VB Script

4 posts in this topic

I need to create a VB Script to ping a specific IP address from every existing server in our network to confirm the store's firewall rules are correct to talk to the KMS server in preparation for the upgrade to Windows 2008.

The IP address to ping is 172.xx.xx.xxx

I need this script to ping the IP, capture the results, and bring the results back to RemoteWare where they can be organized into a consolidated report .csv file.

"ServerName", "Result", "Date/Time"

The Result should be True for Ping Response Received and False for No Ping Reponse received. The ServerName should be the Controller computer name.

Does anyone already have something like this available?

Whilst this is a fairly standard company/business request, (with many examples available across the web); there are websites where persons are happy to produce new or bespoke solutions from existing scripts for a little remuneration.

I'd suggest on this occasion you use one of them.

Here is a Link to a vbs script that I wrote. With a lttile modification it will do what you want.

I would suggest you rethink your strategy on this.

Your goal is to determine if ALL your servers can communicate with the KMS. This communication is performed over port 1688 (by default) and a ping request will not test for this.

Take a look here http://technet.micro...y/ee939272.aspx for more troubleshooting information.
