Hi All,

What I need is a script like vbs which returns a list of all sql 2000/2005 servers on the local networks.

Is it likely?

Thx

You can run on command prompt
isql -L which gives all the sql server running on network.
You can use xp_cmd command to execute this command from query analyzer. You can easily call it from vb.
Thanks
Sanjeev OH

use master
create procedure s_list_servers
as
xp_cmdshell 'isql -L'
--something like this ....

Osql/Isql /L returns a list of SQL servers. How could I check their versions?

After getting list of sql server you can use isql to connect each server and run @@version on each server which will give you the version of each server. If you need coding for this I may write it.

Hi sanjnep,

I am not good at SQL. What I need is to fill up my VB dropdown list with a list of sql servers, which have sql 2k /2k5.

I'll really appreciate if you can post your code here.

Thanks
