Get-SmbMapping

Retrieves the SMB client directory mappings created for a server.

Syntax

Get-SmbMapping
   [[-LocalPath] <String[]>]
   [[-RemotePath] <String[]>]
   [-AsJob]
   [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
   [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-SmbMapping cmdlet retrieves the Server Message Block (SMB) client directory mappings created for a server. This can be a mapping from a local drive letter to a remote shared folder, or it can be a mapping without a local path.

Examples

Example 1: Get SMB client directory mappings

PS C:\>Get-SmbMapping
Status                                  Local Path                              Remote Path 
------                                  ----------                              ----------- 
OK                                      X:                                      \\Contoso-SO\VMFiles 
OK                                      Y:                                      \\Contoso-FS\VMS1

This command retrieves the SMB client directory mappings created for the SMB server.

Example 2: Get SMB client directory mapping for a directory

PS C:\>Get-SmbMapping -LocalPath X: | Select-Object - Property *
Status                : OK 
LocalPath             : X: 
RemotePath            : \\Contoso-SO\VMFiles 
PSComputerName        : 
CimClass              : ROOT/Microsoft/Windows/SMB:MSFT_SmbMapping 
CimInstanceProperties : {LocalPath, RemotePath, Status} 
CimSystemProperties   : Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimSystemProperties

This command retrieves the SMB client directory mapping for the X: directory created for the SMB server.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-LocalPath

Specifies the local path used to map the remote path on this computer.

Type:String[]
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-RemotePath

Specifies the remote path that is accessed from this computer.

Type:String[]
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

None

Outputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/SMB/MSFT_SmbMapping

The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object. This cmdlet returns a MSFT_SmbMapping object that represents the mappings created from the SMB client to SMB shares.
