Determine whether a server is responding

I am trying to determine whether a server is responding.
I tried using ListAvailableSQLServers:

    Set oNames = oSQLApp.ListAvailableSQLServers()
    For i = 1 To oNames.Count
        If oNames.Item(i) = serverName Then
            serverCheck = True
            Exit For
        End If
    Next i

However, I get an error 'Not enough storage is available to complete this operation' when the oSQLApp.ListAvailableSQLServers() command is executed.

Is there another way to determine whether a server is availabe?

Thanks,

Louise

What do you consider to be "available"?  Ping will tell you if the server is available from a communications perspective.  WMI will allow you to see if a specific service is running on a given machine.  If you could be a little more specific, then we might be able to give a more definitive answer.
