Powershell to find if a file exist on 20 servers

Hi All,

I have about 20 Windows OS servers and I need a powershell script that read a text file that contains a list of server names, then go into each server and find out if a particular file exists, if it does, write the host name to fileexsit.txt and it the file doesn't exist, write to a file named filenotexist.txt.

Please help!!


Thanks!

Something along these lines. Note that myhostname is a fqdn list of hosts one for each row (no header)
I’m writing from memory so syntax may be imprecise.
  $filename = C:\filename
Get-content myhostnames.txt | % {

$result =    Invoke-command -computername $_  -scriptblock { if ( test-file $using:filename ) { $true} else { $false } }
If ( $result ) { $_ >> fileexists.txt} else { $_.name >> fileNOTexists.txt}
}

This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
