'===============================================================
' Name:      ShowConnectorState_GUID
' Purpose:   Display each Connector found for Exchange server,
'            and show the GUID property on the
'            ExchangeConnector objects
' Input:     strComputerName [string] the computer to access
' Output:    Displays the name of each Connector and the
'            GUID property
'===============================================================
Public Sub ShowConnectorState_GUID ( strComputerName )

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

Dim strWinMgmts              ' Connection string for WMI
Dim objWMIExchange           ' Exchange Namespace WMI object
Dim listExchangeConnectors   ' ExchangeConnectorState collection
Dim objExchangeConnector     ' A single ExchangeConnector 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 ExchangeConnectorState provider.
strWinMgmts = "winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!//" & _
   strComputerName & "/" & cWMINameSpace
'
' Get an object using the string you just created.
Set objWMIExchange =  GetObject(strWinMgmts)
'
' The Connectors that currently exist appear as a list of
' ExchangeConnectorState instances in the Exchange namespace.
Set listExchangeConnectors = objWMIExchange.InstancesOf(cWMIInstance)
'
' Iterate through the list of ExchangeConnectorState objects.
For each objExchangeConnector in listExchangeConnectors
   '
   ' Display the value of the Name property.
   WScript.echo "Name = " & _
    "[" & TypeName(objExchangeConnector.Name) & "] " & _
     objExchangeConnector.Name
   '
   ' Display the value of the GUID property.
   WScript.echo "    GUID = [" & _
     TypeName(objExchangeConnector.GUID) & "] " & _
    objExchangeConnector.GUID
   '
   ' Move to the next ExchangeConnectorState.
Next
