Name Property

This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.

The Name property specifies the computer name of the domain controller. When you are creating new DSAccessDC instances, or retrieving a specific DSAccessDC instance, the Name property is required. The Name property is read-write, and is a key property of this class.

Applies To

The Name property is a member of the Exchange_DSAccessDC Class.

Instance Path

The Name property appears on instances of the \\COMPUTERNAME\ROOT\MicrosoftExchangeV2:Exchange_DSAccessDC class.

MOF Syntax

 write, key, required] string Name = NULL;





When you are creating a new Exchange_DSAccessDC instance, set the Name property to the fully qualified domain name of the domain controller. For example,

The Name property overrides the Name property on the CIM_LogicalElement class, from which the Exchange_DSAccessDC class is derived from.

VBScript Example

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

' Name:      ShowExchange_DSAccessDC_Name
' Purpose:   Display the name of each Exchange_DSAccessDC found
'            for the specified Exchange server
' Input:     strComputerName [string] the computer to access
' Output:    Displays the name of each Exchange_DSAccessDC
Public Sub ShowExchange_DSAccessDC_Name ( 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) & "] " & _
   ' Move to the next Exchange_DSAccessDC.
