Hi I have the following command:

for /F "tokens=*" %%i in (userslist.txt) do takeown /f "\\%fileserver%\d$\Profiles\%%i" /r /d y & icacls.exe \\%fileserver%\d$\Profiles\%%* /resize & icacls.exe \\%fileserver%\d$\Profiles\%%i /grant %%i:(OI)(CI)F builtin\Administrators:(OI)(CI)F /inheritance:r >> error.log

Open in new window


I'm running this batch file from a 2008 server, I would like to import the file server IP from the following input.csv  file that has the following:

fqdn  file_server
van.acme.dom.com 10.10.10.10
tor.acme.dom.com 20.20.20.20
new.acme.dom.com 30.30.30.30

I want to be able to query the current computer FQDN and match it to the file_server ip address in the input.csv file. Then take that IP and make it my %fileserver% variable in the batch file.

The idea is to be able to run this batch file from any network and it'll pick up the corresponding file server Ip from the input.csv file

I have access to PowerShell and can run (gwmi WIN32_ComputerSystem).Domain but I dont know how to then take that FQDN and match it to the IP adress found in input.csv and then feed that IP to the batch file.

Thank you.

To get the matching IP of the fqdn from the input .csv file  (say  fqdn.csv)

$file = Import-Csv C:\temp\fqdn.csv  
$domainToFind="tor.acme.dom.com"
$IP=($file | ? { $_.fqdn -eq  $domainToFind } | select file_server).file_server

OR

$file = Import-Csv C:\temp\fqdn.csv  
$domainToFind=(gwmi WIN32_ComputerSystem).Domain
$IP=($file | ? { $_.fqdn -eq  $domainToFind } | select file_server).file_server


$IP has the corresponding IP address of the domain.

Plain batch; I REMed out the permission change part so that you can test if the IP gets resolved like you want:
@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set ServerFile=input.csv
for /f "skip=1" %%a in ('wmic.exe Path WIN32_ComputerSystem Get Domain') do set ComputerDomain=%%a&goto Break
:Break
echo Computer domain: '%ComputerDomain%'
for /f "tokens=1,2" %%a in ('type "%ServerFile%" ^| find /i "%ComputerDomain%"') do set Fileserver=%%b
echo File server IP:  '%Fileserver%'
for /F "tokens=*" %%i in (userslist.txt) do (
	REM takeown /f "\\%fileserver%\d$\Profiles\%%i" /r /d y >>error.log 2>&1
	REM icacls.exe \\%fileserver%\d$\Profiles\%%* /resize >>error.log 2>&1
	REM icacls.exe \\%fileserver%\d$\Profiles\%%i /grant %%i:(OI)(CI)F builtin\Administrators:(OI)(CI)F /inheritance:r >>error.log 2>&1
)

save the following code in "c:\temp\get_IP.ps1" file

#-----------------------------------
$file = Import-Csv C:\temp\fqdn.csv  
$domainToFind=(gwmi WIN32_ComputerSystem).Domain
$IP=($file | ? { $_.fqdn -eq  $domainToFind } | select file_server).file_server
[environment]::SetEnvironmentVariable('fileserver',"$IP",'USER')
#-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In your batch file at the top of it add the following line:
#-------------------------------------------
powershell.exe -file "c:\temp\getIP.ps1"

then follows your batch file code.
#-----------------------------------------------------------
which executes the file and sets the environment variable %fileserver%
%fileserver%  is the environment variable now and have the value of the corresponding IP address and can be accessed from the batch file.
