Hi,
I need some help for a script which removes a odbc system-dsn.
I have a large number of xp-workstations connected to a sql-server in a new 2008 domain.
I would like to remove the old system-dsn in the user-pc's via a script.
Any Ideas?

Hi michael,

Use the attached script, but change ##ODBC NAME## to the name you've given the ODBC connection.

Cheers,

Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
 
strComputer = "."
 
Set objReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & _ 
    strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
 
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\##ODBC NAME##"
objReg.DeleteKey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKeyPath
 
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources"
strValueName = "##ODBC NAME##"
objReg.DeleteValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath,strValueName
