We need to push out vnc to all servers in our data center. They are all in different workgroups but all have a common local admin username and password. How can we do this easily?

Hi Troubleshooter24 and everyone,

See if this helps:
Fist get the computer/server names you want to target in a text file. Something like below will do the trick:

net view > computers.txt

That will create a computer.txt text file with the computers available at the moment

computer-1
computer-2
serverDC-1
laptop-4

From the command prompt type the following:

for /F “tokens=1″ %i in (computers.txt) do call vnc %i /user domain\admin password /log /vnc

This will read in each computer name and pump that result into the command following the DO statement.

Now, just wait and watch the process push VNC out to the cilents.

HTH

    Net View won't work as the computers are not in a domain.

    Also, the link about using a GPO (which I copied here for reference) doesn't apply if the machines are not in a domain. How to Deploy VNC using Group Policy

    Hi, Sorry, but I can't agree with you. Net view will work either in a Domain or workgroup. So, I think the answer is still valid. HTH

    "Sorry, but I can’t agree with you. Net view will work either in a Domain or workgroup. So, I think the answer is still valid." Yes, it does, but even if it didn't, the answer would still be valid as the file could be created by using any other method.

    When I use NET VIEW on a non-domain computer I only get machines which are on the same subnet as me. If you have multiple subnets you'll need to run it on each subnet to get all the machines.
