VbScript - Find mapped drives on remote PC

ignore the naming convention.... im not too good at naming vars and things..

hope it helps.... did this to help out the helpdesk guys....

Note: pls leave a comment, would like to get feedback.

'This script will give you the mapped drives on a remote machine for the specified user
' It requires the pc name or ip address
' It requires the username of the user whose drive mapping you want to find out on the remote machine
' The script gets the logonsession id and username in the first part of the script and then passes it ot Mappedlogicaldisk to get the drive mappings.
' This script can be refined further to only report on network drive type. however, i cant be stuffed.

'wscript.echo logonidstr3

'Matching username and passing it on to Mappedlogicaldisk to get the network drive mappings.

For Each objDrive in colDrives

Wscript.Echo "Drive letter: " & objDrive.DeviceID
Wscript.Echo "Network path: " & objDrive.ProviderName



Hope it helps.... i did a bit of searching on google before i wrote it, didnt get much luck with googling....
