In Active Directory, I would like to run a LDAP query against all computers finding the information on the "networkAddress" attribute.

We record all MAC addresses on computers once joined to the domain.  Now, i would like to have a handy query i can run against it.

Try with that on a DC or workstation with Administrative Tools installed

dsquery * -filter "&(&(objectClass=Computer)(objectCategory=Computer))" -attr sAMAccountName,networkAddress
