share               
SIMGTP01 \\SIMGTP01\root\CIMV2:Win32_Share.Name="Webtrends"      F:\Webtrends                                       Temp Area for Webtrends Logs
SIMGTP01 \\SIMGTP01\root\CIMV2:Win32_Share.Name="May09"          F:\SPX Restore\May09                               May09                       
SIMGTP01 \\SIMGTP01\root\CIMV2:Win32_Share.Name="Common$"        F:\Common_Backup                                   Common$
