I would like to be able to use a vbscript to send a broadcast message to all machines on the domain. I am not able to turn on the messaging service. I understand that MSG.exe will work but I am unable to get it to send to any/all computers in the domain. I have a mixture of clients (XP, Vista and Win 7, Server 2000, Server 2003 and Server 2008)
I would think that one could get the script to parse the computer names from LDAP. I am not sure if there need to be exceptions in the firewall for MSG to work or maybe there is just a beteer overall solution out there.
At this point any suggestions are welcome.
