Hi Experts,

Can you help me for HTA script for the below query:

dsquery * "CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=nestle,DC=com" -filter "&(objectcategory=site)(name=CHENNAI-SITE)" -attr siteObjectBL description distinguishedName whenCreated whenChanged

The above query will give the result. But my aim to have that done in HTA script.

HTA Script:

Input Will be site name = CHENNAI-SITE
Output should give:

siteObjectBL
description
distinguishedName
whenCreated
whenChanged

HTA script will be great for me.

Any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,
Prem

Oh sorry.  Just change this line:
            strBase = "<LDAP://" & strDNSDomain & ">"

to this
            strBase = "<LDAP://CN=Sites,CN=Configuration," & strDNSDomain & ">"


Regards,

Rob.

Rob,

Additionally, instead of drop down box for site in the script..

Please could you help me to enter the site name manually to trigger the output in the script...??

Thanks,
Prem
