Powershell: get free disk space from computers listed in text file. using Job


Purpose: This script will search a list of computers and report their c drives total and free space into a text file that can be imported into excel.

This is my first time using jobs to speed up the process of gathering the info so there could be a better way of doing this but this seems to work just fine.

$Global:Servers = Get-Content "C:\temp\computers.txt"
$Global:ReportPath = "C:\temp\freediskspace.txt"

$scriptblock = {
       param($server)
    $ConvertToGB = (1024 * 1024 * 1024)
       $pingResult = Test-Connection -count 1 -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue $server | select IPV4Address
       $disk = Get-WmiObject Win32_LogicalDisk -ComputerName $Server -Filter "DeviceID='C:'" | Select-Object Size,FreeSpace
       $values = @()
       if($Error){
            if( $Error -like "*Access is denied*"){
                return ($server+",,AccessDenied")
            }
            $Error.Clear()
            return ($server+",,")
       }
        
                
       $values += ($Server + "," + ($disk.Size / $ConvertToGB) + "," + ($disk.FreeSpace / $ConvertToGB) )
             
       return $values
}

function getdata{
    $jobs = Get-Job | ? { $_.State -eq "Completed" }
     foreach( $job in $jobs){
        $results = Receive-Job $job
       Add-Content $ReportPath $results
        Remove-Job $job
     }   
}


Add-Content $ReportPath "Server,Total,Free"
foreach($server in $Servers){
        
     while( (Get-Job).count -ge 50 ){
            sleep -Seconds 1
            getdata
     }

     Start-Job -ScriptBlock $scriptblock -ArgumentList $server
}

while( (get-job).count -ne 0 ){
      sleep -Seconds 1
            getdata
            
 }

Excel document for pinging list of computers VBA

Here is an excel document I created that will ping a list of nodes in column A and give results in column B. There are much better tools that can be used such as angry ip scanner  http://www.angryip.org/w/Home . I just wrote this as an example Requirements: Tested with Office 2010 Download: Download

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

Wrote this to get certificate expiration information for certificates that expired 5 days ago to ones that expire in 90 days. 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
