Hi All,

I need a powershell script to read in a text file that contains computer name and look for DNS suffix for this connection, then print out the computer name and the DNS suffix for this connection.

Lets say that you have computers listed in computers.txt file. Then you can try something like this:
Get-Content .\computers.txt | Foreach-Object {Get-Wmiobject Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -ComputerName $_ -Property * -Filter "DNSHostName = '$_'" | select DNSHostName,Description,DNSDomainSuffixSearchOrder}

Open in new window

To retrieve the original info of each computer, you need a single, valid user for all computers, and run the script under that account. Or provide a PSCredential object with each WMI command, like
$creds = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ("MyUser", 
    (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force "MyPwd") )
gc .\computers.txt | % {
  Get-Wmiobject Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -ComputerName $_ -PsCredentials $creds -Property * -Filter "DNSHostName = '$_'" |
  select DNSHostName, Description, DNSDomainSuffixSearchOrder
}

Open in new window

(if you want to use a single account different from your one the script is running in).
Usually you will provide a domain or local admin account for that purpose.
