What commands can be used with Net Use and Symantec Endpoint Encryption?
NET USE Connects or disconnects your computer from a shared resource or displays information about your connections.
NET USE [drive: | *] [\\computer\directory [password | ?]] [/SAVEPW:NO] [/YES] [/NO] NET USE [port:] [\\computer\printer [password | ?]] [/SAVEPW:NO] [/YES] [/NO] NET USE drive: | \\computer\directory /DELETE [/YES]
NET USE port: | \\computer\printer /DELETE [/YES] NET USE * /DELETE [/YES]
NET USE drive: | * /HOME drive Specifies the drive letter you assign to a shared directory.
"*" Specifies the next available drive letter. If used with /DELETE, specifies to disconnect all of your connections.
"Port" Specifies the parallel (LPT) port name you assign to a shared printer.
"Computer" Specifies the name of the computer sharing the resource.
"Directory" Specifies the name of the shared directory.
"Printer" Specifies the name of the shared printer.
"Password" Specifies the password for the shared resource, if any.
"?" Specifies that you want to be prompted for the password of the shared resource. You don't need to use this option unless the password is optional.
"/SAVEPW:NO" Specifies that the password you type should not be saved in your password-list file. You need to retype the password the next time you connect to this resource.
"/YES" Carries out the NET USE command without first prompting you to provide information or confirm actions.
"/DELETE" Breaks the specified connection to a shared resource.
"/NO" Carries out the NET USE command, responding with NO automatically when you are prompted to confirm actions.
"/HOME" Makes a connection to your HOME directory if one is specified in your LAN Manager or Windows NT user account.
To list all of your connections, type NET USE without options.
To mount a network share net use [MOUNT POINT] [UNC PATH] /user:[DOMAIN USER] e.g., if you wanted to mount the "Backup Files" shared folder on server Zeus with account SupportAdmin to mount point x:, you'd use net use x: "\\zeus\backup files" /user:supportadmin or net use x: \\zeus\backup /user:supportadmin
For more help, you can type net use /? Once the share is mounted, the recursive xcopy command can be used to copy files across from the encrypted/recovered machine.
There are quite a bit of command line switches available for the "xcopy" command (you can view them all by running net use /?.
"/USER" can also be specified as: [/USER:[dotted domain name\]username] [/USER:[username@dotted domain name] xcopy [source] [destination]
