Returns information about all the Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) reverse lookup records on a DNS server

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:"  & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer &  "\root\MicrosoftDNS")

Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from MicrosoftDNS_WINSRType")

For Each objItem in colItems
    Wscript.Echo "Owner Name: " & objItem.OwnerName
    Wscript.Echo "Cache Timeout: " & objItem.CacheTimeout
    Wscript.Echo "Container Name: " & objItem.ContainerName
    Wscript.Echo "DNS Server Name: " & objItem.DnsServerName
    Wscript.Echo "Domain Name: " & objItem.DomainName
    Wscript.Echo "Lookup Timeout: " & objItem.LookupTimeout
    Wscript.Echo "Mapping Flag: " & objItem.MappingFlag
    Wscript.Echo "Record Class: " & objItem.RecordClass
    Wscript.Echo "Record Data: " & objItem.RecordData
    Wscript.Echo "Result Domain: " & objItem.ResultDomain
    Wscript.Echo "Text Representation: " & objItem.TextRepresentation
    Wscript.Echo "Timestamp: " & objItem.Timestamp
    Wscript.Echo "Time-to-Live: " & objItem.TTL
    Wscript.Echo
Next
      


Sets the primary and secondary WINS server for a TCP/IP-bound network adapter.



On Error Resume Next

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:"    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colNetCards = objWMIService.ExecQuery    ("Select * From Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration Where IPEnabled = True")

For Each objNetCard in colNetCards
    strPrimaryServer = "192.168.1.100"
    strSecondaryServer = "192.168.1.200"
    objNetCard.SetWINSServer strPrimaryServer, strSecondaryServer
Next

Well looking at active registrations in WINS is easy through the GUI... Launch WINS from Admin Tools, expand the server object, right click Active Registrations and Display Records.

Are you clients set up statically?  Or do they get IP addresses through DHCP - because you can set up a scope for a segment of your network, specifying whatever WINS and DNS servers get pushed to the clients...

Use the WINS Tool from Administrative Tools from the Server or install the AdminPak.msi on any client machine.  Connect to the proper WINS server and do a listing.

After some googling, I got one (see the attached) I modified it and tested but it is not updating the WINS primary Ip address.

Please review the attachments and please let me know what's the wrong in that.

@TravisT: thanks for your comments but I was asking about script.
