I have a vbscript to retrieve mailbox information, when I retrieve the information it is in the following format 20090716080200.000312+*** , I need to convert it to MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS format.

Thank You

Dim SWBemlocator

Dim objWMIService

Dim colItems

Dim objFSO

Dim objFile

strTitle="Mailbox Report"

strComputer = InputBox("What Exchange server do you want to check?",strTitle,"TANK")

UserName = ""

Password = ""

strLog="MailboxReport.csv"

Set objFSO=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set objFile=objFSO.CreateTextFile(strLog,True)
 

'This query will fail with the Exchange WMI Provider

'strQuery="Select ServerName,StorageGroupName,StoreName,MailboxDisplayName,Size,TotalItems from Exchange_Mailbox"

strQuery="Select * from Exchange_Mailbox"

objFile.WriteLine "Server,StorageGroup,MailStore,User,Size(KB),TotalItems,LastLogonTime,LastLogoffTime"

WScript.Echo "Examining " & strComputer

Set SWBemlocator = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemLocator")

Set objWMIService = SWBemlocator.ConnectServer(strComputer,"\root\MicrosoftExchangeV2",UserName,Password)

Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery(strQuery,,48)
 

For Each objItem in colItems

	objFile.writeline objItem.ServerName & "," & objItem.StorageGroupName &_ 

	"," & objItem.StoreName & "," & Chr(34) &objItem.MailboxDisplayName & Chr(34) &_

	"," & objItem.Size & "," & objItem.TotalItems & "," & Chr(34) & objItem.LastLogonTime & Chr(34) & "," & Chr(34) & objItem.LastLogoffTime & Chr(34)

	

	'uncomment if you want to write to the screen

	'WScript.echo objItem.ServerName & "," &objItem.StorageGroupName &_

	'"," & objItem.StoreName & "," & CHR(34) & objItem.MailboxDisplayName & Chr(34) &_

	'"," & objItem.Size & "," & objItem.TotalItems

Next
 

objFile.close
 

WScript.Echo "See " & strLog & " for results."

WScript.Echo convertDate("20090716080200.000312")
 

Function convertDate(sInputDate)
 

	sYear  	 = Left(sInputDate,4)

	sMonth 	 = Mid(sInputDate,5,2)

	sDay   	 = Mid(sInputDate,7,2)

	sHour  	 = Mid(sInputDate,9,2)

	sMin  	 = Mid(sInputDate,11,2)

	sSeconds = Mid(sInputDate,13,2)
 

	convertDate = sMonth &"/"& sDay &"/"& sYear &" "& sHour &":"& sMin &":" &sSeconds
 

End Function

Alan Thank You for the script, but the time is offset by GMT. The above time is +6 so I have to -6 based on GMT. So how do I get the correct time of local server ?

The time of the "input date" or the system date is?

OK, I think I've figured it out.
I originally thought it was just a matter of adding or subtracting 6 from the sHour variable but that wouldnt work if the hours were close to the next or previous day.
So in the script I posted, I was just putting the date time string out as a string.  Now we need to convert it to an actual date so that we can then add (or subtract) 6 hours from it using the dateadd function.
The problem is that the system locale might cause your input date to be incorrect (UK vs US formats).
Have a look at below and see if it makes sense.
 

WScript.Echo convertDate("20090716200200.000312")
 

Function convertDate(sInputDate)
 

	Dim sYear, sMonth, sDay, sHour, sMin, sSeconds

	Dim sDateString, sDate, sNewDate
 

	Const cGMTOffset = -6

	

	sYear  	 = Left(sInputDate,4)

	sMonth 	 = Mid(sInputDate,5,2)

	sDay   	 = Mid(sInputDate,7,2)

	sHour  	 = Mid(sInputDate,9,2)

	sMin  	 = Mid(sInputDate,11,2)

	sSeconds = Mid(sInputDate,13,2)
 

	'sDateString = sMonth &"/"& sDay &"/"& sYear &" "& sHour &":"& sMin &":" &sSeconds 'US Format

	sDateString = sDay &"/"& sMonth &"/"& sYear &" "& sHour &":"& sMin &":" &sSeconds 'UK Format

	

	sDate = CDate(sDateString)

	sNewDate = DateAdd("h",cGMTOffset,sDate)

	

	convertDate = FormatDateTime(sNewDate,0)
 

End Function

Thank You Alan, I will award the points but I have one last query, from the server time can we dynamically get the cGMTOffset, as I will be querying servers across the globe I cannot have a constant cGmtOffset.

I had to google that one.
I have found the script below and it seems to work, however my TZ is set to GMT so it's reporting 0.  I therefore dont know exactly what the output is going to look like.  Maybe you can try this script in isolation and tell me what you get?
If it's in minutes, we will need to change the parameter in the dateadd function.

wscript.Echo getTimeOffset
 

Function getTimeOffset
 

	strComputer = "."

	

	Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

	

	Set colTime = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * From Win32_TimeZone")

	

	For Each objTime in colTime

	    intBias = objTime.Bias

	Next

	

	getTimeOffset = intBias

	

End Function

Raju1706:
As the output is in minutes, you need to change the line in the convertDate Function to
sNewDate = DateAdd("n",cGMTOffset,sDate)
Note the "n" instead of "h", this tells it you want to add/subtract minutes instead of hours.
I assume you have figured out how to use all these component functions together?
Cheers,
Alan
