C:\server.txt is the input file with server names..

GC C:\server.txt | % {
$Ping = Test-Connection $_ -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
If ($Ping){
Get-QADComputer $ping[0].Address -IncludedProperties lastLogonTimestamp,Location | 
Select @{N="Server";e={$ping[0].Address}},@{N="IP";e={$ping[0].IPV4Address.IPAddressToString}},lastLogonTimestamp,Location
 Write-Host "$_ not reachable"

What if you run
Get-QADComputer Servername -IncludedProperties lastLogonTimestamp,Location
