I would like to create a method to ping a large number of devices using a list of host names. I would like to do this through a script and then return the details to a file/ excel.
There are a number of postings on this but I can't get any of them to work without taking up all of the memory (Windows 7 4GB) on my machine or taking longer to run than me performing the exercise manually.
I appreciate that there are free tools to do this but I need to create my own as I don't have access to new tools.
Is it possibly to gather the MAC address as well as IP address through this method?
