Grabbing the ip address instead of computer name

Hi guys,

I have the following batch file called check_services.bat

Syntax:

check_services.bat <computername>

Currently, what happens is that the computer name is used for the sc command part, for example:

sc \\%1 query McAfeeFramework

However, what I want to do is the following:

check_services.bat <computername>

then find out the ip address of the computername entered, and use the ip address for

sc \\%1 query McAfeeFramework
sc \\%1 query EnterceptAgent
sc \\%1 query AeXNSClient
sc \\%1 query McShield

instead of %1 (which is the computer name)

Any help greatly appreciated.

check_services.bat <computername>

@echo off
@echo Checking the following 4 services on a machine %1 .....
 
rem check_services.bat <computername>
ping -n 1 %1 >nul 2>&1
if %errorlevel%==0 (
   echo %1: Up
) else (
   echo %1: Down
)
 
sc \\%1 query McAfeeFramework
sc \\%1 query EnterceptAgent
sc \\%1 query AeXNSClient
sc \\%1 query McShield

HI x66_x72_x65_x65,
Mate that WORKS brilliantly.
I dont know if i can ask this of you, but:

Currently, this works against a given computer name, for example:

script.bat <computername>

Is it possible somehow to modify this, so that:

1) You could run the script against a list of computers in a text file?
eg.
script.bat c:\computers.txt

The following is what you're looking for...

This script also writes a log to availability.txt, showing hostname, ip address, and up/down state.


@echo off
if [%1]==[] (
echo useage: script [computers.txt]
echo         computers.txt contains hostname or ip address, one per line.
goto :eof
)
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
for /f %%c in (%1) do (
  call :GETINFO %%c
  echo %%c [!ip!]: !Availability!>>availability.txt
)
goto :eof
 
:GETINFO
if [%1]==[] goto :eof
Set Availability=
for /f "tokens=2 delims=[]" %%a in ('ping %1 -n 1 ^| find "["') do set ip=%%a
ping %ip% -n 2 -w 100 >nul 2>&1  
If %errorlevel%==1 goto DOWN
 
echo %1 [%ip%]: Up
Set Availability=Up
sc \\%ip% query McAfeeFramework
sc \\%ip% query EnterceptAgent
sc \\%ip% query AeXNSClient
sc \\%ip% query McShield
goto :eof
 
:DOWN
echo %1 [%ip%]: Down
Set Availability=Down

Hi x66_x72_x65_x65,
Champion.
x66_x72_x65_x65,
The output of running your latest great script is:

script.bat computers.txt
where computers.txt (serverA is pingable, serverB is not)
serverA
serverB
serverA

Output is:

script.bat computers.txt

serverA [10.1.2.3]: Up
serverB [10.1.2.3]: Up
serverA [10.1.2.3]: Up

and

availability.txt

serverA [10.1.2.3]: Up
serverB [10.1.2.3]: Up
serverA [10.1.2.3]: Up

So,

Somehow, it is returning the same ip address for every computer listed in computers.txt, and reporting the Availability as Up, even though it is Down.

Forgot to clear the variable... try this.

@echo off
if [%1]==[] (
echo useage: script [computers.txt]
echo         computers.txt contains hostname or ip address, one per line.
goto :eof
)
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
for /f %%c in (%1) do (
  call :GETINFO %%c
  echo %%c [%ip%]: !Availability!>>availability.txt
)
goto :eof
 
:GETINFO
if [%1]==[] goto :eof
Set Availability=
for /f "tokens=2 delims=[]" %%a in ('ping %1 -n 1 -w 1000 ^| find "["') do (
set ip=%%a
set p=Checking the following 4 services on a machine %1 [%%a] .....
)
ping %ip% -n 2 -w 100 >nul 2>&1  
If %errorlevel%==1 goto DOWN
 
echo %1 [%ip%]: Up
Set Availability=Up
title %p% & echo %p%
sc \\%ip% query McAfeeFramework
sc \\%ip% query EnterceptAgent
sc \\%ip% query AeXNSClient
sc \\%ip% query McShield
set ip= & set p=
goto :eof
 
:DOWN
echo %1 [%ip%]: Down
Set Availability=Down
set ip= & set p=

Hi mate,
Getting closer :>)

script.bat computers.txt

serverA [10.1.2.3]: Up
serverB [10.83.45.2 ]: Down
serverA [10.1.2.3]: Up

and

availability.txt

serverA [10.1.2.3]: Up
serverB  [10.1.2.3]: Down
serverA [10.1.2.3]: Up

In the command window, the offline machine is reporting correctly, but in availability.txt, it is taking on the value of serverA for its ip address

Okay, this should do it...


@echo off
if [%1]==[] (
echo useage: script [computers.txt]
echo         computers.txt contains hostname or ip address, one per line.
goto :eof
)
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
for /f %%c in (%1) do (
  call :GETINFO %%c
  echo %%c [!ip!]: !Availability!>>availability.txt
  set ip= & set p=
)
goto :eof
 
:GETINFO
if [%1]==[] goto :eof
Set Availability=
for /f "tokens=2 delims=[]" %%a in ('ping %1 -n 1 -w 1000 ^| find "["') do (
set ip=%%a
set p=Checking the following 4 services on a machine %1 [%%a] .....
)
ping %ip% -n 2 -w 100 >nul 2>&1  
If %errorlevel%==1 goto DOWN
 
echo %1 [%ip%]: Up
Set Availability=Up
title %p% & echo %p%
sc \\%ip% query McAfeeFramework
sc \\%ip% query EnterceptAgent
sc \\%ip% query AeXNSClient
sc \\%ip% query McShield
goto :eof
 
:DOWN
echo %1 [%ip%]: Down
Set Availability=Down
