Get Computer Name

Recommended Posts

If anyone was ever looking to get the computer name of the client rather than the host, here is the groovy to do that:


import java.util.*;

import java.lang.*;

import java.net.*;



try{

   String computername = InetAddress.getLocalHost().getHostName();

   return(computername);

 }catch (Exception e){

   return("Exception caught ="+e.getMessage());

}

Enjoy!

That's a good script.

If you want the computer's IP address, network card, gateway, etc, you can also issue a shellscript:

ipconfig /all

using the Run Shell Script function included with SM. For OSX a different function would be used.

On Mac you can use plain AppleScript, in a Perform AppleScript function. There is a function, system info, that returns several things:

computer name of (system info)
