Search for all AD computer with OS -like 2012........... and display the result

$servers = Get-ADComputer -Filter {OperatingSystem -like "*2012*"} -Properties *
foreach ($server in $servers)
{
$Servername = $Server.name

$registry = [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey([Microsoft.Win32.RegistryHive]::LocalMachine, $serverName)
$baseKey = $registry.OpenSubKey(“SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}”)
$Subkey = $basekey.GetSubKeyNames()  
foreach ($Sub in $Subkey)
{
if ($sub -like "0*")
{
$Result = $baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("*SpeedDuplex") 

switch ($Result) 
    { 
        0 {"$($baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("DriverDesc")) is Auto Negotiation on Server $serverName"} 
        1 {"$($baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("DriverDesc")) is 10 Mbps Half Duplex on Server $serverName"} 
        2 {"$($baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("DriverDesc")) is 10 Mbps Full Duplex on Server $serverName"} 
        3 {"$($baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("DriverDesc")) is 100 Mbps Half Duplex on Server $serverName"} 
        4 {"$($baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("DriverDesc")) is 100 Mbps Full Duplex on Server $serverName"} 
        5 {"$($baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("DriverDesc")) is 1.0 Gbps Half Duplex Server $serverName"} 
        6 {"$($baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("DriverDesc")) is 1.0 Gbps Full Duplex on Server $serverName"}
        7 {"$($baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("DriverDesc")) is in an unknown speed on Server $serverName"} 
    }

}
}

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Thanks Justin. I ran the script and found it running, but everytime it shows up as the Nic is set to Auto Negotiation.
I tried changing the registry from 0 to 4, but still it shows Auto Negotiation.

I changed a bit, it should display the registry *SpeedDuplex numbers and see if that is correct, and remember your registry need to be closed after you changed it on the remote server.

$servers = Get-ADComputer -Filter {OperatingSystem -like "*2012*"} -Properties *
foreach ($server in $servers)
{
$Servername = $Server.name

$registry = [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey([Microsoft.Win32.RegistryHive]::LocalMachine, $serverName)
$baseKey = $registry.OpenSubKey(“SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}”)
$Subkey = $basekey.GetSubKeyNames()  
foreach ($Sub in $Subkey)
{
if ($sub -like "0*")
{
$Result = $baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("*SpeedDuplex") 

Write-Host $result "of" $($baseKey.OpenSubkey($sub).GetValue("DriverDesc")) "on" $Servername

}
}
}
