Command line Tool to Display Details of a Share and its Actual Path?

Is there a resource kit tool or some utility that can display a server's share and its its actual path (Drive and directory path)?

We normally use srvrmgr or domain manager or comupter manageement (GUI) to do this... and we need a command line interface...

Thanks!

Thanks Igor. But what if I do not have access to a particular server that I want to find out what a share corresponds to an actual path?

I was hoping:

NET SHARE \\SOMESRVR

would work but it seems the command needs to be done locally on the local server I want to display all the shares.

I recall there was a resource kit tool that did this, I just cannot remember the name. It had the syntax:

C:\> SRVHOW \\SOMESRVR

Shares ar \\SOMESRVR:
Share Path Comment
------- --------- ----------
REPORT$ Z:\REGION1\RPTS Region 1 Reports

Nelson,
I don't know about SRVHOW , but you can use great utility PSEXEC from sysinternals

Run:
psexec \\servername net share
