COM Errors

17 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I am having a hard time dealing with COM errors..

I wrote a a script to pull WMI info from machines and then post these items to an excel document..

I first ping the host then if ping is good do something.

I have admin access to all the systems. So I am unclear why i am getting the error. the error always states it is the first Objget item which is the first WMI pull

Here is a copy of the code.. Like I said I have no clue where to start to deal with COM errors.

I forgot to add.. The script runs fine for most systems it only fails on a certain few.. So say it runs the first 47 loops then throws the error.

I get an error

EDIT: When looking into the ADFunctions there is a

; _ADDoError  : Error event handler for COM errors. This is global so will pick up errors from your program if you include this library

How do I launch this at error?

$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "_ADDoError") ; Install a custom error handler

;  MyErrFunc
Func _ADDoError()
    $HexNumber = Hex($oMyError.number, 8)
    
    If $HexNumber = 80020009 Then
        SetError(3)
        Return

        Return
    EndIf

    EndSelect

After googleing the error I was able to determine the error had to do with the WMI repo on the remote machine.. I tried to execute wmic items locally and they failed.. I rebuilt the wmi repo and all is good again.. Thanks for the help :)

I am constantly getting errors for different systems. Is there a way to log the error but then continue with the next item in the script???

Basically during the loop phase I am getting 2 different errors.

1. When attempting to pull the WMI info from a remote system I am unable to log in.

2. I am able to log into the remote system but the WMI repo is corrupt requiring me to rebuild it.

I have already put in a ping to see if the system is online before attempting to log in, I am an Admin on the affected system.

I understand I do not want to forget about the errors but I also want to get the rest of the info I am trying to pull from the rest of my OU..

Once the error is logged I can then go back and fix the error-ed machines.

I noticed that you are still using the "old" active directory UDF.

The "new" UDF has a lot more functions and better error handling. For download please see my signature.

I would split your script into two parts.

Part 1:

Do all the AD related stuff. The UDF installs its own error handler if none is installed when _AD_Open() is called. The error handler is dropped when _AD_Close() is called.

This would look like:

#include <ad.au3>
_AD_Open()
_ADGetObjectsInOU()
_AD_Close()

Part 2:

Do your WMI stuff. Install your own error handler. Check the kind of error you get and decide what to do (log the error and continue, exit the script ...)

No big deal.

The function names have changed from _ADxx to _AD_xx, you have to verify the parameters (results are no longer returned byRef) and _AD_Open() is needed to open a connection to the AD.

But on the other hand the adfunctions.au3 still works.

What errors do you get and what did you change in your script?

Ok I figured out the excel errors, when the script is failing it doesn't close out the excel processes..

Ok for some reason it is not populating my $aComputers array like adfunctions did.. here is my code

#include <Excel.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <file.au3>
#include <ad.au3>
_AD_Open()

;****************************************************************
;~ Pull items from C4 OU
;****************************************************************
Global $aComputers
$sOU =  InputBox("OU?","What is your OU's Distinguidhed Name?","","",250,125)
If  @error then
    MsgBox(0,"Error","You have submitted and invalid OU!")
    exit
elseif $sOU = "" then
    MsgBox(0,"Error","You have submitted and invalid OU!")
    exit
endif
_AD_GetObjectsInOU($aComputers,$sOU,"(objectclass=computer)",2,"name,location") ;calls function in the AD.au3 to query AD
_ArrayDisplay($aComputers)
_AD_Close()

It doesn't even display the array..

;****************************************************************
;~ Pull items from C4 OU
;****************************************************************
Global $aComputers
$sOU =  InputBox("OU?","What is your OU's Distinguidhed Name?","","",250,125)
If  @error then
    MsgBox(0,"Error","You have submitted and invalid OU!")
    exit
elseif $sOU = "" then
    MsgBox(0,"Error","You have submitted and invalid OU!")
    exit
endif
$aComputers = _AD_GetObjectsInOU($sOU,"(objectclass=computer)",2,"name,location") ;calls function in the AD.au3 to query AD
_ArrayDisplay($aComputers)
_AD_Close()

Please replace

_AD_GetObjectsInOU($aComputers,$sOU,"(objectclass=computer)",2,"name,location")
with

$aComputers = _AD_GetObjectsInOU($sOU,"(objectclass=computer)",2,"name,location")

To improve performance you should always use objectcategory:

$aComputers = _AD_GetObjectsInOU($sOU,"(objectcategory=computer)",2,"name,location")

Can you explain the objectclass vs objectcategory?

objectcategory is indexed, objectclass is not.

So when you use objectclass so scan the whole AD.

Please check this link for more information.
