dim strInputPath, strOutputPath, strStatus
dim objFSO, objTextIn, objTextOut
strInputPath = "c:\serverlist.txt" '- location of input
strOutputPath = "c:\output.csv" '- location of output
set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
set objTextIn = objFSO.OpenTextFile( strInputPath,1 )
set objTextOut = objFSO.CreateTextFile( strOutputPath )
Do until objTextIn.AtEndOfStream = True
    strComputer = objTextIn.ReadLine
        if fPingTest( strComputer ) then
             strStatus = "UP"
             strStatus = "DOWN"
        end if
        objTextOut.WriteLine(strComputer & "," & strStatus)
function fPingTest( strComputer )
        dim objShell,objPing
        dim strPingOut, flag
        set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
        set objPing = objShell.Exec("ping " & strComputer)
    strPingOut = objPing.StdOut.ReadAll
