I have the following script

[PowerShell]

clear
function check-remotefile {
   
      PROCESS {

 $file = "\\$_\\c$\temp\fulldotnetfx35.exe"  

                                if (test-path $file)

                {

                echo "$_ ,OK"
                  }
            else
            {
                  echo($_ + ",Not Found")
            }
      }
}


Get-Content  c:\DotNetFile.txt | check-remotefile


I need to modify it so that it will tell me when a pc is not reachable. and only if its reachable then is the file there.

You could add something like this to your script


{
	if((get-wmiobject -query "SELECT * FROM Win32_PingStatus WHERE Address='$comp'").statuscode -eq 0)
     	{
	#put what you wish to process here
	#this will process if the pingstatus = 0 above, meaning the system is ONLINE
        }

    #if the system is NOT ONLINE, report as such
    else    
    {write-output "$comp is not reachable"
}

I could use the following script and include the test file if alive

"Computername   True/False" | out-file -filePath “c:\DotNetResults.txt”

$readfile=get-content "c:\DotNetFile.txt"

$file = "\\$_\\c$\temp\fulldotnetfx35.exe"  

foreach($readf in $readfile)
{
$ALive=get-wmiobject win32_pingstatus -Filter "Address='$readf'" | Select-Object statuscode

if($ALive.statuscode -eq 0)
{ $readf  + " ,Online" | out-file -filePath “c:\DotNetResults.txt”  -append }

else
{$readf  + " ,Offline" | out-file -filePath “c:\DotNetResults.txt”  -append }
}

This is what I am trying to do

 
{ $readf  + " ,Online ,"  test-path $readf $file)| out-file -filePath “c:\DotNetResults.txt”  -append }

Output would be

PCNAME, Online, File OK

Try this code...

clear

Function check-remotefile {
    PROCESS {
    If (Test-Connection -ComputerName "$_" -Quiet){
   
              $_ + "computer responded"
              
              $file = "\\$_\\c$\temp\fulldotnetfx35.exe"
       
              If (test-path $file)        
                  {          
                        echo "$_ ,OK"
                  }
              Else
                  {
                        echo($_ + ",Not Found")
                  }
                  }
           
    Else{
            $_ + "computer did not respond"
        }
