Who is Accessing Network Resources?

by May 4, 2015

Provided you have Administrator privileges, you can use a simple WMI class to check whether someone is accessing your resources via the network:

PS> Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_ServerConnection | 
Select-Object -Property ComputerName, ConnectionID, UserName, ShareName 

The same can also be done remotely: add the -ComputerName parameter to Get-WmiObject to see who is accessing the shares on that remote machine. Remote access requires Administrator privileges on the target machine.
