    Below is the script I use to get scheduled tasks running on remote servers:

    (get-content servers.txt) | foreach-object {Schtasks.exe /Query /s $_ /V /FO CSV} | ConvertFrom-CSV |Where { $_.
    TaskName -ne "TaskName"} | Export-CSV c:\test.csv

    the problem is that I received "A network path is not found" for servers that are not available on the network and "Access is denied" for the servers that the script cannot authentiate. I would like to see how the above script with the try..catch statement to capture these errors with the server name. Can someone help?

    Thanks

    Not tested, but I'd start with something like this:
    $TaskData = @()
    foreach ($Server in (get-content servers.txt)) {
    Try {
    Test-Connection $Server -Count 1 -Quiet -ErrorAction Stop
    $TaskData += {Schtasks.exe /Query /s $Server /V /FO CSV} | ConvertFrom-CSV |Where { $_.TaskName -ne "TaskName"}
    }
    Catch {
    "An error occurred connecting to $Server."
    $Error[0]
    }
    $TaskData | Export-CSV c]
