How can I use a script to list sites in Active Directory (AD)?

A. The following script, which you can download here , outputs a list of AD sites:

Set objRootDSE = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
strConfigurationNC = objRootDSE.Get("configurationNamingContext")

strSitesContainer = "LDAP://cn=Sites," & strConfigurationNC
Set objSitesContainer = GetObject(strSitesContainer)
objSitesContainer.Filter = Array("site")

For Each objSite In objSitesContainer
    WScript.Echo "Site: " & Mid(objSite.Name,4)
Here's a sample execution of the above code:
D:\Temp>cscript listsites.vbs
Site: Dallas
Site: London
Site: NewYork
