Hi Powershell experts,

I am trying to write to an output file from a PS Session to retrieve OU ACLs and for some reason it is not working/saving to a file. Could someone please shed some light? Btw, our environment is a multi-domain that's why I did the PS Session... Thank you!

Enter-PSSession dc1 -Credential mydomain\administrator

Import-Module activedirectory

set-location ad:
(Get-Acl ‘ou=mydomain,dc=com’).access | ft identityreference, accesscontroltype -AutoSize | Out-file -filepath c:\temp\results.txt

Get-Acl -Path "AD:\OU=yourOU,DC=yourdc,DC=local" |
  Select-Object -ExpandProperty Access |ft IdentityReference,AccessControlType |out-file 'c:\temp\results.csv'


You can then open it in notepad or excel , the choice is yours

The original command as shown should work fine.  If you take off the pipe to Out-File, does it show on screen?  Just keep in mind that it will save to c:\temp\results.txt on the remote machine where you have the remote session.
