Locate Domain Controllers in AD

2 posts in this topic

I was looking for a script that may have already been done to search for Domain Controllers in a Domain. I ran across a VBscript but I'm still foggy on trying to convert it to AutoIt. Is there any of you gurus good at VBscript and AutoIt both to assist me to converting this to AutoIt code? Please...

This is the VB portion

' Determine configuration context and DNS domain from RootDSE object.
Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
strConfig = objRootDSE.Get("configurationNamingContext")
strDNSDomain = objRootDSE.Get("defaultNamingContext")

' Use ADO to search Active Directory for ObjectClass nTDSDSA.
' This will identify all Domain Controllers.
Set adoCommand = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
Set adoConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
adoConnection.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
adoConnection.Open "Active Directory Provider"
adoCommand.ActiveConnection = adoConnection

strBase = "<LDAP://" & strConfig & ">"
strFilter = "(objectClass=nTDSDSA)"
strAttributes = "AdsPath"
strQuery = strBase & ";" & strFilter & ";" & strAttributes & ";subtree"

adoCommand.CommandText = strQuery
adoCommand.Properties("Page Size") = 100
adoCommand.Properties("Timeout") = 60
adoCommand.Properties("Cache Results") = False

Set adoRecordset = adoCommand.Execute

' Enumerate parent objects of class nTDSDSA. Save Domain Controller
' AdsPaths in dynamic array arrstrDCs.
k = 0
Do Until adoRecordset.EOF
    Set objDC = _
        GetObject(GetObject(adoRecordset.Fields("AdsPath").Value).Parent)
    ReDim Preserve arrstrDCs(k)
    arrstrDCs(k) = objDC.DNSHostName
    k = k + 1
    adoRecordset.MoveNext
Loop
adoRecordset.Close

I've done some before but this seems a bit complicated.


EndFuncAutoIt is the shiznit. I love it.

Sweet, found _ADListDomainControllers() in the adfunctions.au3 udf. I use that udf but didn't realize that function was already in there.

Nevermind.
