    When I run the cmdlet Get-CMDistributionPointInfo | select ServerName to get a list of SCCM distribution points (DPs) by itself, I will get the following results example:

    server1.corp.com

    server2.corp.com

    server3.corp.com

    etc.

    When I run the for loop below, I can do a write-host and it will list the DPs, but it does so several times for each DP result, so obviously the code is not correct.  Also, if I do a write-host in that for loop, it will show the server name, but if I do a message box, it will not show one server after the next.

    Ultimately, what I am trying to do is after it gets each DP server, to then create a directory on a specific drive on that server.  That part I can handle, but I am having issues with the for loop just displaying the server in a message box and then the next one and then so on.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

     

    $GET_DP = Get-CMDistributionPointInfo | select ServerName
    
    foreach($GET_DPS in $GET_DP)
    {
         if($GET_DPS -ne $GET_DP)
         {
              Write-Output ($GET_DP)
    [System.Windows.MessageBox]::Show($GET_DP)
                 } Else {
         }
    }
