Powershell - How to pull all Local Accounts from multiple machines

Hi EE

I have the script below that Subsun helped me with . It was originally set to pull the member of the Administrators group but I was trying to modify it to pull all Local Accounts and its pulling members of the local Users group only not all Local Accounts .

Any ideas ?  I dont have to use this scrtipt if someone already has something different.

function get-localusers {
        param(
    [Parameter(Mandatory=$true,valuefrompipeline=$true)]
    [string]$strComputer)
    begin {}
    Process {
      $Select = "Name","Class" | %{  
        Invoke-Expression "@{n='$_';e={ `$_.GetType().InvokeMember('$_', 'GetProperty', `$Null, `$_, `$Null) }}"  
      }
      If (Test-Connection $strComputer -Count 2 -Quiet){
        $Users =""
        $computer = [ADSI]("WinNT://" + $strComputer + ",computer")
        $UsersGroup = $computer.psbase.children.find("Users")
        $Usermembers= $UsersGroup.psbase.invoke("Members") | Select $Select
              foreach ($Users in $Usermembers) {
              $Users | Select @{N="ComputerName";E={$strComputer}},@{N="Users";E={$_.Name}},Class
                  }
            }
      Else {
            "" | Select @{N="ComputerName";E={$strComputer}},@{N="Users";E={"Not able to Ping"}},Class
        }
     }
end {}
}
Get-Content "e:\Projects\servers\Servers.txt" | get-localusers | Select ComputerName,Users,Class | Export-Csv "e:\Projects\Servers\LocalTest_$((get-date).toString('MM-dd-yyyy')).csv" -NTI

If you need only users in report then try..
function get-localusers {
    param(
    [Parameter(Mandatory=$true,valuefrompipeline=$true)]
    [string]$strComputer)
    begin {}
    Process {
      If (Test-Connection $strComputer -Count 2 -Quiet){
	$Users = Get-WmiObject Win32_UserAccount -ComputerName $strComputer
        foreach ($User in $Users) {
         $User | Select @{N="ComputerName";E={$strComputer}},@{N="User";E={$_.Name}}
         }
        }
      Else {
            "" | Select @{N="ComputerName";E={$strComputer}},@{N="User";E={"Not able to Ping"}}
        }
     }
end {}
}
Get-Content "e:\Projects\servers\Servers.txt" | get-localusers | Select ComputerName,User | Export-Csv "e:\Projects\Servers\LocalTest_$((get-date).toString('MM-dd-yyyy')).csv" -NTI

I just tested the code and I am getting the following result..

"ComputerName","User"
"ServerA","Not able to Ping"
"ServerB","Not able to Ping"
"TestSRV","Administrator"
"TestSRV","Guest"
"TestSRV","TestUser"

Open in new window


Are you getting the user details when you run the following command?

Get-WmiObject Win32_UserAccount -ComputerName ServerA
