What I need to do is add a few lines to an existing batch file so that it acts differently depending on the machine name.
We have a standardised naming scheme where the first three letters of the machine name indicate the machine type and location. For three of these machine prefixes I want to run a command, for the rest I don't.
What I've got so far is that a command like this will find the characters in the machine name and either return the name, or return nothing depending on whether it matches:
echo %COMPUTERNAME% | FIND /I "UKD"
And using a loop like this will do the same thing but for multiple names:
FOR %%A IN (UKD UKL USD) DO echo %COMPUTERNAME% | FIND /C /I "%%A"
What I haven't figured out is how to use the output from either of those in a
IF statement or something similar. Can anyone help me out?
