Export Active Directory Computers to CSV

Quick power shell to run on a Domain Controller to export all Computers with last logged in time to a CSV file located in C:\Temp\ExportADComputers
Some code was based on a Technet example but improved for my use to get Extended details out.

Example of CSV output

name whenCreated IPv4Address OperatingSystem OperatingSystemVersion LastLogonDate Enabled
Computer-001 09/01/2017 18:05 10.x.x.x Windows 10 Pro 10.0 (14393) 09/01/2017 18:08 TRUE

# Created Folder automatically
New-Item -ItemType directory -Path C:\Temp\ExportADComputers

#Define location of my script variable
#the -parent switch returns one directory lower from directory defined. 
#below will return up to ImportADUsers folder 
#and since my files are located here it will find it.
#It failes withpout appending "*.*" at the end

$path = Split-Path -parent "c:\temp\ExportADComputers\*.*"

#Create a variable for the date stamp in the log file

$LogDate = get-date -f yyyyMMddhhmm

#Define CSV and log file location variables
#they have to be on the same location as the script

$csvfile = $path + "\ALLADComputers_$logDate.csv"

#import the ActiveDirectory Module

Import-Module ActiveDirectory


#Sets the OU to do the base search for all Computer accounts, change as required.

$OUpaths = GET-ADDomain | Select-Object -ExpandProperty ComputersContainer

#Get Admin accountb credential

$GetAdminact = Get-Credential

# loop though the array of OUs, adding the computers to a list ('Object' really)
foreach ($iOUpath in $OUpaths)
    {
        ($objComputers += Get-ADComputer -SearchBase $iOUpath -Properties * -Filter *)    #You might need to refine the query witha 'Filter' depending on your AD structure
    }
