Is there a way in Exchange 2010 to user a defined variable such as $exchnageserver = "srv1", "srv2" and pass these values to use in get-mailboxdatabasecopystatus -Server cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell?  This would give me the result for various servers that I need to obtain this information for and I'd prefer not to have to do it one at  a time?

The % sign is a powershell alias for foreach:

PS C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop> get-alias

CommandType     Name                                               ModuleName
-----------     ----                                               ----------
Alias           % -> ForEach-Object
Alias           ? -> Where-Object
