Hello,

I have the following batch file that calls up powershell, it works wonderfully. I now need to modify it to grab the computer FQDN instead of the user FDQN in the -Domain parameter.

How can I achieve this?

Powershell.exe -executionpolicy unrestricted -File C:\temp\gpo\source\2\import_gpos.ps1 -SomInfo -Domain %USERDNSDOMAIN% -backupfolder "C:\temp\gpo\source\2"

$objIPProperties = [System.Net.NetworkInformation.IPGlobalProperties]::GetIPGlobalProperties()

$computerFQDN="{0}.{1}" -f $objIPProperties.HostName, $objIPProperties.DomainName

Powershell.exe -executionpolicy unrestricted -File C:\temp\gpo\source\2\import_gpos.ps1 -SomInfo -Domain $computerFQDN -backupfolder "C:\temp\gpo\source\2"

Hi Wizard,

That's giving me errors:

$objlproperties is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

$ComputerFQDN is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Try this:

powershell -command "(gwmi WIN32_ComputerSystem).Domain" > myTmpFile
set /p PcFQDN= < myTmpFile
del /q myTmpFile

echo %PcFQDN%

Just modify your batch file to include this line
set FQDN=%computername%.%userdnsdomain%

Then your next line would be
Powershell.exe -executionpolicy unrestricted -File C:\temp\gpo\source\2\import_gpos.ps1 -SomInfo -Domain %FQDN% -backupfolder "C:\temp\gpo\source\2"

Foo I think the problem is he does not want the user domain.

What I gave him would work perfectly

for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('powershell "(gwmi WIN32_ComputerSystem).Domain"') do set  FQDN=%%a

Perhaps you're right.  I interpreted the question to mean that he wanted the FQDN of the computer (i.e. something like "computername.domain.com").

That is what he is after but based on his comment:

I now need to modify it to grab the computer FQDN instead of the user FDQN in the -Domain parameter.

I think he might have an environment where user and computer accounts are in separate domains, I might be wrong but that is the impression I get.
