Description

The Get-FileShare cmdlet gets objects that correspond to the file shares on the specified server. You must have local administrator credentials on a server to retrieve the objects.

Examples

Example 1: Get all file shares on the local server

PS C:\>Get-FileShare

This command lists all the file shares on the local server. You must have local administrator permissions on the server to run this command.

Example 2: Get all NFS file shares on the specified file server

PS C:\>Get-FileShare -Protocol NFS -FileServer (Get-StorageFileServer -FriendlyName "FileServer01")

This command lists all NFS file shares on the file server named FileServer01. You must have local administrator credentials on the server to run this command. The command gets the file server by using the Get-StorageFileServer cmdlet.

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
-FileServer

Specifies the file server on which the file share is hosted. To obtain a FileServer, use the Get-StorageFileServer cmdlet.

Type:CimInstance
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Name

Specifies the name of the file share to get.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
