Manage Mapped Drive Remotely (List, Add, Remove) with IDEAL Administration 2017

Yes, it is effectively possible to realize such an inventory.

You have several possibilities in order to do this :

  • 1) List and manage network drives on remote computers:

Use the right click on the computer, "Properties", "Devices", onglet "Network drives".

  • 2) Execute an inventory in database:

"Inventory" menu, "Systems", "Network drives". You can inventory several computers at once and export these information in a CSV or HTML file.

  • 3) Export to a .csv file using WMI :

"Tools" menu, "Options", "WMI" tab. Configure the WMI properties by adding the "Win32_MappedLogicalDisk" classe if it does not exist yet in the list.

Then, right click on a computer, and choose "WMI properties". Select in the list "Win32_MappedLogicalDisk".

- The "DeviceID" property indicates the letter of the mapped drive.

- The "ProviderName" property indicates the network path name to the logical device.

- The "VolumeName" property indicates the volume name of the logical disk

Clicking the "Export" button, you can define information to export in a .csv file.

The "Win32_LogicalDisk" WMI class can also be useful ("DriveType" = 4).

  • 4) Using a DOS command : NET USE

Right click on the computer, then "Command prompt". The NET USE command lists all the computer's connection. Then the result can be redirected to a text file.
