Hi All,

I need a PS to read in a text that contains workstation name, then look for c:\folder and see if a perticular file is in there, give me yes/no result in a csv file with machine name,

Please advise.

Thanks

You can do something like this

$Comps = get-content c:\servers.txt
$Comps | foreach {
If (Test-Path \\$_\c$\folder\file){
    "$_, YES"
    }
    Else{
        "$_,NO"
    }
}

That is a very simplistic approach, and requires that
the remote PC is reachable, else network timeouts will happen, slowing down the script significantly, and showing error messages on the console.
we have admin privileges, and the default shares are not disabled by GPO or registry settings.
Nevertheless, it could work for you that way.
