      I need to run a small script to get some wmi info from a bunch of computers… it must run once on each single computer.

      get-wmiobject win32_computersystem | select-object Manufacturer, Model | export-csv \\fileserver\mrt$\models.csv -append

      I did the above on my w8 machine… all is well.. but w7 machines are running ps2…

      soooo.. how can I do the above script within ps2?

      Couple of options:

      1. Have each machine write it’s own .csv file, using it’s computername in the filename. Then use another script on the back end to gather them up and consolidate them into a single .csv file. This will also eliminate file contention problems from multiple machines trying to update a common .csv file at the same time.

      2. Get those W7 machines upgraded to V3.

      Personally, I’d go with "All of the above".
