Can someone tell me why this is failing (and how to fix it)??

Get-ADComputer -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=Test, OU=Hanger,OU=Planes Computers,DC=notmydomain,DC=com" |restart-computer $_.name


I have confirmed the first part works.  As a minor side question, how could I get the first part to output only the name with no title like "BOB" and not "Name: BOB"


Thanks for your help!!!

Try..
Restart-Computer -ComputerName (Get-ADComputer -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=Test, OU=Hanger,OU=Planes Computers,DC=notmydomain,DC=com" | Select -exp Name)

Open in new window

Or..
Get-ADComputer -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=Test, OU=Hanger,OU=Planes Computers,DC=notmydomain,DC=com" | %{Restart-Computer -ComputerName $_.Name}

Open in new window

Well, I tested this with replacing the restart with write-host, and it seemed to work.  I will set up my OU again, and test the restart :)

You can just expand the name property to get only names..
Get-ADComputer -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=Test, OU=Hanger,OU=Planes Computers,DC=notmydomain,DC=com" | Select -ExpandProperty Name

Open in new window

Or use foreach to print just value..
Get-ADComputer -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=Test, OU=Hanger,OU=Planes Computers,DC=notmydomain,DC=com" | ForEach-Object {$_.Name}

Open in new window


Here $_.Name represent the value of the property Name.
