set AD computer description during deployment

Recommended Posts



I'm using a VBS script during OS deployment to set the AD computer description.

But results are unpredictable at best (if you use numbers or gaps)

Does someone has a suggestion for a good working solution ?


script that I was testing :


cscript.exe adcompdesc.vbs “%ComputerDescription%”

dim Computerdn, strComputerName
dim Args

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
'----Get Computer DN------
Set objADSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
ComputerDN = objADSysInfo.ComputerName
strcomputerdn = "LDAP://" & computerDN
Set objADSysInfo = Nothing
'-----Read commandline---
Set args = WScript.Arguments

strdesc = args(0)
Addcompdesc strdesc

Function addcompdesc(strPCdescription)

Set objComputer = GetObject (strComputerDN)
objComputer.Put "Description", strPCdescription  
end function
