I've been working the below code and can't seem to get the Sites to populate into the csv...any help would really be appreciated.

#Import Module
Import-Module ActiveDirectory

#Set Variables
$Domain = (Get-ADDomain).distinguishedname
$OU = "CN=Computers,$Domain"
$Logfile = "C:\Logs\ComputerSiteAssignments.csv"

# Retrieve Site
$GetSite = Get-ADComputer -Filter * -SearchBase $OU -Property * | foreach {
    nltest /server:$_.Name /dsgetsite
    }

#Get Computer information and format
$Computer = @{}
$Computer = Get-ADComputer -Filter * -SearchBase $OU -Property Name,OperatingSystem,Description,IPv4Address | foreach {
    $HostName = $_.Name
    $OS = $_.OperatingSystem
    $Description = $_.Description
    $IP = $_.IPv4Address
    $Sites = $GetSite
    
   [PSCustomObject]@{
    OU = $OU
    Name = $HostName
    OS = $OS
    Description = $Description
    IP = $IP
    Site = $Sites
    }
}
# Export Logfile to CSV for review
$Computer | Export-Csv $logfile -NoTypeInformation

this may not be the only issue, but try using this command instead

nltest /server:$($_.Name) /dsgetsite

First, I would recommend making your nltest command a function because it's not a native Powershell command the results might not look like you expect and probably need to be parsed. Luckily, for you, someone had already created a function (link in the function). Also, rather than looping through the computers and manually generating an object, try using calculated properties to get the site information. This is not pseudo-code, not tested, but should be pretty close to what you are looking for:

function Get-ComputerSite($ComputerName){
   #http://www.powershellmagazine.com/2013/04/23/pstip-get-the-ad-site-name-of-a-computer/

   $site = nltest /server:$ComputerName /dsgetsite 2>$null
   if($LASTEXITCODE -eq 0){ $site[0] }
}


#Import Module
Import-Module ActiveDirectory

#Set Variables
$Domain = (Get-ADDomain).distinguishedname
$OU = "CN=Computers,$Domain"
$Logfile = "C:\Logs\ComputerSiteAssignments.csv"

$Computer = Get-ADComputer -Filter * -SearchBase $OU -Property Name,OperatingSystem,Description,IPv4Address | 
Select Name, 
       OperatingSystem, 
       Description, 
       IPv4Address, 
       @{Name="ADSite";Expression={Get-ComputerSite -ComputerName $_.Name}}

$Computer | Export-Csv $logfile -NoTypeInformation

It's also in here.
