Check this line:

$txtSid = ([System.BitConverter]::ToString($sid[0])).Replace(‘-’," ”)

Are you missing " in your code?

What are you hoping to accomplish with this script ?

It seems to me there might be much easier ways to get what you need.

I think the property is $ts.Millisecond, not $ts.Milliseconds

I am trying to find the ldap lookup time across trusting domains for SCOM 2012 server and agents assigned to domain controllers. If there is an easier way fine, please help. If you stick with the scripts is there also away to have the server defined in "$domain = ‘LDAP://" and the response time defined in a spreadsheet, (csv) or html report, showing server and response time? These domains are international domains aspread across the world.

Yup.
It's date.Millisecond, timespan.Milliseconds.
Confusing, isn't it ? :)
