Quick Guide to Configuring PowerShell Remoting

To perform actions on remote computers using PowerShell, you’ll need to setup PowerShell Remoting.

To do this…

1. In a PowerShell CMD window that is running under the administrator context, run the following command:

Enable-PSRemoting –force

2. Configure WinRM to run automatically:

Set-Service WinRM -StartMode Automatic

3. Verify the start mode was set correctly and that it is currently running:

Get-WmiObject -Class win32_service | Where-Object {$_.name -like “WinRM”}

4. Configure so that all remote hosts are trusted:

Set-Item WSMan:localhost\client\trustedhosts -value *

5. Verify that the remote trusted hosts has taken effect:

Get-Item WSMan:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts
