Last Logon Date of Machines

Hi there, I have a list of machines in a CSV and i'd like to import the CSV into powershell and then add a column with a list of last logon dates from Active Directory for these machines and output to a new file. Is this possible?

Thanks so much!

Assuming your .CSV looks like this.
Name
comp1
comp2

Open in new window

Tip for the future - if you only have one column, leave out the header and just have a simple text file rather than a .CSV.

This should work.
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Import-CSV input.csv | ForEach `
{
    Get-ADComputer $_.name -Properties LastLogonDate
} | Select Name,LastLogonDate |
 Export-CSV output.csv -notype

Open in new window
