hello,

Is there a VBScript to remove the WINS entries for a list of servers and create a log as well? I have about 700 servers and need to remove all wins entries from them.

Thanks,
lal_gs

to remove wins entries from all servers, add txt file with server names, one on each line and run the script with loop:
On Error Resume Next
strWINSPrimaryServer = "192.168.0.1"
strWINSSecondaryServer = "192.168.0.2"

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set listFile = fso.OpenTextFile("list_server.txt")
do while not listFile.AtEndOfStream 
    strComputer =  listFile.ReadLine()

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
 & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colNicConfigs = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
 ("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE IPEnabled = True")
 
WScript.Echo VbCrLf & "Host Name: " & strComputer & VbCrLf & _
 "  Attempting to set WINS primary and secondary servers ..."
 
For Each objNicConfig In colNicConfigs
  WScript.Echo VbCrLf & _
   "  Network Adapter " & objNicConfig.Index & VbCrLf & _
   "    " & objNicConfig.Description
  intSetWINSServer = objNicConfig.SetWINSServer(strWINSPrimaryServer, _
   strWINSSecondaryServer)
  If intSetWINSServer = 0 Then
    WScript.Echo "    Successfully set WINS servers."
  ElseIf intSetWINSServer = 1 Then
    WScript.Echo "    Successfully set WINS servers." & _
     VbCrLf & "    Must reboot."
  Else
    WScript.Echo "    Unable to set WINS servers."
  End If
Next
 
WScript.Echo VbCrLf & String(80, "-")
 
Set colNicConfigs = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
 ("SELECT * FROM Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WHERE IPEnabled = True")
 
For Each objNicConfig In colNicConfigs
  WScript.Echo VbCrLf & _
   "  Network Adapter " & objNicConfig.Index & VbCrLf & _
   "    " & objNicConfig.Description
  WScript.Echo "    Primary WINS Server: " & objNicConfig.WINSPrimaryServer
  WScript.Echo "    Secondary WINS Server: " & _
   objNicConfig.WINSSecondaryServer
Next

Thank you very much.

Is there a way to include a log file for this script so that we can find out on which servers this has been applied?

Thank you,
