Was expecting the command to take in a server's name,
the domain login id & password.  Could you enhance
that command?

> don't think there is any way to output the password of the user
I don't need the above but I need to run the script from the AD
server & it will prompt for my domain id+password to login to
the server I'm trying to get the information.

I don't want to login individually to each server (as there are
hundreds of them), I want to gather the data just by login to
the AD server to run the script & the script pulls the data from
the hundreds of servers in the domain.
