Is there a script or prog which can says if a sever is belong to a domain in AD?

For exemple, I have a list of servers in a file and would like to know in which domain they are belong in AD.

Thank you.

Found this code at http://blog.dotsmart.net/2009/03/11/getting-a-machine%E2%80%99s-netbios-domain-name-in-csharp/ and modified it to take machine name as input parameter. Invoke the NetUtil.GetMachineNetBiosDomain("machinename"); from your code.

Hope that helps.

class NetUtil
{
    [DllImport("netapi32.dll", CharSet = CharSet.Auto)]
    static extern int NetWkstaGetInfo(string server,
        int level,
        out IntPtr info);

    [DllImport("netapi32.dll")]
    static extern int NetApiBufferFree(IntPtr pBuf);

    [StructLayout(LayoutKind.Sequential, CharSet = CharSet.Auto)]
    class WKSTA_INFO_100
    {
        public int wki100_platform_id;
        [MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.LPWStr)]
        public string wki100_computername;
        [MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.LPWStr)]
        public string wki100_langroup;
        public int wki100_ver_major;
        public int wki100_ver_minor;
    }

    public static string GetMachineNetBiosDomain(string machineName)
    {
        IntPtr pBuffer = IntPtr.Zero;

        WKSTA_INFO_100 info;
        int retval = NetWkstaGetInfo(machineName, 100, out pBuffer);
        if (retval != 0)
            throw new Win32Exception(retval);

        info = (WKSTA_INFO_100)Marshal.PtrToStructure(pBuffer, typeof(WKSTA_INFO_100));
        string domainName = info.wki100_langroup;
        NetApiBufferFree(pBuffer);
        return domainName;
    }
}

Sorry, haven't noticed that you wanted a VB script. This is a C# implementation. There should be an equivalent implementation in VB.

Thanks,

To determine whether a given computer in a list of computers is an active member of a given domain you can invoke
for /f %i in (serverfile.txt) do net view /domain:mydomain %i

Open in new window

The response is either a list of available shares which verifies membership, or a message that the network path was not found which suggests non-membership or out-of-service.

I realize this isn't exactly the solution you wanted, but it may be useful.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Try with PowerShell (Quest cmdlets for 2003 AD)
http://www.quest.com/powershell/activeroles-server.aspx

Create text file with servers on C-Drive (one server name per line) and run in PowerShell

 
Get-Content c:\servers.txt | ForEach-Object {Get-QADComputer $_ | Select name,domain | Export-CSV c:\output.csv}

Open in new window

Krzysztof

yes, but you need to change a little bit search node

 
Get-Content c:\servers.txt | ForEach-Object {Get-QADComputer -SearchRoot "dc=domain,dc=com" $_ | Select name,domain | Export-CSV c:\output_DomainName.csv}

Open in new window


where dc=domain,dc=com is FQDN of your domain and you need to specify output file name

Yes, because you need to run this script for each domain separately :) So, text file with server must be from the same domain :)
