VBSCRIPT: Perform Reverse NSLookup by computer's own ip.

I need to figure out a way to perform a reverse NS lookup by the computer's ip the script is running on. I also need to get the value minus the hostname from the lookup.

So nslookup

I need to grab the contoso1.contso.com and store it in a constant/variable.

I can't for the life of me figure this one out, can anyone help. I would like to do this in VB/VBscript if possible.

Here's my attempt, using code adapted from these articles:

It should store the domain name in the variable strResult.

On Error Resume Next

strComputer = "."
strIP = ""

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * From Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration Where IPEnabled = True")

For Each objItem in colItems
    For Each objAddress in objItem.IPAddress
        arrIPAddress = Split(objAddress, ".")
        If arrIPAddress(0) <> 0 AND arrIPAddress(0) <> 169 Then
            strAddress = objAddress
            Exit For
        End If
    Exit For

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objWshScriptExec = objShell.Exec("nslookup " & strIP)
Set objStdOut = objWshScriptExec.StdOut

While Not objStdOut.AtEndOfStream
   strLine = objStdOut.ReadLine
   If InStr(strLine,"Name:") Then
            arrLine = Split(strLine,".")
            intLimit = UBound(arrLine)
            For i = 1 To intLimit
                  strResult = strResult & arrLine(i)
                  If Not i = intLimit Then
                        strResult = strResult & "."
                  End If
    End If
