    I have multiple servers as Server1, Server2, Server3,........ServerN (N is a finite no)

    On Each server I need to search for a specific file File234.deg in specific location as \\ServerN\E$\Folder1(No Sub folder search is needed, search is restricted up to Folder1 only)

    If file is present I need to rename (rolling backup like *.deg01/*.deg02) the file (File234.deg) based on condition whether how many rolling files are already there. I need to create next rolling file. For Ex:

    1. If no rolling files are there rename File234.deg to File234.deg01

    2. If rolling files present are File234.deg01 and File234.deg02 then I should rename file to File234.deg03. There is a finite limit to the rolling files numbers too here.

    After taking the rolling backup I need to create a fresh empty file with the same name as before File234.deg in the same location

    What does your code look like so far? is there a specific point at which you're stuck?

      Hi Richard,

      I am new to Power-Shell, so was trying something. so far I am done with the basic completion if the sample script: Please help me to optimize this further.

      ##Reading server paths from a file
      $filePaths = $var = Get-Content -Path '\\ServerMachine1\E$\RollingAudFile\Paths.txt'
      ##File pattern trying to look for
      $fileName = 'File234.deg'
      $items = @()
      ##log file
      $Logfile = "\\ServerMachine1\E$\RollingAudFile\Logs\RollingAudFile.log"

      ##Function to write application log
      Function LogWrite
      Param ([string]$logstring)
      $Level = 'INFO'
      $Stamp = (Get-Date).toString("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss:fff")

      $Line = "$Stamp $Level $logstring"

      Add-content $Logfile -value $Line
      ##Criteria for file renaming
      function Find-Date
      Param ([string]$firstLine)

      $var = $firstLine.Substring(0,22)
      $var1 = $var.Replace("'", "")
      $date = $var1.Replace(",", " ")

      LogWrite "Oldest entry is from $date"

      return $date
      ##String to Date conversion method
      function Convert-StringToDateTime
      [Parameter(Mandatory = $true)]
      [String] $DateTimeStr

      $DateTimeParts = $DateTimeStr -split ' '

      $DateParts = $DateTimeParts[0] -split '/|-|\.'

      $DateFormatParts = (Get-Culture).DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern -split '/|-|\.'
      $Month_Index = ($DateFormatParts | Select-String -Pattern 'M').LineNumber – 1
      $Day_Index = ($DateFormatParts | Select-String -Pattern 'd').LineNumber – 1
      $Year_Index = ($DateFormatParts | Select-String -Pattern 'y').LineNumber – 1

      $TimeParts = $DateTimeParts[1..$($DateTimeParts.Count – 1)]

      if (@($TimeParts).Count -eq 2)
      $TimeFormatParts = (Get-Culture).DateTimeFormat.ShortTimePattern -split ' '

      $TT_Index = ($TimeFormatParts | Select-String -Pattern 't').LineNumber – 1
      $Time_Index = 1 – $TT_Index

      $Time = $TimeParts[$Time_Index,$TT_Index] -join ' '
      $Time = $TimeParts

      $DateTime = [DateTime] $($($DateParts[$Month_Index,$Day_Index,$Year_Index] -join '/') + ' ' + $Time)

      $curDate = Get-Date
      $TimeSpan = $curDate – $DateTime
      $daysNum = $TimeSpan.TotalDays;

      return $daysNum

      $(foreach($filePath in $filePaths)
      $files = @()
      LogWrite "Checking *.deg* file at $filePath"
      $items = Get-ChildItem $filePath

      $(foreach($item in $items)
      $(if($item.Name -match $fileName)
      $files += $item
      $num = $files.Length
      LogWrite "Total no of valid *.deg* files at $filePath are $num"

      if((($files[0]).length -lt 1mb) -and (($files[0]).length -gt 0kb))
      $file = $filePath + $files[0].Name
      LogWrite "Size of $file is less than 1MB"
      $var = Get-Content -Path $file | Select-Object -First 1

      $date = Find-Date $var

      $daysNum = Convert-StringToDateTime $date

      if($daysNum -gt 14)
      LogWrite "PerfDeg file is $daysNum days old, Rolling of file is needed."
      $(if($num -lt 10)
      rename-item -path $filePath\File234.deg -newname File234.deg0$num
      rename-item -path $filePath\File234.deg -newname $fileName$num
      New-Item $filePath\File234.deg -ItemType file

      LogWrite 'Rolling file Completed'
      else {LogWrite "PerfDeg file is $daysNum days old, Rolling of file is not needed."}
      else {LogWrite "$files[0] file size is either empty file or more than 1MB so this is not a candidate."}
      $ErrorMessage = $_.Exception.Message
      $FailedItem = $_.Exception.ItemName
      LogWrite "Error at $FailedItem. The error message: $ErrorMessage"

      Moreover Add-content $Logfile -value $Line this command is throwing error as
      Add-content : The network name cannot be found.
      At line:3 char:1
      + Add-content $Logfile -value "Log Value start here"
      + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      + CategoryInfo : WriteError: (\\ServerMachine1\E$\L...LogFile.log:String) [Add-Content], IOException
      + FullyQualifiedErrorId : GetContentWriterIOError,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.AddContentCommand
      when I am trying to give network path as "$Logfile = "\\ServerMachine1\E$\RollingAudFile\Logs\RollingAudFile.log""

      But when I am passing path as "$Logfile = "E:\RollingAudFile\Logs\RollingAudFile.log"" then it is fine. Why so?
      I am running this from ServerMachine1 only
