This might work for you: It will scan either a single machine that's passed in the command line, or a list of machines, when called with /L as first argument and the path and name of the file  as second argument:
SearchRDF SomeMachine
or
SearchRDF /L S:\ome\Machine\list.txt
Machines that aren't turned on when you run the script will be ignored and listed in a "failed" file. You can use this file to run it against the remaining machines at a later time, but rename it before you try again!
If you don't have a list of machine at hand, you can create one by typing
net group "domain computers" /domain >machine.txt

====8<----[SearchRDF.cmd]----
@echo off
setlocal
:: *** List of Shares/folders to be scanned:
set ScanFolders=C$ D$
:: *** Pattern to scan for:
set ScanPattern=*.rdf
:: *** File with machine names that didn't respond
:: *** default: %D*rive, *P*ath, *N*ame of argument *0* (the script name), with the extension .txt
set FailedFile=%~dpn0.txt

if %1.==. goto leave
if /i not %1.==/L. goto process
if %2.==. goto leave
set MachineFile=%~2
if not exist "%MachineFile%" goto leave
:: *** Process a list of machines:
if exist "%FailedFile%" del "%FailedFile%"
for /f %%a in ('type "%MachineFile%"') do call :process %%a
goto leave

:process
set Machine=%1
set Machine=%Machine:\=%
set Machine=%Machine:$=%
:: *** Name of the log file:
set LogFile=%~dpn0-%Machine%.log
echo Processing %Machine% ...
ping -n 1 %Machine% | find "TTL" >NUL
if errorlevel 1 goto :NoResponse
:: ***
for %%a in (%ScanFolders%) do if exist "\\%Machine%\%%~a" (
  dir /a:-d /s /b "\\%Machine%\%%~a\%ScanPattern%" >"%LogFile%"
)

goto :eof

:NoResponse
echo ... not responding.
if not "%MachineFile%"=="" >>"%FailedFile%" echo %Machine%
goto :eof

:leave
