VBScript Example

The following example shows how to retrieve a list of Exchange_DSAccessDC instances, and how to retrieve the ConfigurationType property on the instances.

' Name:      ShowExchange_DSAccessDC_ConfigurationType
' Purpose:   Display each Exchange_DSAccessDC found for the
'            specified Exchange server, and show the ConfigurationType
'            property on the Exchange_DSAccessDC
'            instances
' Input:     strComputerName [string] the computer to access
' Output:    Displays the name of each Exchange_DSAccessDC and
'            the ConfigurationType property
Public Sub ShowExchange_DSAccessDC_ConfigurationType ( strComputerName )

Const cWMINameSpace = "root/MicrosoftExchangeV2"
Const cWMIInstance = "Exchange_DSAccessDC"

Dim strWinMgmts              ' Connection string for WMI
Dim objWMIExchange           ' Exchange Namespace WMI object
Dim listExchange_DSAccessDCs ' Exchange_DSAccessDC collection
Dim objExchange_DSAccessDC   ' A single Exchange_DSAccessDC instance

' 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 Exchange_DSAccessDC provider.
strWinMgmts = "winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!//" & _
   strComputerName & "/" & cWMINameSpace
' Get an object using the string you just created.
Set objWMIExchange =  GetObject(strWinMgmts)
' The instances appear as a list of Exchange_DSAccessDC
' instances in the Exchange namespace.
Set listExchange_DSAccessDCs = objWMIExchange.InstancesOf(cWMIInstance)
' Iterate through the list of Exchange_DSAccessDC objects.
For each objExchange_DSAccessDC in listExchange_DSAccessDCs
   ' Display the value of the Name property.
   WScript.echo "Name = " & _
    "[" & TypeName(objExchange_DSAccessDC.Name) & "] " & _
   ' Display the value of the ConfigurationType property.
   WScript.echo "    ConfigurationType = [" & _
     TypeName(objExchange_DSAccessDC.ConfigurationType) & "] " & _
   ' Move to the next Exchange_DSAccessDC.
