  • Creating multiple shares

    Hi all,

    I downoladed the Hyena Evaluation yesterday.
    I installed it, and it definitely looks interesting.
    Here's my question:

    Hi all,

    I want to share the same folder on each computer in the organization.
    e.g. All computers have a folder named d:\Source. I want to create a share
    for this directory for all of the computers.
    Is there a way to automate this task, so that I won't need to add the share
    one at a time?
    I tried using the "Copy Share" command, but it wasn't successful.
    Isn't there some something like "Create share X on all computers of the domain?"

    I'd appreciate your input.

    You can do this using rmtshare.exe from the Windows NT Resource Kit. This would require a batch file with one entry per computer.

    Hyena can create this batch file for you using the Generate Macro function. You will select all of the computers in the right window, then go to Tools->Generate Macro.

    In the Macro Command String box type in:

    rmtshare \\%E%\Source=d:\Source

    Type in an output filename of c:\shares.bat and click OK. Hyena will then create the shares.bat file with one entry per selected computer and replace the %E% with the computer name.

    You can then just run the batch file and the rmtshare program will create the share for you on each of those computers.
