I have a few domains that are not connected to the internet, can you just have the output go to an html file. Also is there a way to include timestamps for password and lastlogon converted into readable format? For both email output and the html file.

Combine two scripts and email one output
Asked by: hlatenSolved by: Subsun Can someone help with combining two scripts together? The first script is a script that collects stale computers that have not logged in within a set number of days and then emails the output to an individual or team. The second script pings computers and states whether they are alive and pinging or dead and not pinging. I would like to be able to ping the computers that are listed in the output of the first scripts and have a column in the emailed report that is the output of the pinged script.


Find Stale Computer script:


<#
      .SYNOPSIS
      Create HTML e-mail report of stale Computers based on input parameters

      .DESCRIPTION
      Find all Computers in a given OU or domain which have not authenticated to the domain in a given number of days or have never authenticated to domain. Script uses both the lastLogonTimestamp and pwdLastSet attributes of the user object to determine when the user last authenticated. E-mail settings are configurable within script.
      NOTE: This is not real-time data!

      .PARAMETER OU
      Active Directory Organizational Unit to restrict search. Needs to be in LDAP syntax, (ex. "OU=Department,DC=domain,DC=com"). Entire domain can be searched using "DC=domain,DC=com" syntax.

      .PARAMETER NumberOfDays
      Script will return Computer accounts that have not authenticated since this date. DateTime object. Defaults to 90 days ago.
     
      .PARAMETER LogFilePath
      Path to directory where log file will be placed. Defaults to "C:\Scripts\Logs\StaleUsers"

      .EXAMPLE
      .\Generate-StaleComputerReport.ps1 -OU "DC=Domain,DC=COM"
     
      Searches entire domain for computers thathave not authenticated within the last 90 days
     
      .EXAMPLE
      .\Generate-StaleComputerReport-rc.ps1 -OU "DC=www,DC=yahoo,DC=com" -NumberOfDays (Get-Date).AddDays(-120) -LogfilePath "C:\temp"
     
      Searches entire domain for Computers that have not authenticated within the last 120 days. It saves the log file in C:\temp

Subsun Member Since: 05/14/2009 1653 Solution(s) 2 Article(s) I didn't get time to go through the code you posted but the following code should give you the inactive computer account details with ping status. If you want to add any other attributes to report then let me know..

$Computers =  Search-ADAccount -AccountInactive -ComputersOnly -TimeSpan 90 | % {
      If (Test-Connection $_.Name -Quiet -Count 2){
      $_ | Select Name,@{N="Ping Status";E={"UP"}}
      }Else {
      $_ | Select Name,@{N="Ping Status";E={"Down"}}
      }
}

$a = "<style>"
$a = $a + "BODY{background-color:white;}"
$a = $a + "TABLE{border-width: 1px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;border-collapse: collapse;}"
$a = $a + "TH{border-width: 1px;padding: 3px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;background-color:Gray}"
$a = $a + "TD{border-width: 1px;padding: 3px;border-style: solid;border-color: black;background-color:White}"
$a = $a + "</style>"

If ($Computers -ne $null) {
Send-MailMessage -From From@domain.com -To To@domain.com -Subject "Inactive Computer Report" -BodyAsHtml ($Computers | ConvertTo-HTML -head $a | Out-String) -SmtpServer smtp.domain.com
}
