  • MKDIR And UNC

    Hi,
    I am currently using PBDOS 2.1 and trying to create a folder with a UNC path.
    What I am trying to do is this:
    mkdir \\server\name
    I am getting an error when doing this. Is there any way(s) around this as I do not want to map the network drive? Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    It works fine for me. I have PB/DOS 3.5 and Win2K, but i don' t think this makes a difference.
    Did you put the double quotes around the path, like in
    Code:
    MKDIR "\\server\name"
    ?

      The syntax for an UNC path is "\\server\share\path". You can't use
      MKDIR to create either a server or a share-- those must already exist.
      You can create the path portion, if you have the necessary rights
      to create a path in the \\server\share heirarchy.

        Ah, right, sorry. What had worked for me was
        Code:
        MKDIR "\\SERVER\NAME\FOLDER"
        . I had focused on whether UNC can be used instead of mapped network drive and didn't use the same path of the question.
