    add a startup script to write a text file to a location and count the text files.

    can't the domain controller tell me?

    Reason is for a software audit. I need to know how many machines have X application installed.
    A startup script is probably going to be a bit long-winded, esp if a machine doesn't get booted for a while.

    I realise that longer-term planning by using ocs-ng or similar may have saved the day, I was just hoping there is a bell and whistle within AD that could just say how many users/computers something applies to????

    'GPMC sample scripts' - might have some useful bits, show which OUs it applies to - then count the machines for each OU ?

    Counting pc's within each ou would work fine in most cases unless your using group memberships or wmi queries to target further in which case counting pc's would be very hard to automate.
