Syntax


fn_servershareddrives()  

Tables Returned

If the current server is a clustered server, fn_servershareddrives returns the drive name of the shared drives.

If the current server instance is not a clustered server, fn_servershareddrives returns an empty rowset.

Remarks

fn_servershareddrives returns a list of shared drives used by this clustered server. These shared drives belong to the same cluster group as the Microsoft SQL Server resource. Further, the SQL Server resource is dependent on these drives.

This function is helpful in identifying drives available to users.

Permissions

The user must have VIEW SERVER STATE permission for the SQL Server instance.

Examples

The following example uses fn_servershareddrives to query on a clustered server instance:

SELECT * FROM fn_servershareddrives();  

Here is the result set.
