Experts,

       I need to create a Powershell script that will go out and SSH from the PDC. The SSH needs to reach WIndows machines, thin clients, VSM, RHEL5. Once the connection is made I need a local script run. I wrote a psuedocode of what I'm looking for..
I have putty on Windows server. So I can take advantage of plink etc.
Thanks, Missymadi
# If servers are Windows

If $Computer = “Windows” do the following

$ArrComputers = "Computer1", "Computer2", "Computer3" 
foreach ($Computer in $ArrComputers) 
{ write-host "
" write-host "====================================" 
write-host 
"Computer: $Computer" 
write-host "====================================" write-host "-----------------------------------"
 write-host "Win32_PnPEntity instance"
 write-host "-----------------------------------" 

Run a Windows Powershell script
Exit
} 

#If servers are RHEL5 Servers

If $Computer = “RHEL5” do the following

plink root@Linuxbox -m local_script.sh

#if servers are VM host 

Connect-viserver –server <server> -user <user> -password<pwd>
(use the Connect-VIServer cmdlet and provide a value to the server parameter

I have not verified this but...

using the ssh-keygen app from putty you can also enable the servers for passwordless login...

I want to try this in our lab. Do I need the latest copy of Powershell for this to work?

Do you have an example of a Powershell script that would connect from a Win2k3 to a Linux machine and run a script?

I'm also looking for guidance for creating a Powershell script like I discribed above. I need one script and based on the computer name, and if it is pingable then connect to the remote computer and run a local script.
Thanks, Missymadi
