Pull attributes from multiple machines with powershell

Hi EE

I am needing to pull the attributes below from multiple machines .. The line below pulls it but I am also receiving an error .

gc servers.txt | Get-ADComputer -Properties * | Select Name,OperatingSystem,OperatingSystemServicePack,LastLogonDate,CanonicalName | Export-Csv sample.csv -nti

This is the error I am receiving .. any ideas ?

Get-ADComputer : The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for the command either because the command does not take pipeline input or the input and
its properties do not match any of the parameters that take pipeline input.
At line:1 char:18

Do you have any empty lines in servers.txt?

What if you try the following code?
GC servers.txt | ?{$_}|Get-ADComputer -Properties * | Select Name,OperatingSystem,OperatingSystemServicePack,LastLogonDate,CanonicalName | Export-Csv sample.csv -nti

You probably need to wrap it in a foreach loop..

get-content -path .\servers.txt | foreach-object { Get-ADComputer -Properties * -identity $_ | Select-Object -Property Name,OperatingSystem,OperatingSystemServicePack,LastLogonDate,CanonicalName } | Export-Csv -filepath .\sample.csv -notypeinformation

Open in new window


I removed the shortcuts/aliases, and used the full path names for other people.. (it makes it easier to read).
