# I need this powershell script modified to export the machine name and what version of sep is on it into a csv or txt file

Currently this script will run against the hostlist.csv and echo the sep versionresults at the end.  I am looking for a way to get the computer names and sep version exported to a csv or txt file.

$File = Import-Csv 'c:\temp\hostlist.csv' #NOTE: the first line of this file must say machinename foreach ($line in $file) {$machinename = $line.machinename #Continue the script even if an error happens trap [Exception] {continue}$reg = [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey("LocalMachine",$MachineName) #Set the Reg Container$key = "SOFTWARE\\Symantec\\Symantec Endpoint Protection\\SMC"

$regkey = "" #clears the value between loop runs$regkey = $reg.opensubkey($key)

$SEPver = "" #clears the value between loop runs #NOTE: the values between the " ' " symbols are the key you're looking for$SEPver = $regKey.GetValue('ProductVersion')$Results = $MachineName ,$SEPver

Write-host $Results } Asked: ###### Who is Participating? Improve company productivity with a Business Account.Sign Up x Commented: Sorry, but the above suggestion wouldn't work. You can't redirect Write-Host. Using the foreach-Object cmdlet it's easy to pipe the results to Export-CSV, but when using the foreach statement it takes a bit more thought. If you surround the foreach statement with array notation "@()", then you can pipe that to Export-CSV. You could also manually construct a .CSV file line by line using Write-Output and cmdlets line Add-Content, but Export-CSV is a little simpler. $File = Import-Csv 'c:\temp\hostlist.csv' #NOTE: the first line of this file must say machinename

@(foreach ($line in$file)
{
$machinename =$line.machinename
#Continue the script even if an error happens
trap [Exception] {continue}

$reg = [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey("LocalMachine",$MachineName)
#Set the Reg Container
$key = "SOFTWARE\\Symantec\\Symantec Endpoint Protection\\SMC"$regkey = "" #clears the value between loop runs
$regkey =$reg.opensubkey($key)$SEPver = "" #clears the value between loop runs
#NOTE: the values between the " ' " symbols are the key you're looking for
$SEPver =$regKey.GetValue('ProductVersion')

New-Object PsObject -Property @{
Computer = $MachineName SEPVersion =$SEPver
}
}) | Export-CSV results.csv -notype

Not sure if I have understood your question correctly.
Assuming that your current script is already able to find the sep version on remote server and you need help only in formatting the the output, you only need to change last line to

Write-Host "$MachineName ,$SEPver"

This will produce output in csv format which you can save in a file using output redirection (>).

Certainly not. Write-Host writes to the console, no redirection here!
#NOTE: the first line of this file must say machinename
Import-Csv 'c:\temp\hostlist.csv' | % {
#Continue the script even if an error happens
trap [Exception] {$SEPver =$regkey = ""; continue}

$machinename =$_.machinename
$reg = [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey("LocalMachine",$MachineName)
$regkey =$reg.opensubkey('SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SMC')
Write-Output $MachineName ,$regKey.GetValue('ProductVersion')
} | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation 'C:\temp\ee\SEPversion.csv'

However, do you really want to have the input file to be in CSV format for a single column only? Just using a text file containing all machine names would be sufficient ...
