I've decided to go ahead and make my server status PowerShell script available to the general public, so I'm releasing it here. Currently the script is at version 0.2.1, and is pretty stable (I haven't had any issues with it). Hopefully you'll find it useful as well.
If you examine the script, you'll see several comments that start with 3 hash marks (###), these indicate lines of the script that should be changed to meet your needs, and/or the needs of your environment. I've tried to comment the script enough for you to be able to understand what's going on, and what can be changed.
So without further ado: PowerShell Server Status Script. NOTE: You'll need to change the extension from .doc to .ps1 (it was the only way I cold get it to upload)
