I was using Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_System - SystemUpTime to determing how long a server had been online, unfortunately that doesn't exist in Server 2000.  So, I decided to use Win32_PerfRawData_PerfOS_System.  However, the number is like 128697836904361421 and I have no idea how to convert that to anything useful.  I did discover it's uINT64, but that doesn't help me any...

How do I make this useful? What kind of math do I need to convert it to seconds?

You can try this code to see if it fits your needs.  

I check the LastBootTime of the Win32_OperatingSystem object to get the date.  From there, I check the OS to see if it is running Windows 2000.  If so, the script uses the function "ConvWMI2VBS" to convert the date while other systems are converted using the function "WMIDateStringToDate"
'http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Visual_Basic/VB_Script/Q__23859663.html
 
strSrv = "SERVERNAME"
set objSvc = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}//" & StrSrv & "/root/cimv2")
set objRet=objSvc.InstancesOf("win32_OperatingSystem")
for each item in objRet
    if item.LastBootUpTime <> "" then
        if InStr(item.caption, "2000") then
            LastBootTime = ConvWMI2VBS(item.LastBootUpTime)
        else
            LastBootTime = WMIDateStringToDate(item.LastBootUpTime)
        end if
    else
        LastBootTime = "The script was unable to check the last known boot time."
    end if
next
 
wscript.echo LastBootTime
 
'******************************
'* Convert Date Function *
'******************************
 
Function ConvWMI2VBS(strDate)
    'will return mm/dd/yyyy
    Set objSWbemDateTime = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemDateTime")
    objSWbemDateTime.Value = strDate
    ConvWMI2VBS = objSWbemDateTime.GetVarDate(False)
End Function
 
Function WMIDateStringToDate(dtmBootup)
    'will return mm/dd/yyyy
    WMIDateStringToDate = CDate(Mid(dtmBootup, 7, 2) & "/" & Mid(dtmBootup, 5, 2) & "/" & Left(dtmBootup, 4) & " " & Mid (dtmBootup, 9, 2) & ":" & Mid(dtmBootup, 11, 2) & ":" & Mid(dtmBootup, 13, 2))
End Function

Other than the fact that the month/day were switched on the 2003 servers, this worked perfectly!  :)
