' Purpose:   Display each Queue found for the Exchange server,
'            and show the LinkName property on the
'            ExchangeQueue objects.
' Input:     strComputerName [string] the computer to access
' Output:    Displays the name of each Queue.
'===============================================================
Public Sub ShowQueue_LinkName ( strComputerName )

Const cWMINameSpace = "root/cimv2/applications/exchange"
Const cWMIInstance = "ExchangeQueue"

Dim strWinMgmts              ' Connection string for WMI
Dim objWMIExchange           ' Exchange Namespace WMI object
Dim listQueues               ' ExchangeQueue collection
Dim objExchangeQueue         ' A single ExchangeQueue WMI object

' Create the object string, indicating WMI (winmgmts), using the
' current user credentials (impersonationLevel=impersonate),
' on the computer passed to the function in strComputerName, and
' using the CIM namespace for the ExchangeQueue provider.
strWinMgmts = "winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!//" & _
   strComputerName & "/" & cWMINameSpace
'
' Get an object using the string you just created.
Set objWMIExchange =  GetObject(strWinMgmts)
'
' The Resources that currently exist appear as a list of
' ExchangeQueue instances in the Exchange namespace.
Set listQueues = objWMIExchange.InstancesOf(cWMIInstance)
'
' Were any ExchangeQueue Instances returned?
if (listQueues.count > 0) then
  ' If yes, do the following:
  ' Iterate through the list of ExchangeQueue objects.
  For each objExchangeQueue in listQueues
     '
     ' Display the value of the LinkName property.
     WScript.echo "LinkName = " & _
      "[" & TypeName(objExchangeQueue.LinkName) & "] " & _
       objExchangeQueue.LinkName
     '
     ' Move to the next ExchangeQueue.
  Next
else
  ' If no ExchangeQueue instances were returned,
  ' display that.
  WScript.Echo "No ExchangeQueue instances were returned."
end if
end Sub
