remote powershell

I'm trying to learn how to administer a remote windows 7 enterprise computer using powershell.
I have been googleing this and keep seeing that you need to run


from the computer you want to run powershell commands on. From what I've read, it sounds like you would need to go to each remote computer and run the command in an elevated powershell prompt. where I work there are about 2,000 computers, so this would be very impractical to do. would there be any way to do this without going to each individual computer?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could use a Group Policy:  Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Remote Management (WinRM) > WinRM Service

"Allow Remote Server management through WinRM" Enabled
Group Policy is your friend!
This is a good blog entry on the settings that need to be enabled for PS Remoting.

In addition, depending on the commands you'll be running on the remote machines, you might run into the second-hop problem.  There's some additional config you can use to overcome that.
