Is there a Powershell command or series of commands I can use to remove a text based list of computers from AD?  In other words, I have a text file containing a list of computers that need to be removed from AD.  Any idea how I might do this?

If you have windows 2008 R2 or later domain controller then you can try..
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
GC C:\input.txt | %{Remove-ADComputer -Identity $_ -confirm:$false}

Open in new window

Input file format...

ComputerB
ComputerC

Open in new window
