    What I did to get the names of all the computers in a
    domain is to parse the DOS net view command. This gets a
    list of all active computers in the domain at that time.
    You can also use something like this:
    'Use the WinNT Directory Services
    strDomain = "WinNT://" & strDomain

    'Create the Domain object
    Set TheDomain = GetObject(strDomain)

    'Search for Computers in the Domain
    TheDomain.Filter = Array("Computer")
    row = 2
    For Each Computer In TheDomain
    cName = Computer.Name
    wscript.echo cname
    next

    but that will return all prior computer names that still
    reside on a wins server.
    Once you have all the names of the computers, you can just
    query each one with a for loop.
