Hi I need some help getting a script working, So far the script takes column 2 (location of folder) and column 3 (username) from a .csv file, creates the folder and sets permissions. I also need it to share the folder and set share permissions but after a few failed attempts I admit I can't seem to get the syntax right. The share also needs to be hidden so I need it to add a $ sign at the end of the share name. Line 6 (marked by##) of the script below is all that needs tweaking

$scriptblock = {
    param ($arg2, $arg3)
    new-item -itemtype directory -path $arg2
    #set permissions with $arg3
    icacls $arg2 /grant "$($arg3):(OI)(CI)F"
    ##"net share ",$_,"$","=",($arg2).Path,"\",$_," ""/GRANT:Everyone,FULL"" ""/Unlimited"""
}
$s = New-PsSession -computername server1
Import-Csv "C:\test\test.csv" | ForEach-Object {
    Invoke-Command -session $s -ScriptBlock $scriptblock -ArgumentList $_."second", $_."third"
}

You really should name your parameters in a more appealing way...
$scriptblock = {
    param ($folder, $user)
    new-item -itemtype directory -path $folder
    #set permissions with $user
    icacls $folder /grant "$($user):(OI)(CI)F"
    net share "$(Split-Path $folder -leaf)`$=$folder" '/grant:Everyone,Full' '/unlimited'
}
$s = New-PsSession -computername server1
Import-Csv "C:\test\test.csv" | ForEach-Object {
    Invoke-Command -session $s -ScriptBlock $scriptblock -ArgumentList $_."second", $_."third"
}

Thanks that's great, I am quite new to the param command so naming them arg2 & arg3 just helped me separate any naming association in my head and better understand how it works but thanks for advice when I get my head fully round it I will start naming them better.
