Paste the script below into a text file with a .cmd extension.  Run it either from a 2003 server or a workstation with the Administration Tools installed.  It will create a list named computerlist.txt in the same directory.


@echo off

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
 

for /F %%G in ('dsquery computer -o samid') do (

 set comp=%%~G1

 echo !comp:$=! >> computerlist.txt

)

Open in new window

You can just do an export from your computers OU in Active Directory User and Computers and save it out to a text file if you like.
