Powershell - details output file .

I normally dont need to do this on such a large scale but I need to add a group to about 4,000 servers . The script below works fine with just a couple .. can someome help me modify this so it outputs a file with information if it did add the group or it could not connect to the server ?

GC Servers.txt | %{

$domain="MyDomain"
$group = "MyGroup"

([adsi]"WinNT://$_/Administrators,group").Add("WinNT://$domain/$group,group")
}

I have done some modification but not tested... :-) . Check and see if it gives you the expected result.
$ErrorActionPreference = "Stop"
GC Servers.txt | %{
$Serv = $_
$domain="MyDomain"
$group = "Guests"
	Try {
	([adsi]"WinNT://$Serv/Administrators,group").Add("WinNT://$domain/$group,group")
	"" | Select @{N="Server";e={$Serv}},@{N="Status";e={"Success"}}
	}
	Catch{
	"" | Select @{N="Server";e={$Serv}},@{N="Status";e={"Failed"}}
	}
}

You can accomplish this very easily using Restricted Groups in Group Policy. This is a computer policy but no reboot required. Wait for group policy to refresh and the AD group will be added to all of the servers/workstations you specify for this GPO.
