Quest PowerShell used to get services

WE do not have 2008r2 DC's nor do we have active directory web installed.  I'm trying to use Quest tools with native powershell to pull some reports.

I need to obtain all services running on computers in a specific OU.

Get-QADComputer -SearchRoot 'OU=App,OU=Servers,DC=xxxx,DC=xxx,DC=xxx' | Get-Service

When i run this it does not work.  

Thanks

$computers = Get-QADComputer -SearchRoot 'OU=App,OU=Servers,DC=xxxx,DC=xxx,DC=xxx' | Select -expand Name

$computers | Get-Service

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Yeah, thats pretty much what I came up with.

$computers = Get-QADComputer -SearchRoot 'OU=App,OU=Servers,DC=xxxx,DC=xxx,DC=xxx' | Select -Expand Name

Foreach ($computer in $computers) {

    Get-Service -Computername $computer | 
        Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name Computer -Value $Computer -passthru | 
        Select Computer,Status,Name,DisplayName | 
        Format-Table -auto
    
}

Open in new window

Cool.  Any way to ouput the account the service is running under?
niaidsdtAuthor Commented:
looks like the get-service doesn't have the smarts to figure out all information about the services running.  Ended up having to use


   Get-WmiObject win32_service -ComputerName $computer |
   select SystemName,DisplayName,StartName |
   Format-Table -auto

Ended up using this one

cls
##      On Error continue
"$ErrorActionPreference = silentlyContinue"
$log = 'C:\Log\services.txt'
$computers = Get-QADComputer -SearchRoot 'ou=servers,DC=xx,DC=xx,DC=xx' | Select -Expand Name

Foreach ($computer in $computers)
{

   Get-WmiObject win32_service -ComputerName $computer |
   select SystemName,DisplayName,StartName |
   
   Format-Table -auto >> $log  
}
