Returning a list of all active directory sites

Dear everyone,
I hope this finds you all well and can assist :>)

We are looking t:

1) extracting a list of all active directory site names along with their
2) site descriptions
3) domain controllers for each site

Something like the following:

-------------------------------------- sites.csv
<site>, <siteDescription>, <domainControllerName>
siteA, Tokyo, jpdc

Any help greatly appreciated.

This VBScript should do what you want:
Option Explicit

Dim objFSO, objFile, objRootDSE, objSitesContainer, objSite, objServer
Dim strConfigurationNC, strSitesContainer, strSiteName, strSiteDescription, strServerPath
Dim colServers
Const strFilePath = "C:\ADSitesServers.csv"

Set objFSO = Createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strFilePath, 2, True)
objFile.WriteLine "Site Name,Site Description,DC Name"

Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")

strConfigurationNC = objRootDSE.Get("configurationNamingContext")

strSitesContainer = "LDAP://cn=Sites," & strConfigurationNC

Set objSitesContainer = GetObject(strSitesContainer)
objSitesContainer.Filter = Array("site")

For Each objSite In objSitesContainer
	strSiteName = objSite.Name
	strSiteDescription = objSite.Description
	strServerPath = "LDAP://cn=Servers," & strSiteName & ",cn=Sites," & strConfigurationNC
	Set colServers = GetObject(strServerPath)
	For Each objServer In colServers
		objFile.WriteLine objSite.CN & "," & strSiteDescription & "," & objServer.CN


Open in new window

Modify the constant on line 6 which contains the path of the output file to where you want it to save. Then save the file with a .vbs extension and run it.
