  • Working with an older server OS to be upgraded eventually

    but for now I need to make smb share for AD accounts is there a way to 

    Import-Module Smb*

    Get-ADGroupMember -Identity "Domain Users" -Recursive | select-object saMAccountName | ForEach-Object {New-SMBShare -Name $_.saMAccountName –Path “c:\shares\” ` –ContinuouslyAvailable ` –FullAccess domain\admingroup  ` -ChangeAccess $_.saMAccountName ` }

  • The issue with groups is that they contain users and groups.  The issue with "Recurse" is that the same accounts may occur numerous times.

    You need to rethink what you are trying to do.

    Get-ADGroupMember -Identity 'Domain Users'|
        where{ $_.objectClass -eq 'User' } |
        ForEach-Object {
            New-SMBShare -Name $_.saMAccountName @splat -ChangeAccess $_.saMAccountName

    I strongly recommend against using the 'Domain Users" group as a template.
