I want to do a connection check on all the computers in our computer OU, I've been using Solarwinds ping sweep to ping a range of IPs, but when I do this I have to check all the IPs that don't reply against all the computers in our OU and its time consuming, I'd like to do a ping/connection check to only computers in our OU, does anyone know a way to do this (script, etc..) I'd prefer not to have to buy a utility for this.
Server 2003, XP Pro network environment.
It does not have to be a ping, but some way to checking if the computers are connected to the network. i.e. maybe exporting all computes in the OU to a file and using a script that will point to the exported file that will ping every computers in the file.
