Means active directory integrated with dns server configured on the windows server...?
When you goto the active directory users & computers in administrator tools (run as admin)then right click to computers and clecik on export list and save as a txt file...

Sure, are you happy with dsquery? Nice and straight forward :)

You'll have to clean it up a little afterwards, two find and replace should do. One to get rid of the spaces at the start, the second to get rid of the $.


dsquery computer -limit 0 | dsget computer -samid > outputfile.txt


I can give you alternatives involving VbScript and such as well if you wish, depends a little on what your aim is.

If you want a scripted solution you could use what I posted in the other question:

dsquery computer ou=sales,dc=microsoft,dc=com > C:\file.txt

Or.. As RobWill suggested, right clicking on the Computers OU (If that's where all your computers are located at) and choosing Export List will work as well.

Or.. are you looking for something more robust?

Those worked great, I ended up using SpiceWorks to export a list to Excel, so I could remove columns and end up with a list of just machine names.  That way I could execute a command and have a file with a list of machine names to use as a parameter.  

Thanks
