Traditional directory services supply data only about directory service elements represented in the underlying data store. Data about resources for file services may not be available from the underlying directory store.

Example Code [Visual Basic]

The following code example shows how to enumerate open resources managed by a file service.

Dim fso As IADsFileServiceOperations
On Error GoTo Cleanup

' Bind to a file service operation on "myComputer" 
' in the local domain.
Set fso = GetObject("WinNT://myComputer/LanmanServer")

' Enumerate resources.
For Each resource In fso.Resources
	MsgBox "Resource path: " & resource.Path
Next resource

	If (Err.Number<>0) Then
		MsgBox("An error has occurred. " & Err.Number)
	End If
	Set fso = Nothing
