Does anyone have a quick script that will check the file (date and time) below on multiple servers?  I need to verify this file on over 1000 servers. I would like the output in comma delimited format.  I appreciate the help!


c:\documents and settings\mandatory\ntuser.man

Will the list of the 100 server names be in a TXT file?

Will the person running the script have access to the C$ administrative share on all the servers?

See if this gives you some ideas.

@echo off
setlocal

set Servers=servers.txt
set Output=results.csv
set File=c$\documents and settings\mandatory\ntuser.man

(
  for /F "usebackq tokens=*" %%A in ("%Servers%") do (
    if exist "\\%%A\%File%" (
      for %%B in ("\\%%A\%File%") do echo "\\%%A\%File%","%%~tB"
    ) else (
      echo "\\%%A\%File%","MISSING"
    )
  )
) > "%Output%"
