      Hello,

      Could anyone please let me know how to implement a PowerShell script which takes input from a text file consisting of servers and reboot all of them simultaneously?

      After reboot is completed, I need to output a file to determine whether the reboot has been successfully completed for each and every server.

      Environment: Windows 2008, Windows 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016 and 2019.

      Thanks.

      Hopefully, you have done some research on the various parts you need to assemble to do this, and aren’t simply asking someone to write a complete script for you.

      create the file

      get-content from it

      foreach server in serverlist

      create pssession to restart locally or

      restart-computer -computer to do it remotely.

      | tee output

      There are lots of examples out there. Try them.

        Restart-Computer -Wait is what you need. As Jim said its a very simple script that you can find on multiple places.

      Hi Mark,

      did you succeed in your script?
