WMI Ping Script

July 1, 2008

Most of the computer management scripts run against multiple computers, I usually want to have the script do one task if the computer is available for management or another when it’s not. So I put together a very simple function, WMIPing, that takes advantage of the Err object.

The function accepts a single value:

  • strComputer


This string variable is usually passed from a calling routine. That routine may be working through a .csv file or it may be pulling this data direct from Active Directory. I attempt a connection to the computer, if it fails I set the online flag to False, otherwise I set it to true.
