Everyday Powershell - Part 23 - Check for old servers

Another simple AD cleanup script. But it's the simple things in life that count right?

You can run this script and it'll find any servers in your domain. It pings them and if they reply it sets .there to true otherwise it'll be null.
$servers = Get-ADComputer -filter {OperatingSystem -like "*Server*"}
$report = @()
foreach ($server in $servers)
    $temp = "" | select Name, There
    $ = $server.DNSHostName
    $temp.there = if(Test-Connection $server.DNSHostName -Count 1){$true}
    $report += $temp

Quick and dirty powershell to do something useful in a hurry. That's what we're all about here!
