hello,
I'm trying to get a list of computers from Active Directory and send it as email to some people.
with
Get-ADComputer -filter * -searchbase "ou=computers,dc=domain,dc=com" | foreach { $_.name }

I get the following result (in a column)
computer1
computer2

when I set this to a variable and get the output to the variable with
$list = Get-ADComputer -filter * -searchbase "ou=computers,dc=domain,dc=com" | foreach { $_.name }
write-host $list

I get the below result (in a row)
computer1 computer2

is there a way to show this as it's original state (in a column)
computer1
computer2


thank you

Out-String? can't say i've ever used that before.

I would do it like this:

$list = Get-ADComputer -filter * -searchbase "ou=computers,dc=domain,dc=com"
$list | Select Name

Open in new window


Should work anyways.
