I need a quick VBScript that basically looks for a computer name.  When the VBScript is ran if the computer name is "k-tsvr2" then DO NOTHING if it is anything BUT k-tsvr2 then launch a batch file.

Why do you need a vbscript... why not just use the batch file?

If "%computername%" == "k-tsvr2" GOTO End
REM --- DO EVERYTHING HERE
REM --- ETC
REM --- ETC
:End

One way...

Dim objNet:Set objNet=CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
If objNet.ComputerName="k-tsvr2" Then Wscript.quit

Probably should test for case though...

Dim objNet:Set objNet=CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
If lcase(objNet.ComputerName)="k-tsvr2" Then Wscript.quit

Yeah, that will work.  You could also change that to
If lcase(objNet.ComputerName) <> "k-tsvr2" Then
  'Do everything else here
End If

This way you don't force the code to quit if you want to put stuff after this block.
