    Hopefully this will be easy to explain.

    I have a list if 600 servers, and folder full of escalation documentation. What I'm looking for is the easiest way to feed spotlight that list and return a list of documents that contain at least one of those servers.

    We're moving a datacenter and I want to start figuring out what docs need to be updated.

    This is doable from the command line. I'm not entirely sure how to do this from Automator. It should be doable with AppleScript as well but I am not sure of the syntax. I suppose you could always open Finder's dictionary from Script Editor, and learn it.
