Windows Scheduled Tasks Service Account Report (Power Shell v2)

Wiped this one together to verify none of our scheduled tasks are using our domain administrator account prior to password change.

First step is setting up the source file.
On my servers I have the following structure: %root%\_scripts\source files

  • Create a text file in your source location, ensure it is a txt file
  • one server name per line
Copy the code below into a .ps1 file or you can download from my Google drive here
Update the fields highlighted in blue to meet your requirements. 

Hope this is helpful.

  1. OMEGA has been a world leader in advanced watch design since 1848. Over the years, cheap replica watchesthe brand has been widely celebrated for their durability and precision. replica omega watches has served as the official timekeepers of the Olympic Games for nearly a century. They also created the official watch of the space program and first watch to land on the moon. Buying an OMEGA watch is an excellent way to invest in a piece of history.
