Hi.

I am looking for a script to push out from my Active Directory (Windows 2003 Server) to all workstations that will change the computer description (NOT computer name) to  <username workstation>.

Thanks

I would do it in the login script so that the information is "live" - ie shows the person who is currently logged in to the machine.

net config server /srvcomment:%username%

Put an exclusion in the script for the account you use to login to the servers so that the description isn't changed for them.
