Can PowerShell read the Personal Store for certificate expiration dates?

I'm looking for a PowerShell script that can access the Personal store on a Windows Server and alert on Certs about to expire.

Specifically: When the cert is going to expire in 15 days, write an event to the Application log.

Thanks,
Tom

Hey,

That shouldn't be too tricky actually...

Can you see if this gives you the right certificates?

Get-ChildItem cert:\LocalMachine\My

If it does, all we need to do is filter on the "NotAfter" field and post the results to the event log, neither of which is particularly hard either.

I don't see any expiration date. Was it suppose to show the expiration date?

Thanks,
Tom
