Add WMI Query to Existing VBscript

We have an existing logon Vbscript that writes information to each computer's and user's description field in Active Directory and so far it works great.  We have found the need to add a wmi query of each computer's serial number to the script's output as well.

Here is the current code that we are using:

''POPULATES AD WITH USER LOGON INFO IN DESCRIPTION FIELD
 
Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")

unEscapedUserName = Replace(objSysInfo.UserName, "/", "\/")
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & unEscapedUserName)

Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & Replace(objSysInfo.UserName, "/", "\/"))
Set objComputer = GetObject("LDAP://" & objSysInfo.ComputerName)

 
strMessage1 = " Authenticated on: " & objComputer.CN & " at " & Now & ".  MAC: " & MACAddresses(".")
strMessage2 = " MAC: " & MACAddresses(".") & "." & " Authenticated by: " & objUser.CN & " at " & Now & "."

objUser.Description = strMessage1
objUser.SetInfo

objComputer.Description = strMessage2
objComputer.SetInfo

function MACAddresses(strComputer)
      dim objWMI, colItems, objItem
      dim strMac
      strMac=""  
      Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer &  "\root\CIMV2")  
      Set colItems = objWMI.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration where IPEnabled=TRUE",,48)
      For Each objItem in colItems
            if objItem.MACAddress<>"" then strMac=strMac & objItem.MACAddress & vbCrLf
      Next  
      MACAddresses = strMac
end function

I found the following snippet that queries and returns what we need to add; however it obviously just returns screen output.  

On Error Resume Next
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_BaseBoard")
For Each objItem in colItems
    For Each strOption in objItem.ConfigOptions
    Next
    Wscript.Echo "Serial Number: " & objItem.SerialNumber
Next

How can we add the above wmi query to write the Serial Number to both of the following output lines (in our working logon script)?
strMessage1 = " Authenticated on: " & objComputer.CN & " at " & Now & ".  MAC: " & MACAddresses(".")
strMessage2 = " MAC: " & MACAddresses(".") & "." & " Authenticated by: " & objUser.CN & " at " & Now & "."

I'd like the Serial Number query to be at the end of the strMessage1 line and at the beginning of the strMessage2 line.

Is this possible?

I am sorry but it is seems to me that you have already written the solution.
Do you want to know how to modify your original script?
Try this:

''POPULATES AD WITH USER LOGON INFO IN DESCRIPTION FIELD
 
Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")

unEscapedUserName = Replace(objSysInfo.UserName, "/", "\/")
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & unEscapedUserName)

Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & Replace(objSysInfo.UserName, "/", "\/"))
Set objComputer = GetObject("LDAP://" & objSysInfo.ComputerName)

strSerial= SerialNumber
strMessage1 = " Authenticated on: " & objComputer.CN & " at " & Now & ".  MAC: " & MACAddresses(".") & strSerial
strMessage2 = strSerial & " MAC: " & MACAddresses(".") & "." & " Authenticated by: " & objUser.CN & " at " & Now & "."

objUser.Description = strMessage1
objUser.SetInfo
objComputer.Description = strMessage2
objComputer.SetInfo

function MACAddresses(strComputer)
      dim objWMI, colItems, objItem
      dim strMac
      strMac=""  
      Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer &  "\root\CIMV2")  
      Set colItems = objWMI.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration where IPEnabled=TRUE",,48)
      For Each objItem in colItems
            if objItem.MACAddress<>"" then strMac=strMac & objItem.MACAddress & vbCrLf
      Next  
      MACAddresses = strMac
end function

function SerialNumber
On Error Resume Next
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_BaseBoard")
For Each objItem in colItems
    For Each strOption in objItem.ConfigOptions
    Next
    SerialNumber = "Serial Number: " & objItem.SerialNumber
Next
end function


I hope I have understood your question
