Hi

*** Environment ***
Windows 2003 AD
Exchange 2007

I have the following code (to follow) that Iam working on, to query my mount points and report back freespace/capacity.

I would like to be able to include some logic to give me also the freespace in %, I.e

Mount Point      freeSpace (GB)       capacity    Percentfree
-----------      --------------                  --------       -------------
M:\                          0.07                    0.10           %x
M:\SG1\Logs\         0.97                   1.00            %x
M:\SG1\Database\ 2.86                   2.90             %x
M:\SG2\Logs\         0.97                   1.00            %x
M:\SG2\Database\ 2.86                   2.90             %x

The PoSh code is:

forEach ($server in (Get-Content allservers.txt)) {
Get-WmiObject Win32_volume -ComputerName $server | where {$_.caption -like "M:\*"} | `
select @{name="Mount Point";expression={$_.caption}},@{name="freeSpace (GB)";e={($_.freespace/1GB).tostring("F02")}},`
@{name="capacity";expression={($_.Capacity/1GB).tostring("F02")}} | ft -autosize | out-file "$server.txt"
}

This all works fine, as I say I would like to get a % conversion done also (if possible) and then I would like to get this sent by email...

Any pointers appreciated..!

Cheers
Bry

I have this to send it via email for now - would really appreciate the % conversion though :-)


forEach ($server in (Get-Content allservers.txt)) {

Get-WmiObject Win32_volume -ComputerName $server | where {$_.caption -like "M:\*"} | `
select @{name="Mount Point";expression={$_.caption}},@{name="freeSpace (GB)";e={($_.freespace/1GB).tostring("F02")}},`
@{name="capacity";expression={($_.Capacity/1GB).tostring("F02")}} | ft -autosize | out-file "$server.txt"
}

$file = "c:\scripts\testing\server.txt"
$smtpServer = "mailrelay"
$msg = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage
$att = new-object Net.Mail.Attachment($file)
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
$Today = Get-Date
$msg.From = "ServerEngineering@company.int"
$msg.To.Add("user@company.int")
$msg.Subject = "$Today Today's VMP check - DO NOT REPLY TEST TEST TEST"
$msg.Body = "$Today The daily VMP check TEST TEST TEST"
$msg.Body = $file
$msg.Attachments.Add($att)
$smtp.Send($msg)
$att.Dispose()

hi Subsun
well, thanks for the pointer - bit of tweaking and it worked for me..!
(Chris-Dent - he's a genius, )
Thanks for that...

For anyone intersted, here's the full code I use:


# this section gets the server from a list
foreach ($server in (Get-Content allservers.txt)) {
Get-WmiObject Win32_Volume -ComputerName $server | where {$_.caption -like "M:\*"} | `

# this section does the formatting and percentage used calculation
  Format-Table `
    @{l="Server";e={$_.server}}, `
    @{l="Drive Letter";e={$_.caption}}, `
    @{l="Free Space on Disk (GB)";e={"{0:n2}" -f ($_.freespace/1gb)}}, `
    @{l="Total Disk Space (GB)";e={"{0:n2}" -f ($_.Capacity/1gb).toString("F02")}}, `
    @{l="Percentage Used";e={ "{0:P2}" -f (1 - ([Int64]$_.FreeSpace / [Int64]$_.Capacity)) }} | Out-File "c:\scripts\testing\MOUNTS1.log"
    }

# this section picks up the file and emails it to addressees listed
$file = "c:\scripts\testing\LOG.log"
$smtpServer = "YourSMTPServer"
$msg = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage
$att = New-Object Net.Mail.Attachment($file)
$smtp = New-Object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
$Today = Get-Date
$msg.From = "user@company.int"
$msg.To.Add("user@company.int")
$msg.Subject = "subject here"
$msg.Body = "body contents here"
$msg.Attachments.Add($att)
$smtp.Send($msg)
$att.Dispose()
