    Did you need anything additional? Because you can just run 'net
    session' directly from within PowerShell.

    Re: Checking network connections

    Well i'm creating a backup script (to backup some MS-Access database), but i
    want to check if any else in the network is still using the database. So
    idea is to check the number of incoming network connections;

    You're best bet might be to check if there's a if there's a lock file
    though.

    But you can just call 'net session' directly:

    PSH> net session
    There are no entries in the list.

    PSH> $result=net session
    PSH> if ($result -like "*no entries*"){"no connections"}
    no connections

    gwmi win32_serverSession might give the onfo you need

    also you can use performance counters from PowerShell

    You can use something similar to this:
    Get-WmiObject -ComputerName MYSERVER01 -Query {Select * From
    Win32_ServerConnection Where NumberOfFiles>"0" and
    ShareName="MYSHARE"} | Select-Object UserName,ShareName,NumberOfFiles
    | Format-Table -autosize

    This will work if the Database is the ONLY thing in the share. For
    some reason I can't figure out a way to check specific open files
    within shares just connections to a share that have files open.
    Replace MYSERVER01 with your server name and MYSHARE with the share
    name.
