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"} 
    }

}
}

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

}
}
}
