Powershell Remote With Remote Module

I have a server that I ran Enable-PSRemoting on successfully.  

I am able to run Enter-PSSession <computername> from my local workstation and successfully connect.

I need to somehow import a module from the remote server into the session I am using and be able to use cmdlets from that module.  I don't want to have to import the module locally.

Is that even possible?

Try this..
$Session = New-PSSession "ServerName"
Invoke-Command -Session $Session {Import-Module RemoteDesktopServices}
Invoke-Command -Session $Session {Get-PSDrive}

Open in new window

You can also combine the complete script into a single block, which is usually more straight-forward (I'm using the same lines as Subsun as an example):
$Session = New-PSSession "ServerName"
Invoke-Command -Session $Session {
  Import-Module RemoteDesktopServices
  Get-PSDrive
}

Open in new window
