    Hi all,

    Has anyone had any experience in creating a script to create a new share and add permissions to it…

    I have found a script to create a new share, but can’t manage to get one working to allow a security group access to modify files in it – it only gets generic read only access…

    Const FILE_SHARE = 0
    strComputer = “.”
    Set objWMIService = GetObject(“winmgmts:” _
    & “{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\” & strComputer & “rootcimv2”)
    Set objNewShare = objWMIService.Get(“Win32_Share”)
    errReturn = objNewShare.Create _
    (“C:test”, “newshare$”, FILE_SHARE, _
    MAXIMUM_CONNECTIONS, “Script generated share”)
    Wscript.Echo errReturn

    Any thoughts?

    The reason we want this is to roll out in a group policy to all workstations so we can share out a folder for admin purposes, but we don’t want to give local admin rights on all workstations, otherwise they could just use c$

    Also should mention that this is for XP clients – hence there isn’t the ability to use /grant access on net share

    Many thanks in advance
