Need some help with PowerShell script

Hi!

I found a script to read the local accounts from a server. I need to modify the script so it can do what it does on a REMOTE SERVER.

The best would be, that i fill a txt file with the server names. Then the script uses these server names to retreive the local accounts. Can someone help me with that?

Param
(
	[Parameter(Position=0,Mandatory=$false)]
	[ValidateNotNullorEmpty()]
	[Alias('cn')][String[]]$ComputerName=$Env:COMPUTERNAME,
	[Parameter(Position=1,Mandatory=$false)]
	[Alias('un')][String[]]$AccountName,
	[Parameter(Position=2,Mandatory=$false)]
	[Alias('cred')][System.Management.Automation.PsCredential]$Credential
)
	
$Obj = @()

Foreach($Computer in $ComputerName)
{
	If($Credential)
	{
		$AllLocalAccounts = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_UserAccount -Namespace "root\cimv2" `
		-Filter "LocalAccount='$True'" -ComputerName $Computer -Credential $Credential -ErrorAction Stop
	}
	else
	{
		$AllLocalAccounts = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_UserAccount -Namespace "root\cimv2" `
		-Filter "LocalAccount='$True'" -ComputerName $Computer -ErrorAction Stop
	}
	
	Foreach($LocalAccount in $AllLocalAccounts)
	{
		$Object = New-Object -TypeName PSObject
		
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Name" -Value $LocalAccount.Name
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Full Name" -Value $LocalAccount.FullName
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Caption" -Value $LocalAccount.Caption
      	$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Disabled" -Value $LocalAccount.Disabled
      	$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Status" -Value $LocalAccount.Status
      	$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "LockOut" -Value $LocalAccount.LockOut
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Password Changeable" -Value $LocalAccount.PasswordChangeable
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Password Expires" -Value $LocalAccount.PasswordExpires
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Password Required" -Value $LocalAccount.PasswordRequired
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "SID" -Value $LocalAccount.SID
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "SID Type" -Value $LocalAccount.SIDType
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Account Type" -Value $LocalAccount.AccountType
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Domain" -Value $LocalAccount.Domain
		$Object|Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name "Description" -Value $LocalAccount.Description
		
		$Obj+=$Object
	}
	
	If($AccountName)
	{
		Foreach($Account in $AccountName)
		{
			$Obj|Where-Object{$_.Name -like "$Account"}
		}
	}
	else
	{
		$Obj
	}
}

Looks like you just need to supply a paremeter for the remote computer(s)

.\ScriptName.ps1 -cn Computer1,Computer2, etc...

It 'defaults' to the local computername with this parameter definition:

[Alias('cn')][String[]]$ComputerName=$Env:COMPUTERNAME,

You can change that to whatever as the default:
[Alias('cn')][String[]]$ComputerName='Computer1'

Html would require some further code adjustments, unless you wanted 'boring'.
Your script is producing objects for each server, so you can simply pipe the results to your output...

.\ScriptName.ps1 -cn Computer1,Computer2 | out-file c:\output.txt

or

.\ScriptName.ps1 -cn Computer1,Computer2 | export-csv c:\output.csv
