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

Try this.

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

$computers | Get-Service

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
    
}

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  
}
