Hi

The code below should do the trick, just create a text file on you C: called ListOfPCs.txt with each PC on it's own line and this script will work.

Remember to run this as a Domain Admin or else you won't be able to query the PC remotely.

Const ForReading = 1
Const ForWriting = 2

On Error Resume Next

Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set oFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\ListOfPCs.txt", ForReading)

Do Until oFile.AtEndOfStream
	sComputer = oFile.ReadLine
	sTxt = sTxt & "--" & sComputer & "--" & vbCRLF
	Set oGroup = GetObject("WinNT://" & sComputer & "/Administrators,group")
	For Each oUser in oGroup.Members
		sTxt = sTxt & oUser.Name & vbCRLF
	Next
	sTxt = sTxt & "----------"
Loop

Set oTextFile = oFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\ListOfPCs-Results.txt", ForWriting, True)
oTextFile.WriteLine(sTxt)
oTextFile.Close

Set oFSO = Nothing
Set oFile = Nothing
Set oGroup = Nothing

WScript.Quit

Open in new window

Sorry Friday fingers in operation

Replace this line
Set oFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\ListOfPCs.txt", ForReading)


With this
Set oFile = oFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\ListOfPCs.txt", ForReading)

Code tested.

Whats this?

Toggle HighlightingOpen in New WindowSelect All

Once the script hits WScript.Quit it will finish, remove the above mentioned line.

Just wondering.....is there a way to add a progress bar or something to the script? When you do a couple thousand PC's at once the screen remains blank.....Thanks again.

The only real way to do that effectivly is to run the script using cscript and add a Wscript.Echo in there.

Something like:

Do Until oFile.AtEndOfStream
      sComputer = oFile.ReadLine
      sTxt = sTxt & "--" & sComputer & "--" & vbCRLF
      Set oGroup = GetObject("WinNT://" & sComputer & "/Administrators,group")
      For Each oUser in oGroup.Members
            sTxt = sTxt & oUser.Name & vbCRLF
      Next
      sTxt = sTxt & "----------"
      Wscript.Echo sComputer
Loop


If you add this then just double click the file it will constantly pop up a window with the computer name has just completed and not continue until you select OK.

I use VBSEdit which allows you to run scripts as cscript which outputs to a window.

If you want to run the script in script from a command window just type in cscript C:\scriptname.vbs
