Members

shi2_netname

Pointer to a Unicode string specifying the share name of a resource. Calls to the NetShareSetInfo function ignore this member.

shi2_type

A combination of values that specify the type of the shared resource. Calls to the NetShareSetInfo function ignore this member.

One of the following values may be specified. You can isolate these values by using the STYPE_MASK value.

Value Meaning
STYPE_DISKTREE
Disk drive.
STYPE_PRINTQ
Print queue.
STYPE_DEVICE
Communication device.
STYPE_IPC
Interprocess communication (IPC).
 

In addition, one or both of the following values may be specified.

Value Meaning
STYPE_SPECIAL
Special share reserved for interprocess communication (IPC$) or remote administration of the server (ADMIN$). Can also refer to administrative shares such as C$, D$, E$, and so forth. For more information, see Network Share Functions.
STYPE_TEMPORARY
A temporary share.

shi2_remark

Pointer to a Unicode string that contains an optional comment about the shared resource.

shi2_permissions

Specifies a DWORD value that indicates the shared resource's permissions for servers running with share-level security. A server running user-level security ignores this member. This member can be one or more of the following values. Calls to the NetShareSetInfo function ignore this member.

Note that Windows does not support share-level security.

Value Meaning
ACCESS_READ
Permission to read data from a resource and, by default, to execute the resource.
ACCESS_WRITE
Permission to write data to the resource.
ACCESS_CREATE
Permission to create an instance of the resource (such as a file); data can be written to the resource as the resource is created.
ACCESS_EXEC
Permission to execute the resource.
ACCESS_DELETE
Permission to delete the resource.
ACCESS_ATRIB
Permission to modify the resource's attributes (such as the date and time when a file was last modified).
ACCESS_PERM
Permission to modify the permissions (read, write, create, execute, and delete) assigned to a resource for a user or application.
ACCESS_ALL
Permission to read, write, create, execute, and delete resources, and to modify their attributes and permissions.

shi2_max_uses

Specifies a DWORD value that indicates the maximum number of concurrent connections that the shared resource can accommodate. The number of connections is unlimited if the value specified in this member is –1.

shi2_current_uses

Specifies a DWORD value that indicates the number of current connections to the resource. Calls to the NetShareSetInfo function ignore this member.

shi2_path

Pointer to a Unicode string specifying the local path for the shared resource. For disks, shi2_path is the path being shared. For print queues, shi2_path is the name of the print queue being shared. Calls to the NetShareSetInfo function ignore this member.

shi2_passwd

Pointer to a Unicode string that specifies the share's password when the server is running with share-level security. If the server is running with user-level security, this member is ignored. The shi2_passwd member can be no longer than SHPWLEN+1 bytes (including a terminating null character). Calls to the NetShareSetInfo function ignore this member. Note that Windows does not support share-level security.
