We would like to be able to run a VBS script to tell us who is a member of the administrators group on a remote machine.

I can modify it to run on several computers, I just can't find the code tidbit that will tell me where to look for that information.

Scriptomatic does not return useful information, rather it returns a lot of information about the local accounts and then a bunch of info about what looks like every account on the domain. (see below)

I will probably be out until Monday for replying to questions.

Thanks in advance!

This should work...
arrComputers = Array("ComputerA", "ComputerB") 'etc...
 
For Each PC in arrComputers
  Set objAdmin = GetObject("WinNT://" & PC & "/Administrators")
  For Each objUser in objAdmin.Members
    wscript.echo objUser.Name
  Next
Next

Wow, that was fast!
May I ask what you use as a reference for looking up items such as this?
I only have scriptomatic as a guide and haven't found anything particularly user friendly on the web (the microsoft developer's site is not very useful)
Thanks again!

Happened to have that one in my toolkit.
I have so many scripts stored across about 5 different systems, I can usually find what I'm looking for by searching for a keyword.
4guysfromrolla, w3schools and the hey scripting guys at microsoft are some of my favorite resources though...

Thanx for the grade. :^)
