Run PowerShell Scripts Remotely

 

With Action1, you can assist your colleagues remotely and run Powershell commands on multiple remote computers without connecting to them or enabling remote PowerShell technologies. Read this article to learn how to execute PowerShell scripts on remote machines with the help of Action1 RMM tools.

To run PowerShell script on a remote computer:

  1. Navigate to the Endpoints page.
  2. Locate one or several endpoints where you want to execute a script and select More Actions / Run PowerShell.

Alternatively, select the Actions icon next to the endpoint name and specify Run PowerShell. Or click New Action on top of the page and select Run PowerShell from the drop-down list.

To create a workflow that executes a PowerShell script on remote computers according to a preset schedule, select New Policy. For more information, see Staying Compliant with Policies.
