Alter Script

Hey,

How do I edit the attached script to read from a text file of servers to query?

At the moment it's run on a instance of per server basis (a pop up box appears and the server name is entered). We have a plethora of servers that this needs to be run on.

All credit for this script goes to

Script that I would like some advice on how to edit.

Instead of reading per server, I would like it to read from a list of server names in  a text file.

Hi, I've added an argument of -i for the input file.  I'm not sure I've made that correct, but we'll see how it goes.  It should work as
-i:Computers.txt

with Computers.txt being in the same folder, but I haven't tested it.

Regards,

Rob.

Thanks but that didn't work. Comes up with an error --The remote server machine does not exist.

Hi MattyS82,

I have added additional error checking to continue scanning other machines if one cannot be connected to.  This won't solve your connectivity problem with that particular machine however.  When you get "The remote server machine does not exist." this means that it is either offline, the firewall is blocking it, there are WMI issues, or access may be denied.

This is the command I ran it with:
cscript.exe sydi-server.vbs -ws -rk -i"servers.txt"

Regards,

Rob.
