Powershell - Compare two variables

Hi,

I have to two variables. The first one contains computernames (ex. COMP01, COMP02, COMP03) and the second one also contains computernames, but with some extra fillings (ex. INFO_COMP01.txt, INFO_COMP02.txt, INFO_COMP03.txt).

Is it possible to compare these two variables and find those missing in one of the variables?

I'll use this for cleaning up, when a computer is deleted manually in AD.

Certainly.
Used this for testing:
$ComputerList = 'COMP01', 'COMP02', 'COMP03'
$FileList = 'INFO_COMP01.txt', 'INFO_COMP03.txt', 'INFO_COMP04.txt'

Open in new window

And this provides the results:
Compare-Object -ReferenceObject $ComputerList -DifferenceObject ($FileList | % {$_.Split('_.')[1]})

Open in new window
