Working with multiple computers in Powershell is absurdly easy using the Get-Content cmdlet to read computer names from a text file. It’s as easy as this…

$a = Get-Content "C:\Scripts\Test.txt"

foreach ($i in $a)
    {$i + "`n" + "=========================="; Get-WMIObject Win32_BIOS -computername $i}

As I’m doing more and more bash scripting I thought it would be useful to replicate this. Here’s how you do it;


for c in `cat computers.txt`
        # Do work with each computer here...
        echo "Computer = $c";
