Here is a script that should work:


function Get-Cert($computer)
{
	$ro = [System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.OpenFlags]"ReadOnly"
	$lm = [System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.StoreLocation]"LocalMachine"
	$store = new-object System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Store("\\$computer\My", $lm)
	$store.Open($ro)
	$store.Certificates
	
}
gc c:\serverlist.txt | % {
	$computer = $_;
	Get-Cert $_ | % {		
		$sub = $_.subject; $report += "$computer, $sub`n"
	}
	
}
$report | out-file C:\certreport.csv

Hi,

we are getting below error while running the script

PS C:\Temp\Bios> server.domain.com
server.domain.com : The term 'server.domain.com' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet
function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verif
path is correct and try again.

Ok so it seems like you are missing something:

Steps:
1. Save the code snippet as <script>.ps1     (<script> being whatever name you want to give it)
Change the first line to map correctly to your server list, which should be a text file with one servername on each line.

$serverlist = "C:\foldername\serverlist.txt"
function Get-Cert($computer)
{
	$ro = [System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.OpenFlags]"ReadOnly"
	$lm = [System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.StoreLocation]"LocalMachine"
	$store = new-object System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Store("\\$computer\My", $lm)
	$store.Open($ro)
	$store.Certificates
	
}
gc $serverlist | % {
	$computer = $_;
	Get-Cert $_ | % {		
		$sub = $_.subject; $report += "$computer, $sub`n"
	}
	
}
$report | out-file C:\certreport.csv

Open in new window

                                         

2. Open a powershell window and navigate to the path where you saved the ps1 file above
3. Ensure your server list which will be called with (gc c:\serverlist.txt) is in the right location ...
e.g.  C:\foldername\serverlist.txt
4. Run the script

Can you please post the error you are getting.

It isn't possible to help with seeing the error.

E.g your previous post shows:

PS C:\Temp\Bios> server.domain.com
server.domain.com : The term 'server.domain.com' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet

But this is not a known command nor called out anywhere in the script I provided

Made an update to add the expiry to the values returned:
function Get-Cert($computer)
{
	$ro = [System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.OpenFlags]"ReadOnly"
	$lm = [System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.StoreLocation]"LocalMachine"
	$store = new-object System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Store("\\$computer\My", $lm)
	$store.Open($ro)
	$store.Certificates
	
}
gc c:\serverlist.txt | % {
	$computer = $_;
	Get-Cert $_ | % {		
		$sub = $_.subject;$expiry = $_.notafter $report += "$computer, $sub, $expiry`n"
	}
	
}
$report | out-file C:\certreport.csv
