Data usage report

New to Powershell.

 

Looking to see if there's a way to generate a report in Powershell that'll output the amount of data stored on each server's hard drives..

 

Thanks.

Let's say you have the list of Servers in C:\Servers.txt

 

ForEach ($Server in Get-Content "C:\Servers.txt") {
  ForEach ($Disk in get-WmiObject win32_logicaldisk -Computername $Server) {
    $output = @()
    $Computer = $Disk.PSComputerName
    $Drive = $Disk.DeviceID
$Size = "$($Disk.Size/1GB) GB" $FreeSpace = "$($Disk.FreeSpace/1GB) GB"
$Used = "$(($Disk.Size - $Disk.FreeSpace)/1GB) GB" $Properties = @{ Computer = $Computer Drive = $Drive
Size = $Size FreeSpace = $FreeSpace
Used = $Used } $PSobject = New-Object -TypeName psobject -Property $Properties $output += $PSobject $output | Export-Csv -Append -Path C:\ServerDevices.CSV" -NoTypeInformation } }

Hi Ortiz,

 

Thank you for your response.  I ran into some issues with syntax errors when I plugged the code into ISE so I cleaned it up a little bit, as shown below.

 

ForEach ($Server in Get-Content "C:\Servers.txt") {
  
  ForEach ($Disk in get-WmiObject win32_logicaldisk -Computername $Server) {
    $output = @()
    $Computer = $Disk.PSComputerName
    $Drive = $Disk.DeviceID
    $Size = "$($Disk.Size/1GB) GB"
    $FreeSpace = "$($Disk.FreeSpace/1GB) GB"
    $Used = "$(($Disk.Size - $Disk.FreeSpace)/1GB) GB"}

    $Properties = @{
      Computer = $Computer
      Drive = $Drive
      Size = $Size
      FreeSpace = $FreeSpace
      Used = $Used
      }
     $PSobject = New-Object -TypeName psobject -Property $Properties
     $output += $PSobject}

     $output | Export-Csv -Append -Path "C:\Users\jschmitz\Downloads\ServerDevices.CSV" -NoTypeInformation

 

 

 After running the code I ran into a problem: 

 

get-WmiObject : The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA)
At line:3 char:21
+   ForEach ($Disk in get-WmiObject win32_logicaldisk -Computername $Server) {
+                     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (:) [Get-WmiObject], COMException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : GetWMICOMException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetWmiObjectCommand

I'm only have to get one server to show up on the report, which is the second to last one on the list.  Any ideas on what could be the cause?

Thank you!

Appreciate the help, but due to time I've found another solution.  The script has been documented in my system.
