vbscript help

I have created this script that will reside on the server, it will run from a server account.  The point of this script is that it will be a schedule task, it will check the txt file every 15 minutes and if it the file has a computer name it will check against active directory...if it finds it..it will install McAfee, after its done it it reverts back the original computers.txt file to blank until some one puts another computer name on it again....
MY question is,,,is this correct what do i need to fix it and if some one could help me out on log files such as after its done it creates a text file of the out put code..also i was wondering if i don't have permissions to the server to run as a share, is there a way to copy the file to the local machine and execute it from there....any help would be appreciated...

'This will check Active Directory for a computer

Const ForReading = 1

Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection

objCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 1000

objCommand.Properties("Searchscope") = ADS_SCOPE_SUBTREE

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\Scripts\Computers.txt")

Do Until objFile.AtEndOfStream
    strComputer = objFile.ReadLine
    objCommand.CommandText = "SELECT Name FROM 'LDAP://dc=microsoft,dc=contoso,dc=com' " & _
        "WHERE objectCategory='computer' AND Name = '" & strComputer & "'"
    Set objRecordset = objCommand.Execute
    If objRecordset.RecordCount = 0 Then
        Wscript.Echo strComputer & " does not exist."
        'Wscript.Echo strComputer & " is in Active Directory."
       Wscript.Echo "ReturnValue = " & ReturnValue
    End If

Going down the script route:
You are going to need to make sure you're installing the right version / architecture of McAfee for the machine.  It looks like you're assuming it's Windows and relying on the executable to determine 32/64bit architecture.  
Are you also planning to notify the McAfee guys when you do install a new machine? Are you sure that the new machine will be placed in the right "group" for policy administration?
Adding in a log file is easy, just requires you to have a text file you append to and add in your logs between lines of code.  A simple solution would be to create a simple function at the bottom of your script that takes an input, which is the log text, and outputs to a file.  You can build on that later if need be
You may want to include email notification when your install fails for whatever reason (can't access file share, can't access remote machine etc etc)
I'm sure there's other issues you'll come across going down this path that really ePO does for you... sorry to bang on about it but I don't see the point in reinventing the wheel, unless I"m missing something??

Are you running McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator?  This should remove the need for your scripts

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

It did not make anysense..and the script is not completed
RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
Sorry I wasn't notified with your response. What are you trying to do other than deploying the agent etc?
erwin_mirandaAuthor Commented:
Other than automate the process and not have a need for the McAfee policy administrators or myself have to do..nothing...but again if you want the points, they are yours..u responded.
RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
See the confusing thing for me is, epo should automatically deploy when a new machine appears in active directory. In other words you should not have to do anything anyway.
I'd like to answer this properly before getting any points ;-)
RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
Do you have ad sync on?
erwin_mirandaAuthor Commented:
Okay...come to find out and apparently I am not a McAfee Admin...the people that are Mcafee Admin do not administrative priviliges..so I need the script..or help with it..
RobOwner (Aidellio)Commented:
Ok I understand your predicament. Now I'm not trying to be difficult but it seems you are trying to mimic what epo does. My concern it's with ongoing Maintenance. Do the agents automatically register with epo after installing using your script?
Instead of giving admin permissions to the McAfee guys, work with them to set up an automated task and enter your credentials (or a specific admin one set up by you for this purpose) and save the username And hidden password as part of the task. It's that a viable option?
More than happy to help with the script but I wanted us clear on the consequences of doing so.
