Intersect a line with multiple polygon shapefiles

I am trying to run the intersect tool on one line and multiple polygons. I would like the tool to output a line split at each polygon boundary with the attribute of each polygon. However, when I use more than 1 polygon the intersect tool does not output anything. Would anyone have a suggestion on either how to make this work with the intersect tool or potentially with another tool?

To add to this, I would also like to assign a polygon position number per each segment of a line. So, the first segment of the line would have a value of 1, the next segment 2, etc.. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance.
