powershell script to list all servers in the forest

Windows PowerShell

I was looking for a way to get a list of all server in our AD forest.

Here?s what I have so far

Get-QADComputer -searchroot 'DC=domain,DC=com' -OSName 'Windows*Server*'| format-Table name, OSName ?auto

Even though domain.com is the root of our AD forest its not searching the entire subtree.

I?ve used many different sites to put this script together so far and I wanted to give them credit.

http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/powershell/powershell_qad_computer.htm ? This is a great site with basic powershell info.

http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/42303 ? examples of how to use the searchbase option.

I?m still searching for how to search all domains in the forest and I?ll update this post when I figure it out.
