Getting a local servername

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Me again ....  I've been over the enviroment variables and can only find the @logonserver option.  What I am looking for is a variable that gives me the name of the LOCAL server, not the server that the user is logged into. Is this possible, or will I need to populate an array based off ip octets to correspond to the local server names?

Edit:  Oh yeh, this is an AD network.

After I read your post several times I still don't know what you mean with "LOCAL server"!

Do you want to get the logon server name?

I'm in the same boat. A server VM you're running locally on the machine maybe?

Sorry for the confusion. We have an Active Directory network setup, where users login to the Domain Controller that is at out central office. Login also connects them to the local file server at their location. I want to pull that local server name, but can't find a @variable that will do that. Is there something in the AD UDF that I overlooked that could do that?

I assume there is a login script which connects some network drives and you want that server names?

Basically yes. I can do this with a 2D array by ip address, and server name, but was trying to avoid having to fill out an array with 75 sites.

Are drive letter(s) given (assigned) to the "local server" you're looking for? If so, the DOS command "NET USE" will display the server name(s). Parsing them out is up to you.
