      i need to get the ip addresses of a uut, i do this command

      $IPconfig = invoke-command -scriptblock {ipconfig /all} -computername $global:uutName -credential $global:Credential
      $IPconfig[18] is
      IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.xxx.x.xxa(Preferred)
      $IPconfig[38] is
      IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.xxx.x.xxb(Preferred)

      how do i get the ip addresses that are between ": " and "(Preferred)"
      i was going to hard code it but the ip length can change

      First off, start using .NET objects with PowerShell instead of string manipulation! 🙂 You can get the IP addresses using the Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration WMI class, (lots of other information, too):
      PS > Get-WMIObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -ComputerName . -Filter {IPEnabled = "True"} | Select-Object Description, IPAddress

      Description IPAddress
      ----------- ---------
      Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet {10.x.x.29}
      VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter for VMnet1 {192.168.111.1, fe80::b40a:99a6:a50d:c1c}
      VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter for VMnet8 {192.168.227.1, fe80]
      Or, if you're using v3, use the Get-NetworkConnectionInfo cmdlet:
      PS > Get-NetworkConnectionInfo

      Name : Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet
      DnsServers : {10.x.x.254, 10.x.x.157, 10.x.x.127}
      IPAddresses : {10.x.x.29}
      AdapterGuid : c4dd10fe-0bf2-48cb-a7b3-792cd2dbcc6e
      MacAddress : E8:39:35:33:EC:30
      Identity : c4dd10fe-0bf2-48cb-a7b3-792cd2dbcc6e
      IsValid : True
      ObjectState : Unchanged

      Name : VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter for VMnet1
      DnsServers : {}
      IPAddresses : {192.168.111.1, fe80::b40a:99a6:a50d:c1c}
      AdapterGuid : ee1d0dbd-7450-4a75-8ab1-9841064303d7
      MacAddress : 00:50:56:C0:00:01
      Identity : ee1d0dbd-7450-4a75-8ab1-9841064303d7
      IsValid : True
      ObjectState : Unchanged

      Name : VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter for VMnet8
      DnsServers : {}
      IPAddresses : {192.168.227.1, fe80::5c71:f473:4ff1:83c5}
      AdapterGuid : 1a77e468-d612-4e49-9ccf-489e82a1a54c
      MacAddress : 00:50:56:C0:00:08
      Identity : 1a77e468-d612-4e49-9ccf-489e82a1a54c
      IsValid : True
      ObjectState : Unchanged

      But if you just really want to use ipconfig, you'll have to do some fancy string manipulation and get to know regex...

      thanks that makes sense but i still need to extract the ip address because i’m getting the info from a remote server
      when i run your command remotely

      $IPconfig = invoke-command -scriptblock {Get-WMIObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -Filter {IPEnabled = "True"} | Select-Object IPAddress } `
      -computername $global:uutName -credential $global:Credential

      i get this result

      IPAddress PSComputerName RunspaceId
      ——— ————– ———-
      {192.168.x.xxx, fe80::5c64:4246:xxx:xxx} stg-xx 4dxxx2-f9xx-xxx-98df-1c4c33xxxx
      {192.168.x.xxx, fe80::b88c:87a:xxx:xxx} stg-xx 4dfxxx2-f9xx-xxx-98df-1c4cxxx

      $IPconfig.IPAddress will give you the entire array of IP addresses from each computer, ({192.168.x.xxx, fe80::5c64:4246:xxx:xxx}).

      You can address each address using the array index: $IPconfig.IPAddress[0] would get you "192.168.x.xxx" and $IPconfig.IPAddress[1] would get you "fe80::5c64:4246:xxx:xxx"
