  • They probably want you to log Error and Warning in case something happens.

    In case they want you to log it in the event viewer, read the article here .


    Write-EventLog –LogName Application –Source “My Script” –EntryType Information –EventID 1
     –Message “This is a test message.”


    In case you need to write something to a file you can read different articles online by googling:" Powershell how to log to a file" or read this link.


    Function Write-Log {
        $Level = "INFO",
        $Stamp = (Get-Date).toString("yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm:ss")
        $Line = "$Stamp $Level $Message"
        If($logfile) {
            Add-Content $logfile -Value $Line
        Else {
            Write-Output $Line
