The IADsFileShare interface is a dual interface that inherits from IADs. It is designed for representing a published file share across the network. Call the methods on IADsFileShare to access or publish data about a file share point.
The IADsFileShare interface has these methods.
IADsFileShare is supported by WinNT system provider only. Using the WinNT provider, you can also bind to a FPNW share by substituting "FPNW" for "LanmanServer" in the code examples below.
To bind to a file share, using the WinNT system provider, you can explicitly bind to the file service "LanmanServer" on the host machine, and then enumerate the container to reach the file share of interest, or bind directly to the file share.
The following code example demonstrates how to bind to the file service and enumerate the container to display the names of the shares in that container.
Dim fs as IADsFileService Dim share As IADsFileShare On Error GoTo Cleanup Set fs = GetObject("WinNT://aComputer/LanmanServer") For Each share In fs MsgBox("Share: " & share.name) Next share Cleanup: If (Err.Number<>0) Then MsgBox("An error has occurred. " & Err.Number) End If Set fs = Nothing Set share = Nothing
The following code example demonstrates how to bind directly to a file share.
Dim fs as IADsFileShare On Error Resume Next Set fs = GetObject("WinNT://aComputer/LanmanServer/_file_share_name_")
