Heyas,

How do I create and enable full access to folder share in Windows Server 2012 R2? The netshare command doesn't seem to work.

Thank you.

have you tried the NET command?

Type NET /? at a command prompt.  NETSHARE won't work and won't be found because it's not correct.  NET SHARE is.

Why are you running that in a PowerShell prompt?  Run it in a command prompt.

Hi Leew,

No options to launch CMD from the Windows Server Core.  The command
'net share corefig=c:\corefig /G everyone:f' didn't work error message 'You have used an option with an invalid value'.

Thank you.

here's how to get to cmd prompt.

press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, open Task Manager, click More Details. The File menu opens. In the File menu, click Run new task, and then start either Cmd.exe or Powershell.exe.

You're problem is that you're running this in a PowerShell prompt.  

You can use powershell to create a share, but NET SHARE works just fine in a COMMAND prompt.  Run CMD and you'll find it works.

WHY are you running a core install?
