The ListOrganizations verb of MBUtility lists MainBoss maintenance organizations known to the current user (i.e. the organizations that would be listed in the Select Maintenance Organization window). The command has the format

mbutility ListOrganizations option ...

where the possible options are:

Determines whether you can actually connect with each organization listed. The default behavior is -Probe, which means that MBUtility doesn't test connections in this way.
Displays the real registry name for each database, as well as the databases' usual display names. The default behavior is -RealNames, which means MBUtility only shows the usual display names.
Sorts the list by server name.
Sorts the list by database name.
Shows the version of each database, provided that the database is accessible and its version can be read.
Shows which database is the default one to start, and which database was the last one you used (if it's difference from the default database).
Displays the organizations in a special registry list called AllUsers. This list is in the HKLM section of the registry rather than a user's individual HKCU. The AllUsers list is particularly useful when you're using ClickOnce, since the organizations in the list will be available to all users. (However, security roles still control what a particular user can or can't do with the organization's database.) You can add organizations to AllUsers using the AddOrganization verb, and delete them from the list using DeleteOrganization.
