Get the user roles for domainuser RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have a login vbscript for our server witch checks if a user is part of a certain group.

    We use the following function

    Private Function IsMember(groupName)
    	  flgIsMember = false
    	  Set userObj = GetObject("WinNT://" & net.UserDomain & "/" & net.UserName & ",user")
    	  For Each grp In userObj.Groups
    	    If lcase(grp.Name) = lcase(groupName) Then
    	      flgIsMember = true
    	      Exit For
    	    End If
    	  IsMember = flgIsMember
    	  Set userObj = nothing
    	End Function

    This is working for users who are directly connected with the domain, but not for users who are on a windows version without direct domain connection.

    The problem for those computers are that net.UserDomain returns the workstation name and net.Username the local username.

    Does anyone know how to get the correct username for the connection with the server? I can hardcode the net.UserDomain because it is only one server.

    I think I need to get it from the Windows Vault but I don't know how to retrieve data from the Vault.

    I can do it with a batch file but with a batch file I don't know how to get the usergroups from a domain like at vbscript.

    This is how I did it with a batch file, maybe I can call this batch script at my vbscript and get the return value back?:

    FOR /f "tokens=1-2,14" %%i IN ('cmdkey /list:myserver') DO (
    	::ECHO %%i - %%j - %%k
    	IF "%%i" == "User:" (
    		SET usrname=%%j
    ECHO Username: %usrname%
