Export to CSV RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    I am attempting to change the admin account password of servers remotely using powershell.  I have cobbled together the script below.  I can run the script successfully and it echos successes and failures in the console.  For auditing purposes, I would like to export the results I see in the console to a csv but when I insert a pipe and export-csv I get an 'empty pipe is not allowed' error.  I have researched this error but what I am finding hasn't really helped me resolve the issue.  Any suggestions would be appreciated. 

    $computers = Get-Content -path C:\computerlist.txt
    $changeuser = "system_admin"
    $password = "Spring2014!"

    Foreach($computer in $computers)
    echo $computer
    $user = [adsi]"WinNT://$computer/$changeuser,user"
