How to add $ at the end of the user provided information.

How to add $ at the end of the user provided information.
My Qtree should be add with _q at the end once user provided qtree as test then it should be tree_q
My sharename should be add with $ at the end once user provided qtree as test then it should be tree$

 

For more information

 

$qtreename = Read-Host -Prompt 'Input your QTREE  name'

 

New-NcQtree -Volume $volumename -Qtree $qtreename -SecurityStyle ntfs -Vserver $vservername  # here Qtree name need to be append as '_q' at the end of qtree name

 

Add-NcCifsShare -Name $share -Path $pathname1 -SymlinkProperties hide -OfflineFilesMode Manual -VscanProfile strict -Vserver $vservername #  Here sharename should follows with Qtreename$ as powershell takes $ as input of the variable im facing few challenges

 

can anyone please help

Escaping the $ with "`" should do the trick ...

 

$qtreename = Read-Host -Prompt 'Input your QTREE  name'
$qtreename = $qtreename + "_q" #Append _q to the qtree name that was input

New-NcQtree -Volume $volumename -Qtree $qtreename -SecurityStyle ntfs -Vserver $vservername

$share = "`$$qtreename" #` is the escape character in PowerShell
Add-NcCifsShare -Name $share -Path $pathname1 -SymlinkProperties hide -OfflineFilesMode Manual -VscanProfile strict -Vserver $vservername

Hope this helps,

Unless i'm reading this wrong, I don't think that's what he's asking for..

 

You want to know how to add $ to the end of a share before you create it so it's hidden, right?

Hey JGPSHNTAP,

 

The one which im looking for is been answered by Aparajita.

As powershell never allow $ at the end we can user '$ at the end will works..

 

I tried the same and it worked.

 

Thanks to both of you.
