ran a net share sharename and I get, "This shared resource does not exist". I am looking to get security groups assigned to a share on WIN2K8. Thanks.

Please use icacls from the command line.

Here is reference document for this and you can pipe the output to a file.

Icacls does NOT list share permissions.
net share works here, look at this output:
net share brenner
Share name        Brenner
Path              E:\
Remark
Maximum users     No limit
Users
Caching           Manual caching of documents
Permission        Everyone, READ

The command completed successfully.

Open in new window


Maybe you missed that (of course!) you need to substitute "sharename" with the name of the share in question?
