I recently had a need write records from a database to text files, with one file per record. This post covers how I did it, with VBScript.
When you manage an Active Directory infrastructure that spans multiple sites, it is a good idea to test the ability of clients to successfully authenticate against domain controllers in other sites.
Need to find every workstation that a user has logged on to? Security event logs rolled over or you can't otherwise get that info from the domain controllers? Here is a way to get it.
Some time ago, I wrote an app that required the ability to resolve hostnames to IP Addresses, and vice versa. After some searching around, I found this gem.
You can use this handy little script to find remote desktop sessions on all servers running in your Active Directory domain.
From time to time, you might be called upon to get some information about many machines, quickly. If you don't have an up-to-date inventory system, or that data is suspect, you can leverage a script to get the data for you.
Getting the hostname from an IP address (or vice versa) is no great magic, and can be done easily with PowerShell, by simply leveraging .Net to do the work.
