Zones-wmi-multi.vbs

By The Scripting Guys, Microsoft Corporation

This script configures the settings for a specific Internet Explorer security zone by editing the registry, using the WMI System Registry provider. It can run against multiple computers.

The relevant security zone is indicated by the numerical value of the subkey under Zones in the path:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\x

where the meaning of x is:

0 = Local Computer
1 = Intranet
2 = Trusted Sites
3 = Internet
4 = Restricted Sites

You can change this value in the variable strKeyPath to configure a different zone.

Zones-wmi-multi.vbs corresponds to Zones.vbs, one of the scripts that ships with Application Compatibility Testing and Mitigation Guide for Windows XP Service Pack 2 and which are documented in the Appendix. You can download a Windows Installer (.msi) file that installs the Guide and its associated scripts from:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=9300BECF-2DEE-4772-ADD9-AD0EAF89C4A7&displaylang=en

Input for this script comes from a text file, zones-hosts.txt, which contains the names of computers against which the script will run. This text file must be in the same folder as the script.

Each line of the input file must consist of a computer name. Each computer must be accessible on the network and the credentials under which the script is run must have administrative privileges on it. For example :



client1
client2
server1
server2



Be sure there is no line break after the final line, as this will be interpreted by the script as an empty string.

To use the script, copy the code, paste it into Notepad, and then save the script as Zones-wmi-multi.vbs. To run the script, open a command prompt window to the directory of the script and type:

cscript zones-wmi-multi.vbs

If the default script host on the computer is Cscript.exe, the initial "cscript" may be omitted.
