HRESULT Resources(
  [out] IADsCollection **ppResources

Return value

This method supports the standard return values including S_OK. For more information and other return values, see ADSI Error Codes.


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.


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

For a code example using the IADsFileServiceOperations::Resources method, see the code example given in IADsResource.
