$servers =Get-Content "C:\server.txt"

foreach ( $servers1 in $servers ) {

 $copy = New-Item -ItemType directory -Path  "\\$servers1\c$\utils"

this assumes the utils directory already exists.


is New-Item the utils locally?  If you're copyign the whole directory wouldn't it just be "\\$servers1\c$\"?
