Scriupt to look for XP machines
Posted on 2014-04-09
Does anybody know of a script that can scan for Windows XP based on a IP range instead of Windows Active Directory. I support large number of sites using windows XP and do not have it registered in AD. So to reduce our risk, I need to find those machines hiding out in the dark corners of my network. Unfortunately, most people do not want to give up a legacy machine that is no longer supported by Microsoft. So they try to let one or two slip throw the cracks… but when you add all of those up in enterprise environment the numbers can get very high…..
