I know how to do all this in VBScript, but I'm forcing myself to do everything in PowerShell now, cause I'll never learn it if I don't use it...

I'm simply trying to parse a list of servers (I have a DSN for each) and execute a stored procedure on them.  Can someone point out what I've got wrong?

I keep getting "Exception setting "ConnectionString": "Keyword not supported: 'dsn'."" error on line 7.

$Servers = Get-Content C:\Scripts\servers.txt

ForEach($Server in $Servers)
$connstr = "DSN=$Server;"
$SqlConnection = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection 
$SQLConnection.ConnectionString = $connstr
$SqlCommandText = "exec stored_procedure"
$SqlCmd = New-Object System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand($SqlCommandText, $SQLConnection)
