I'm trying to write a script that will list all shares on all drives
Then ignore the default shares:  $ADMIN, Apps$, C$, IPC$, Sys$ and only report (send email and dump to spreadsheet) the shares other than this.
Also trying to have this run locally on each computer and send email only when computer is detected to be authenticated to the domain it's on.  

Here is what I have so far, any help is appreciated.




Dim sSysDrive : sSysDrive = CreateObject( "Scripting.FileSystemObject" ) _
      .GetDriveName(  _
          CreateObject( "WScript.Shell" ).Environment( "PROCESS" )( "SYSTEMROOT" ) )
Dim strComputer : strComputer = "."
Dim objWMIService : Set objWMIService = GetObject( "winmgmts:" _
      & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2" )

Dim colDisks
  Set colDisks = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_LogicalDisk")

Dim drives : drives = ""
Dim objDisk
  For Each objDisk in colDisks
      wscript.echo objdisk.drivetype &" "&objDisk.DeviceID

      If objDisk.DriveType = 3 And objDisk.DeviceID <> sSysDrive Then
         If drives > "" Then
            drives = drives & ";"
         End If
         drives = drives & objDisk.DeviceID & "\"
      End if
  Next
Set colShares = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Share")

For each objShare in colShares
' Wscript.Echo "Allow Maximum: " & objShare.AllowMaximum
' Wscript.Echo "Caption: " & objShare.Caption
' Wscript.Echo "Maximum Allowed: " & objShare.MaximumAllowed
  Wscript.Echo "Name: " & objShare.Name
  Wscript.Echo "Path: " & objShare.Path
' Wscript.Echo "Type: " & objShare.Type
Next

WScript.Echo drives

You can use the Type to filter the results so that the Administrative Shares are not retrieved; e.g. -
Dim strComputer, strResult

strComputer = Inputbox("Enter Computer Name","Enter Computer Name")

If Trim(strComputer) = "" Then strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colShares = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Share WHERE NOT Type=2147483648 AND NOT Type=2147483649 AND NOT Type=2147483650 AND NOT Type=2147483651")
For each objShare in colShares
strResult = strResult + "AllowMaximum: " & vbTab & objShare.AllowMaximum & vbcrlf &_
	"Caption: " & vbTab & objShare.Caption & vbcrlf &_
	"MaximumAllowed: " & vbTab & objShare.MaximumAllowed  & vbcrlf &_
	"Name: " & vbTab & objShare.Name & vbcrlf &_
	"Path: " & vbTab & objShare.Path & vbcrlf &_
	"Type: " & vbTab & objShare.Type & vbcrlf & vbcrlf
Next
wscript.echo "Shares on computer: " & strComputer & vbcrlf &vbcrlf & strResult
wscript.echo "Done"

Open in new window

Produces the following results -Capture.JPG
The Type values were retrieved from here: Win32_Share class

Thank you.  Any idea how I could get the other shares excluded along with the admin shares? IPC$ and Sys$ for example?

This is excluding all Administrative shares; namely:

  • Disk Drive Admin (2147483648)
  • Examples - ADMIN$, C$, D$, E$
  • Print Queue Admin (2147483649)
  • Device Admin (2147483650)
  • IPC Admin (2147483651)
  • Examples - IPC$

Yes, it excludes Administrative shares, but to recognize other shares I would need different method correct?

In that case you could use a combination of UBound and Filter in conjunction with an array of exclusions and check against the sharename; e.g. -

My current output with the above script -Capture.JPGNow I want to exclude print$, CSDemo and for grins I will add sys$:
Dim strComputer, strResult
Dim exclusions

strComputer = Inputbox("Enter Computer Name","Enter Computer Name")

If Trim(strComputer) = "" Then strComputer = "."
exclusions = Array("print$", "csdemo", "sys$")

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colShares = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Share WHERE NOT Type=2147483648 AND NOT Type=2147483649 AND NOT Type=2147483650 AND NOT Type=2147483651")
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
objExcel.Workbooks.Add

For each objShare in colShares
	If UBound(Filter(exclusions, objShare.Name, True, 1)) < 0 Then
		strResult = strResult + "AllowMaximum: " & vbTab & objShare.AllowMaximum & vbcrlf &_
			"Caption: " & vbTab & objShare.Caption & vbcrlf &_
			"MaximumAllowed: " & vbTab & objShare.MaximumAllowed  & vbcrlf &_
			"Name: " & vbTab & objShare.Name & vbcrlf &_
			"Path: " & vbTab & objShare.Path & vbcrlf &_
			"Type: " & vbTab & objShare.Type & vbcrlf & vbcrlf
	End If
Next
wscript.echo "Shares on computer: " & strComputer & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & strResult
wscript.echo "Done"

Open in new window

I now get the following output -Capture.JPG-saige-

One more question, how would I get the output "Name:" and "Path" to output and send via email?

Thank you
