Retrieve All SQL Server Name....

        I'm on project concern of programming SQL Server Application utilizing Delphi 5.0 as a complier. What I just want to know is How to retrieve all SQL Server Name and have it shown in Listbox on my form...for their convenience... I dont' want them to ask Administrator or to remember SQL Server name without necessary. Just like when I double click on TADOConnection and select provider to be OLE SQL Server then SQL Server Name Shown on ListBox above.
         Show me some code to do that, I'll reward you my points...

Hi Doom Daemon,

put this code in a unit:

unit uDomainInfo;


 Windows, Classes, Sysutils;

   NetApi32 = 'netapi32.dll';
   SV_TYPE_SERVER = $2;//   'Server type mask, all types of servers
   SIZE_SI_101 = 24;



   SERVER_INFO_101 = record
     dwPlatformId : integer;
     lpszServerName: LPWSTR;
     dwVersionMajor: integer;
     dwVersionMinor: integer;
     dwType: integer;
     lpszComment: LPWSTR;

//function NetApiBufferFree(BufPtr : pointer): integer; stdcall;
procedure GetServers(filter : Dword; const domain : string; list : TStrings);
NetAPI: THandle;

_NetServerEnum: function(serverName : PWideChar; level : Integer;
   var BufPtr : Pointer; prefMaxLen : Integer; var entriesRead,
   totalEntries : Integer; servertype : Integer; domain : PWideChar;
   var resume_handle : Integer) : integer; stdcall;

_NetApiBufferFree: function(BufPtr : pointer): integer; stdcall;

_SQLBrowseConnect: function(SQLHDBCConnectionHandle: THandle;
InConnectionString: string; StringLength1: integer;
OutConnectionString: PWideChar;
BufferLength: integer;
StringLength2Ptr: integer) :integer; stdcall;

procedure GetServers(filter : Dword; const domain : string; list : TStrings);
 wServerName : WideString;
 wDomain : WideString;
 pwDomain : PWideChar;
 rv : Dword;
 p : PSERVER_INFO_101;
 buffer : pointer;
 i, entriesRead,
 NIL_HANDLE : Integer;
 ServerName : string;

 ServerName := '';
 wServerName := ServerName;
 wDomain := domain;
 if domain = '' then
   pwDomain := Nil
   pwDomain := PWideChar (wDomain);
 NetAPI := SafeLoadLibrary(NetApi32);
 if NetAPI <> 0 then
   @_NetServerEnum := GetProcAddress(NetAPI, 'NetServerEnum');
   @_NetAPIBufferFree := GetProcAddress(NetAPI, 'NetApiBufferFree');
 rv := _NetServerEnum (PWideChar (wServerName), 101, buffer, MAX_PREFERRED_LENGTH,
                     entriesRead,  totalEntries, filter, pwDomain, NIL_HANDLE);
 if rv = ERROR_SUCCESS then
     p := PSERVER_INFO_101 (buffer);
     for i := 0 to entriesRead - 1 do
       list.AddObject (p^.lpszServerName , TObject ( p^.dwPlatformId));
   raise Exception.CreateRes(rv);


And use this code to fill a combobox with the servernames:

procedure x
var lst : TStringList;

  lst := TStringList.Create;
  GetServers($4, DOMAINNAME', lst);
  ComboBox1.Items := lst;

(nice code!)
