    Hi all,
    as part of my learning experience with powershell i thought i would give a little bit back.
    Here is my first forms based powershell script.
    It allows you to view a list of remote desktop sessions from a list of servers and kill the session if required.
    The script has been hacked around from some existing code out there and is essentially a rewrite of an old kix script of mine.
    You will need psterminalservices module installed and text file called servers.txt in the same location as the script with a machine hostname on each line.
    Hope this helps someone and am sure it could be quite easily developed and enhanced with functionality and looks. Hope its ok to post here if not feel free to remove

    # Depends on PSTerminalServices module
    # Ini file is servers.txt which is parsed to provide a list of servers to manage.
    # Keep servers.txt in the same location as main script.
    # Place a server hostname on a new line in the file with a carriage return at the end.
    # Further comments explain functionality of script
