PS 2 - get wmiobject - multiple computers -append csv

by Symbiot at 2013-03-01 04:34:50


I need to run a small script to get some wmi info from a bunch of computers… it must run once on each single computer.

get-wmiobject win32_computersystem | select-object Manufacturer, Model | export-csv \fileserver\mrt$\models.csv -append

I did the above on my w8 machine… all is well… but w7 machines are running ps2…

soooo… how can I do the above script within ps2?

Couple of options:

1. Have each machine write it’s own .csv file, using it’s computername in the filename. Then use another script on the back end to gather them up and consolidate them into a single .csv file. This will also eliminate file contention problems from multiple machines trying to update a common .csv file at the same time.

2. Get those W7 machines upgraded to V3.

Personally, I’d go with “All of the above”.
