Get, Set, and Clear Computer Descriptions With Ease
Came across it a while ago.
Does anyone know if this is possible?
Yesterday I implemented a batch file on our student domain. This gives us computers in use, users, ip addresses and mac addresses. This is all exported to a folder on the domain controller.
This morning, I had the bright idea of, perhaps, being able to get the computer description (Which is where we identify the computer by room number) and dragging that down too.
Problem is.....I don't know where to start! Any pointers, anyone?
Secondly, if it IS possible....then is it also possible to do anything, by Group Policy, to fire out locations into the computer description, for those that we haven't done?
Any thoughts are gratefully received!

FOR /F "TOKENS=2* DELIMS=:" %%A IN ('net view %COMPUTERNAME% ^| FIND "Location"') DO FOR %%B IN (%%A) DO SET LOCATION=%%B
echo %username% logged Onto: %computername%, %LOCATION%, User Name: %USERNAME%, IPADDRESS:%IP%, MACADDRESS:%macaddress%, Login Time:%time%, Login Date:%date% >> \\domaincontroller\folder\users\%username%.csv
This is the add-on that I've had done for the script. This should allow the description to come down....But it may be a case of going round and sorting the machines, one by one, as I'm not convinced that they ALL have "remote" enabled.
Thanks for the pointer, CPJ
