Sometimes Error-message in vbscript (sheduled task)

Hi everyone,

For some time now I have been using a vbscript to automatically close idle sessions to a XP-host in my network. It acts as a FTP-server and people use it a lot to access shared folders. After some open sessions, some clients can't connect anymore to the shared folders. The script cleares the connections of the users which doesn't have any open files.

I have the feeling that the script doesn't work anymore and sometimes an error-message appears. It is actually random when the script runs. I have set this to run every 5 minutes.

I hope you can help me resolve this. I have enclosed the error message on my server and the vbscript.

Thanks in advance!
Set dResources = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
Set oConnection = GetObject("WinNT://DT_A2O_XW6200_1/LanmanServer")

Set cResources = oConnection.Resources
For Each oResource in cResources
    If Not dResources.Exists(LCase(oResource.User)) Then dResources.Add LCase(oResource.User), 1
Next
Set cResources = Nothing


Set cSessions = oConnection.Sessions
For Each oSession in cSessions
    If Not dResources.Exists(LCase(oSession.User)) Then _
        cSessions.Remove(oSession.Name)
Next
Set cSessions = Nothing

Set oConnection = Nothing
Set dResources = Nothing

Open in new window

Hi, it looks like the session has already disappeared the moment you are trying to close it.

You could add some basic error handling by adding "On Error Resume Next" at the begin of your script. That will ignore the error and continue your script.

If you're interested in how may times things go wrong, add some code after the csessions.Remove statement, like writing date,time, session name etc. to a file.

When for some reason, your script stops functioning at all, you'd have to comment out the On Error ... statement to see the errors again.

Thanks for the answer gerwinjansen. I just added the "On error resume next" and will see how it goes. I also removed the old sheduled task and made a new one. At the first glance, everything is going good at the moment. Thanks!
