inventory of sql server info

    I am trying to use this powershell script to pull SQL Server information and place it in a table. It works great if I pass the server names in a comma delimited list. But I need it to work by pulling the list from the CMS(Central Management Server). The output from that query is a list of servers (1 per line). It works for other scripts but not this one.

    Here is the whole script but it is the last few lines I am having a problem with.

    # Assume you have SQLServer PowerShell module installed
    # on the server where you execute this script

    Import-Module sqlserver -DisableNameChecking;

    function Get-SQLDBInventory
    Param( [Parameter(Mandatory=$false, ValueFromPipeline=$true)]
    [string[]]$ServerInstance = $env:computername

    [string]$qry = @"
    set nocount on;
    if object_id('tempdb..#t', 'U') is not null
    drop table #t;

    Wouldn't you want to use a ForEach loop to process these? You're trying to pass the array to get-sqldbinventory but $ServerInstance is defined as a string, not an array.

    I don't have the modules installed, but I would expect something more like:

    foreach ($Server in $AllServers){
    Get-SqlDbInventory -ServerInstance $Server.Name #don't know what the actual name of the property is

    Excuse my typos and sometimes awful grammar. My fingers work faster than my brain does.
