OK. here is the issue. I need a script to query 12k computers for a certain printer server. Then, if you have the certain print server exsists (\\PRINTSVRCC01) then I want it to write the information to a .csv file located on a network share. \\myserver\share\printresults.csv. The information should include the printer server name, print queue and their host name.

Below is a script that I am starting but could use some help. I am new to vb and not sure how to resolve this.



strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colInstalledPrinters =  objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from Win32_Printer")

For Each objPrinter in colInstalledPrinters
    Wscript.Echo "Name: " & objPrinter.Name
    Wscript.Echo "Location: " & objPrinter.Location
    Wscript.Echo "Default: " & objPrinter.Default
   Next

Const ForAppending = 8

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile _
    ("\\myserver\share\printresults.csv", ForAppending, True)

Set objWMIService=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & _
    strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service")

For Each objService in colServices    
    objTextFile.WriteLine(objService.DisplayName & vbTab & _
        objService.State)
Next
objTextFile.Close

Hi, see how this code goes.

Regards,

Rob.

Const ForAppending = 8
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set objPrinters = objNetwork.EnumPrinterConnections

strPrintServer = "\\YourPrintServer\"

For i = 0 To objPrinters.Count - 1 Step 2
	If LCase(Left(objPrinters(i + 1), Len(strPrintServer))) = LCase(strPrintServer) Then
		Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("\\myserver\share\printresults_" & objNetwork.ComputerName & ".csv", ForAppending, True)
		objTextFile.WriteLine """" & objNetwork.ComputerName & """,""" & strPrintServer & """,""" & Replace(objPrinters(i + 1), strPrintServer, "", 1, -1, vbTextCompare) & """"
		objTextFile.Close
	End If
Next
