      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 {
           }
      }
