Hi guys, i have the following code which worked until i tried to use the where condition. Im looking for only values less than 5 to be part of the output. i think im almost there. Any advice would be great

thanks

$Servers = Get-Content  C:\Users\Downloads\exchange.txt


foreach ( $Server1 in $Servers ) {
@"
$server1
"@

$disk = Get-WmiObject Win32_LogicalDisk -ComputerName $Server1 -Filter "DeviceID='C:'" |
  Where-Object {$_.FreeSpace -lt "5"}

$disk.FreeSpace /1GB -as [int]
 }

Assuming you want servers with less than 5GB available space, you handled it correctly in the output you're generating: FreeSpace is in bytes.
You don't get any output because in all likelihood, you don't have servers with less than 5 bytes available.
Try Where-Object {$_.FreeSpace -lt 5GB}

You can try this code to display the output with server name and free space..
Get-Content  C:\Users\Downloads\exchange.txt | % {
Get-WmiObject Win32_LogicalDisk -ComputerName $_ -Filter "DeviceID='C:'" | 
 Select __SERVER,@{N="FreeSpace GB";E={[math]::Round(($_.FreeSpace /1GB),2)}} |
 Where-Object {$_."FreeSpace GB" -lt 5}
}

Open in new window

Or you can use export-csv to export the details to a csv file..
Get-Content  C:\Users\Downloads\exchange.txt | % {
Get-WmiObject Win32_LogicalDisk -ComputerName $_ -Filter "DeviceID='C:'" | 
 Select __SERVER,@{N="FreeSpace GB";E={[math]::Round(($_.FreeSpace /1GB),2)}} |
 Where-Object {$_."FreeSpace GB" -lt 5}
} | Export-csv c:\report.csv -nti
