Login Script for Machine Name and Network Info

I would like a login scrip that can run on Windows XP and Windows Vista, for standard users (no admin access, not power users), that can write back to a directory on the network to a .txt file.  I would like this script to create a .txt file, or other format (.csv?), that creates the file and names it by the login name.  Such as, if the name is John Doe, it is John Doe.csv/.txt

Within the file, log the computer name that they login to.  I would also like to know if the network card is set to DHCP or Static.  If Static, provide the network address information, as well as the MAC address of the network card.

This can be .bat or .vbs - thanks

change this line to share path (where save log files)

strShare = "\\server\share\"

Set objnet = CreateObject("wscript.network")
strShare = "\\server\share\"
strLog = strShare & objnet.UserName & ".txt"
Set objfso = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
Set objlog = objfso.CreateTextFile(strLog,True)
 
 
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
 
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE IPEnabled = True")
 
For Each objItem in colItems
objlog.WriteLine objnet.ComputerName & ": DHCP Enabled: " & objItem.DHCPEnabled & vbnewline
    if objItem.DHCPEnabled = false Then
       objlog.WriteLine objItem.MACAddress
       For Each strAddress in objItem.IPAddress
         objlog.WriteLine strAddress & vbcrlf
       Next
    End If
Next

That's great, worked almost perfect except doesn't seem to log MAC address.  Not a big deal though as I have other methods of getting that.

One last request, can I get the script to append to the file?  Such as, when John Doe logs into ComputerA, and then Computer B, I want the file to show both.  I don't need every instance of ComputerA or ComputerB, just to know that he has logged into those machines, and the corresponding DHCP status.

hey

the script will log mac address as you requested to only static addresses (tested)
if you want to log the mac in any case

after line 16 add this line

objlog.WriteLine "Mac Address: " &  objItem.MACAddress

any way

i changed the script to check if a log file with the user all ready exist if yes it will open it and add a new section to the current computer
Set objfso = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
Set objnet = CreateObject("wscript.network")
strShare = "\\server\share\"
strLog = strShare & objnet.UserName & ".txt"
If objfso.FileExists(strLog) Then
Const ForAppend = 8 
Set objlog = objfso.OpenTextFile(strLog,ForAppend)
Else
Set objlog = objfso.CreateTextFile(strLog,True)
End If
 
 
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
 
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE IPEnabled = True")
 
For Each objItem in colItems
objlog.WriteLine objnet.ComputerName & ": DHCP Enabled: " & objItem.DHCPEnabled & vbnewline
    if objItem.DHCPEnabled = false Then
       objlog.WriteLine objItem.MACAddress
       For Each strAddress in objItem.IPAddress
         objlog.WriteLine strAddress & vbcrlf
       Next
    End If
