    Any tool ?

    Thanks a lot in advance for your answer!

  2. See if this works for you...

    dsget computer [ComputerDN] -sid

    The dsget command set is native to Windows 2003 servers. If you want to run
    it from an XP workstation, install the Admin Tools from the Windows 2003
    Server CD on to the XP workstation.

    To get the Computer DN you can query the Domain for it:

    dsquery computer -name [workstation name or partial with wildcards]

    Then pipe it into the other command... here is an example when the
    workstations are all from SALES so they all start with SALES followed by a
    number 001.

    dsquery computer -name SALES* | dsget computer -sid

    The result will be a list of the SIDs.

    Thank you for your answer but this is giving me the SID, not the GUID
    Any other ideas ?

  4. Doh! Here is a short script that will run on a workstation and display the

    strComputer = "."
    Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\CIMV2")
    Set colComputer = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM
    For Each objCompItem In colComputer
    WScript.Echo "Your GUID is: " & objCompItem.UUID
