Hi bsharath, Do you have PowerShell on at least one machine? The attached script I believe will do what you want. Bill.
# Returns 0 if ping succeeded, non-zero for failure
function test-iphost($iphost) {
  $status = get-wmiobject -class Win32_PingStatus `
    -namespace root/cimv2 -property PrimaryAddressResolutionStatus,StatusCode `
    -filter "Address='$iphost'"
  if ($status.PrimaryAddressResolutionStatus -ne 0) {
    $status.PrimaryAddressResolutionStatus
  }
  else {
    $status.StatusCode
  }
}
 
# Put the service names you want to check for in this array
$services = @("tmlisten",
              "OfcPfwSvc",
              "ntrtscan")
 
# The script assumes a list of computer names is in Computers.txt
if (-not (test-path "Computers.txt")) {
  "Computers.txt file not found"
  exit
} else {
  $computers = get-content "Computers.txt"
}
 
# You can customize the report file's name here
$reportfile = "ServiceStatusReport.csv"
 
# Output the CSV header
$csvheader = '"Computer"'
$services | foreach-object { $csvheader += (',"' + $_ + '"') }
$csvheader | out-file $reportfile -force -encoding ASCII
 
foreach ($computer in $computers) {
  write-host -nonewline "Processing $computer..."
  $output = ('"' + $computer + '"')
  if ((test-iphost $computer) -eq 0) {
    $services | foreach-object {
      $output += (',"' + ((get-wmiobject Win32_Service -computer $computer `
        -namespace root/cimv2 -property State -filter "Name='$_'").State) +
        '"')
    }
  } else {
    $output += ',"Unable to connect"'
  }
  $output | out-file $reportfile -append -encoding ASCII
  write-host "done."
}
 
"Finished. See $reportfile for results."

Look at the following line, should the '|' (pipe symbol) be preceeded with a '^' (ceret sign)?

>>    PING -n 1 -w 1000 %%c|Find /I "TTL" >NUL

    PING -n 1 -w 1000 %%c^|Find /I "TTL" >NUL

Hi bsharath, do you have PowerShell installed on at least one machine? If so, copy this script to that machine, rename it to .ps1, start PowerShell, and run the script from the PowerShell prompt. Bill.

Hi bsharath, that error code usually means that WMI can't connect to a computer. One common cause is the Windows firewall. If the computer's firewall does not allow the WMI connection, then naturally you will get errors. Knowledge base article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/875605 should help you with this. Bill.
