  • Refresh configuration
    3 Posts | Last post July 27, 2019
    • Hi I appreciate your work. I am very much impressed but the thing is when i run this script it only run once and close. how can i keep running it at given refresh interval? how can i configure it?i will be very grateful to you if you help me out.
    • Hi,
      
      To run the script at an interval, use the -refresh [seconds] switch. For example, -refresh 500 will make the script refresh every 500 seconds.

    • What is serverfile in this script file?
      
    • Hi,
      
      It says in the documentation. The server file should be a txt file containing a list of servers - the netbios names or DNS names.

    • Hi,
      
      DMZ or Linux machines are stated as offline, i believe because security reasons? How can we bypass this?
      
      Many thanks
    • Hi,
      
      This script is only for Windows servers on a local network.

  • Disk space Display

    • Hi,
      The Script and its Output is very nice. However, in the Disk space area, if the machine has multiple drives like Drive C; Drive E: and Drive F. The Percentage symbol is not visible on the first 2 drives and only visible in the last drive.
      
      Thanks.
    • Hi,
      That's true, I removed the percentage from the first drives to save space.

  • Performance improvement

    • For a large number of servers, this could take some time especially across multiple WAN links.  I suggest looking into creating jobs so that you can hit multiple servers in batches, compile the results of those jobs, and then create the output file(s).
      
      Start-Job and Receive-Job is how I do something similar.
  • Incorporating a datastore

    • Mike - A nice script/output.  Have you considered adding the ability to store the results coming back from your script into a SQL server database table for long term/historical purposes?  Additionally it would be easier to interface a standard reporting tool like SSRS or a web application with a SQL table.  Would be a great addition if you are looking for ways to enhance the capabilities.  Cheers - Kevin
