Hi Experts,

I need to list all computer in AD but our computer are not in the defaut OU or container. How can I query at the right place?
Computers are under \\Domain\Internal\Computers
' Connect to domain and retrieve distinguish name.

	Set objRoot = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE") 

	Set objDomain = GetObject("LDAP://" & objRoot.Get("DefaultNamingContext")) 

	' Build Query to list only computer names from AD.

	strQuery = "Select Name From '" & objDomain.ADsPath & "' where objectClass='computer'"

You can use the script from this article:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/resources/qanda/dec04/hey1207.mspx

Just comment out lines 21, 22, and 24 to return all computers in the domain.

To list all computers under an OU and its sub-OUs use this script:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/resources/qanda/oct05/hey1013.mspx

Change "user" to "computer" in line 15.
