Hello experts,

i'm trying to get values out of the response of Get-ADDomainController but i dont succeed inside a foreach.

what am I doing wrong, i only receive three times the domain but no ip nor name.

here's what i wrote so far.

foreach($server in (Get-ADForest).globalcatalogs){
    foreach-object { 'server : {0, 20}  ---  IP : {0, 20}  ---  Name: {0, 20}' -f
     $(Get-ADDomainController -Server $server).Domain ,
     $(Get-ADDomainController -Server $server).IPv4Address,
     $(Get-ADDomainController -Server $server).Name
    }
}

thank you in advance.

toshi.

Try this - only executes get-addomaincontroller once, instead of thrice:
foreach($server in (Get-ADForest).globalcatalogs){
  get-addomaincontroller -server $server | select domain, ipv4address, name
}

Open in new window

i'd like to have the responses more close one to each other.

This should accomplish that adjustment...

foreach($server in (Get-ADForest).globalcatalogs){
  get-addomaincontroller -server $server | format-table domain, ipv4address, name -autosize
}

Open in new window

thank again, but autosize is not creating columns with the results...
can you help me with formating the result ?

how to get the result and play with {0,20} ?

Oh, I see...
So, try this instead of your original script:
foreach($server in (Get-ADForest).globalcatalogs){
  $dc = get-addomaincontroller -server $server 
  'server : {0, 20}  ---  IP : {0, 20}  ---  Name: {0, 20}' -f $dc.domain, $dc.ipv4address, $dc.name
}

Open in new window

Oh, ah...I overlooked that... increment the elements:
 'server : {0, 20}  ---  IP : {1, 20}  ---  Name: {2, 20}' -f $dc.domain, $dc.ipv4address, $dc.name
