List ODBC System DSN for all machines in Domain

Hi EE,

I need some help with a excel vba script to list all System DSN for every machine in my domain.

i know they are stored in the registry here.


So the script is going to have to find all machines and then loop and read the registry.

it has  got me banging my head of the desk so any help will be a great help.

Thank you

Sub WorkWithObject(oContainer)
Dim oADObject
For Each oADObject in oContainer
  Select Case oADObject.Class
   Case "computer"
    'oADObject represents a COMPUTER object;
    'do something with it
    Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:{inpersonationlevel=impersonate}!\\"&oADObject.Name&"\root\default:StdRegProv")
    objReg.EnumValues &H80000002,"SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC Data Sources",arrValueNames,sType
    For i=0 to UBound(arrValueNames)
                ValueName = arrValueNames(i)
                objReg.GetStringValue &H80000002,"SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC Data Sources",ValueName,sValue
                WScript.Echo oADObject.Name&vbTab&ValueName&vbTab&sValue
  End select
End Sub
There is code that retrieves the System ODBC settings from computers in computers.txt if you want to try it out.
