Test network with filecopy and Powershell

Needed a way to test and time filecopy between servers using powershell. This is what I came up with. This example will use copy to server and time the progress. I used a file of 1.8 Gb.

foreach($server in $Servers){
if (!(test-path \\$server\share\temp)) {
    new-item -path \\$server\share -name temp -ItemType Directory
$start = get-date
copy-item C:\temp\ -Destination \\$server\share\temp\
$end = get-date
Remove-Item \\$server\share\temp\
[TimeSpan]$Totaltid = new-timespan $start $end
write-host $($server) – $($Totaltid.seconds)s

Preparing for my next certification.

I have been working with Lync since the early beta versions. Now I think it is time to test my skills and go for TS 70-664 Configuring Lync server. Here in Norway nearly all our customers are medium (->600 employees) so some functions built for large enterprises are rearly used. These are the things that I will have to read extra carefully, and my lab environment  will continue to grow.
