'            objects
' Change:    cComputerName [string] the computer to access
' Output:    Displays the name of each Exchange_Server's GUID property
'===============================================================

On Error Resume Next
Dim cComputerName
Const cWMINameSpace = "root/MicrosoftExchangeV2"
Const cWMIInstance = "Exchange_Server"
cComputerName = "MyComputerNETBIOSName"

Dim strWinMgmts		' Connection string for WMI
Dim objWMIExchange	' Exchange Namespace WMI object
Dim listExchange_Servers	' ExchangeLogons collection
Dim objExchange_Server		' A single ExchangeLogon WMI object

' Create the object string, indicating WMI (winmgmts), using the
' current user credentials (impersonationLevel=impersonate),
' on the computer specified in the constant cComputerName, and
' using the CIM namespace for the Exchange provider.
strWinMgmts = "winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!//"& _
cComputerName&"/"&cWMINameSpace
Set objWMIExchange =  GetObject(strWinMgmts)
' Verify we were able to correctly set the object.
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
  WScript.Echo "ERROR: Unable to connect to the WMI namespace."
Else
  '
  ' The Resources that currently exist appear as a list of
  ' Exchange_Server instances in the Exchange namespace.
  Set listExchange_Servers = objWMIExchange.InstancesOf(cWMIInstance)
  '
  ' Were any Exchange_Server Instances returned?
  If (listExchange_Servers.count > 0) Then
    ' If yes, do the following:
    ' Iterate through the list of Exchange_Server objects.
    For Each objExchange_Server in listExchange_Servers
   Wscript.Echo""
       '
       ' Display the value of the GUID property.
       WScript.echo "GUID                     = "& _
        " ["&TypeName(objExchange_Server.GUID)&"] "& _
       objExchange_Server.GUID
       '
    Next
  Else
    ' If no Exchange_Server instances were returned,
    ' display that.
    WScript.Echo "WARNING: No Exchange_Server instances were returned."
  End If
