Powershell – Get Domain Controllers Scheduled Task


Real quick post for the day. This script is designed to enumerate every Domain Controller in a forest and retrieve all the scheduled task.  Note this script will not work if you run it from Windows 2008 R2 or Windows 7.  You would need to change the script to use get-wmiobject instead. 

 

$default_log = $env:userprofile + '\Documents\dc_scheduletask_report.csv'
 
Import-Module activedirectory
 
((get-adforest).domains | get-addomain).ReplicaDirectoryServers | foreach {Get-Scheduledtask -CimSession $_ | foreach{$_taskpath = $_.taskpath;$_taskname =$_.taskname; $_taskstate=$_.state;$_.actions | select `
@{name='DC';expression={$_.PSComputerName}}, `
@{name='TaskName';expression={$_taskname}}, `  
@{name='TaskPath';expression={$_taskPath}}, `
@{name='State';expression={$_taskstate}}, `
execute, arguments, workingdirectory | export-csv $default_log -append -NoTypeInformation
}}

Look for instances where the grand total does not contain the number of all the DC’s in the forest.

Go and investigate the differences.  I hope you find this useful.  Have a good day.
