Powershell - Com+ Application Recycle

Needed a script to recycle a com+ application nightly and this is what i came up with. This script will write each recycle it does to the event log under application. Run locally or via a scheduled task. #Recycle COM+ Application and write to the event log the status # 1.0 Release # Run script locally # Write to the event log ######################################## #Configurable ######################################## #Com+ ApplicationName $ComPlusLikeAppName = "Put the name of Com+ Application here a like statement is used to eval so you can get away with putting part of it" #EventLog to write to. $eventlog = "Application" #Source for eventlog. $source = "RecycleComObject" #Successful Event ID $SEventID = 0 #Error Event ID $EEventID = 666 #Process that COM+ runs under $process = "dllhost.exe". ######################################## #Clear $CurrentMemory = $null $PRocessID = $null $Commandline = $null $GUID = $null $AppID = $null $Messag

Powershell : Certutil Find Expired Certs on CA server

Wrap an invoke-command around this for remote query. $Before = (get-date).adddays(90).ToString("MM/dd/yyyy") $After = (get-date).AddDays(-5).ToString("MM/dd/yyyy") <# https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/poshchap/2016/01/01/powershell-and-certutil-exe/ We create a date range with $Before, i.e. certificates expiring before this date, and $After, i.e. certificates expiring after this date. These values are converted into something that certutil can understand - $Restrict. This is then used with the certutil -restrict parameter. #> $Restrict = "NotAfter<=$Before,NotAfter>=$After" $Report = @() $cmd = & certutil.exe -view -restrict $Restrict -out "RequesterName,CommonName,Certificate Expiration Date","Certificate Template" $SplitLines = $cmd.Split("`n`r") $Index = 0 foreach ($line in $Sp
