I need to check connection to a particular Windows Share using the windows Net Use command.The output of Net use command is as follows:
New connections will be remembered.
Status Local Remote Network
OK \\10.81.253.70\G$ Microsoft Windows Net
Disconnected \\10.81.253.140\IPC$ Microsoft Windows Net
The command completed successfully.
Now to check connection for IP \\10.81.253.70\G$ , I wrote the following code
my $c = `net use`;
my $unc = 0;
my @a=split(' ',$c);
foreach $h (@a)
if ($h eq 'OK' || $h eq 'Disconnected')
elsif($temp == 1)
if($status eq 'OK' && $remote eq $inputDirectory)
$temp = 0;
if ($unc == 1)
print "UNC is Connected";
print "UNC is Disconnected";
This works fine BUT if the share name is "\\10.81.253.70\file data\query files" than is fails because i am splitting the output of net use command on every space encountered so if the given share name contains spaces in its name than it breakes the share name on spaces , thus defeating my purpose. Please provide some help or tell how can i check connectivity to shares in windows through perl?
