    Not sure what you're trying to do.  

    What version of NetWare are you running?  Why does it have to be VBS?  What is the end goal?

    There are a number of tools available for doing a lot of things with eDirectory/NDS as well as with NT4 stuff, and some of them work with both.

    For developer tools, like ActiveX controls, go to

    For migration tools, go to and look for "Server Consolidation Utility."  That will allow you to import NT4 users and groups into eDirectory.  

    For ready-made tools for exporting various aspects of eDirectory/NDS, check

    You could also check into Winbatch.  It has extenders that give you access into both eDirectory;NDS and Windows NT domains and AD domains.  The syntax is similar to VBS.

    NLIST GroupName SHOW "Members" > C:\MEMBERLIST.TXT

    This will give you a text file of all of the members of the NDS named "GroupName"
    Will this suffice?
