Need Help with existing powershell script

Greeting Experts,
I need some help with existing PowerShell script designed to poll Active Directory and get a list of Users and Groups located in the LocalAdminGroup for each server. The Script its self-works with no problem but I need to change the formatting on the output file…..  Instead of putting all of the users/OU Groups to one row I would like to put each users & OU Group to each rule (i.e. one user or ou  to row). I have put an example of the exiting format and new format I am looking for…. Is there somebody out there that can help me with this…    

exmaple 1      Existing formate
PCName1      User1, User2, OU1, OU2
PCName2      User1, User2, OU1, OU3
PCName3      User1, User2, OU1, OU4
PCName4      User1, User2, OU1, OU5
PCName5      User1, User2, OU1, OU6


example 2       New formate
PCName1      User1
PCName1      User2
PCName1      OU1
PCName1      OU2
PCName2      User1
PCName2      User2
PCName2      OU1
PCName2      OU3
PCName3      User1
PCName3      User2
PCName3      OU1
PCName3      OU4






function 

get-localusers { 
        param( 
    [Parameter(Mandatory=$true,valuefrompipeline=$true)] 
    [string]$strComputer) 
    begin {} 
    Process { 
        $adminlist ="" 
        $computer = [ADSI]("WinNT://" + $strComputer + ",computer") 
        $AdminGroup = $computer.psbase.children.find("Administrators") 
        $Adminmembers= $AdminGroup.psbase.invoke("Members") | %{$_.GetType().InvokeMember("Name", 'GetProperty', $null, $_, $null)}         
        foreach ($admin in $Adminmembers) { $adminlist = $adminlist + $admin + "," }          
        $Computer = New-Object psobject 
        $computer | Add-Member noteproperty ComputerName $strComputer 
        $computer | Add-Member noteproperty Administrators $adminlist   
        Write-Output $computer        
         } 
end {} 
} 
 
Get-QADComputer -OSName "*Windows*Server*" | ForEach-Object {$_.Name}| get-localusers | Export-Csv "C:\LocalAdminGroups_$((get-date).toString('MM-dd-yyyy'))v2.csv"

the suggestion works... but I am looking to scan the entire AD enterprise domain...... Is there a way to update the script for all Devices.... not just the top 1000

You know that is a really, really hefty thing to do? Querying a huge amount of machines for local admin account members? You can do that by adding -SizeLimit 0 to Get-QADComputer, but it will take ages to complete. It's really not recommended to do it that way, which needs to connect to each PC found, one by one. And what about those machines not reachable while you run the script?

The usual way to cope with such a task is to run a startup script per GPO. The script will report the local admin members into one shared (troublesome) or per-machine files.

Don't you think that point split is unbalanced somewhat? Raheman Mohammed Abdul's modification was a small one, and the add-on questions were all answered by me with something needing more knowledge and experience ...

Qlemo - you are right and I do apologize... I have requested the Moderators split up the points 50/50 to make it more balanced..... :)
