Changing name of Powershell variables

campbell1972 asked
Last Modified: 2017-03-15
I'm looking for the simplest way in Powershell to uniquely identify a variable that will be subject to numerous loop iterations.

The question is a simple one I hope: How do you (if you even can!) modify the name of a variable once it has been set?

For example, if my variable name is $Test, how could I append a server name to the variable name (i.e. $TestServer)

Any and all help appreciated!
