I have a login script that I need to run on all machines in my network, except I do not want it to run on my Citrix servers when users login.  I need help with a bat file that can get the ip of the machine being logged into and if it matches a list of ip's the script will not run.

Thanks in advance,
Tom

Ok, here is the batchscript.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
@echo off
cls
if %computername% ==CITRIX_SERVER1_NAME Goto end
if %computername% ==CITRIX_SERVER2_NAME Goto end

:Logit
echo %username% >> \\Server_NAME\share_name\logfile.txt
echo %computername% >> \\Server_NAME\share_name\logfile.txt


:end
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, change the CITRIX_SERVER1_NAME with the name of the citrix server.

Also, you need to share a folder with write permission for Domain Users.
Change Server_NAME and share_name with it. This is the place where all the logs are saved.

just make sure that you change the CITRIX_SERVER1_NAME as you get it using this command.

Logon to Citrix server
Open command prompt

echo %computername%

this should show you a name, use this.
