why not just use psexec to do this  ?
Not that powershell can't however with psexec it is a simple
psexec @listofservers.txt cmd /c msiexec \\path to msi /flags

Would suggest you add "/L*vx %temp%\install.log" to your command line.  If %TEMP% won't resolve properly (say through psexec) you could create a transform with the property "MsiLogging" = "voicewarmupx" and then it will create a randomized name in temp - but at least you have a log somewhere.  With 99 there is a good chance you'll have some failures.

Thanks, I was looking for a PowerShell solution but psexec looks like it will work better.
I've never used psexec so the full command would look like this?

psexec @listofservers.txt cmd /c msiexec \\path to msi /L*vx %temp%\install.log
