Hi All

I have the script below that an EEE helped me create but I wanted to see if we can tweak it a bit with the output file .

I attached a sample of the output file , lines 2,4,6 are for local accounts on this server .. can someone help me change the output file so that local accounts do not have the domain information?  local accounts show " MYLAB/ " which is the domain name. The data just seems a bit confusing since these are local accounts so the line should not include the domain name ..  id rather the output does not show the domain name for local accounts .

also , can the parent column show the word Local for local accounts and MYLAB for the domain accounts/groups or does it have to show " WinNT:// " ?

This is the script I am using.
function get-localusers {
    begin {}
    Process {
      $Select = "Name","Class","Parent" | %{  
        Invoke-Expression "@{n='$_';e={ `$_.GetType().InvokeMember('$_', 'GetProperty', `$Null, `$_, `$Null) }}"  
      If (Test-Connection $strComputer -Count 2 -Quiet){
        $adminlist =""
        $computer = [ADSI]("WinNT://" + $strComputer + ",computer")
        $AdminGroup = $computer.psbase.children.find("Administrators")
        $Adminmembers= $AdminGroup.psbase.invoke("Members") | Select $Select
              foreach ($admin in $Adminmembers) {
              $admin | Select @{N="ComputerName";E={$strComputer}},@{N="Administrators";E={"$(($_.parent) -replace "WinNT://")\$($_.Name)"}},Class,Parent
                  }                              }
            { "" | Select @{N="ComputerName";E={$strComputer}},@{N="Administrators";E={"Access Denied"}},Class,Parent}
      Else {

            "" | Select @{N="ComputerName";E={$strComputer}},@{N="Administrators";E={"Not able to Ping"}},Class,Parent

end {}

Get-Content "C:\Powershell\Servers.txt" | get-localusers | Select ComputerName,Administrators,Class,Parent | Export-Csv "C:\Powershell\LocalAdm$((get-date).toString('MM-dd-yyyy')).csv" -NTI
