Take a look at this question I helped with

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/Powershell/Q_26194877.html

I used adfind in my example but you can see that Chris used the Quest powershell cmdlets.

You can also see example 4 in the get-qacomputer help   http://wiki.powergui.org/index.php/Get-QADComputer#EXAMPLE_1

Thanks
Mike

This command "Get-qadcomputer -sizelimit 0 | select-object name, operatingsystem" did not give any result. What is Output file name?
And how can i pause the cmd mode in powershell?
By the way, the command you wrote above dear xxdcmast is a powershell command?
