To bulk import my SQL Servers into Arcserve I ran this query on all my production servers via Registered Servers
--arc_import.sql select cast(serverproperty('ComputerNamePhysicalNetBIOS') as varchar(100)) + ',DOM\svc-arcserve,password'
I pasted the column into a text file saved to my desktop.

NOTE1: you have to put the right domain, service-account, and password into the script NOTE2: With clusters the script will only get the name of the current active-node.

-- physical server names exec master..xp_regread 'HKEY_LOCAL_Machine', 'SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ComputerName\ComputerName\','ComputerName'
