Short answer yes:

Here are steps on installing powershell on the 2012 server:

Once done you need to run Enable psremoting -force on the target server to ensure winrm is correctly set up and configured for remoting.

Not sure how he can connect via psremoting without powershell installed  ?



There is no specific version REQUIRED but Powershell needs to be installed if powershell is going to connect to PowerShell.

Since it is a 2012 server and there is a .net requirement I can see no harm in putting PS3 on 2012.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I have added a server 2008 r2 vm to a 2012 domain.

TEST-02 = Server 2008 R2
DC-01 = Server 2012

i can open powershell v2 on test-02 and execute New-PSSession DC-01 without installing any other software and it seems to work?

This means your server 2012 was configured with PowerShell out of the box

Also .net 4x is bundled with the server OS


However both scenarios might not have been the case based on the the server was built, do if it's all prepackaged then no action needed.  If not then those are the steps.

by default 2012 is enabled with PSremoting..............

and if you are using v2 to connection New-PSsession. you only have v2 version command.
