So you're almost right with using -notlike to get everything that is not Windows 2008, and Windows 2012; but you need to use -and rather than -or so it would look like this.

Code: Select all

foreach ($Machine in $Servers) {
$UnUseableOS += get-adcomputer -Identity $Machine -Properties * | Select-Object -property name,operatingsystem | where-object -filterscript { $PSItem.operatingsystem -notlike "Windows Server 2008*" -and $PSItem.operatingsystem -notlike "Windows Server 2012*" }

You don't need to or want to use select-object:

Code: Select all

$servers |
    ForEach-Object{get-adcomputer $_ -Properties operatingsystem} |
    Where-Object{$_.operatingsystem -notmatch 'Windows Server 2008|Windows Server 2012' }|
    Select-Object name, operatingsystem
Selecting and formatting should always be done last. Using "match" is more flexible and can coalesce logic statements for simplicity and readability.
