Run .VBS file as Admin on a list of servers

I have a .vbs file located on same drive and path ex: D:\Check\Check.vbs
Normally we need to login to every server and run this file to perform a monthly server health check
This time I am trying to use a powershell script to run this file on all 20 servers with out logging in to it
Currently we login and open command prompt as admin and go to the drive and path to execute the file as admin
Any help is much appreciated with a script

I cannot run a windows scheduler cause we do not know when will the maintenance complete. Only after its completed and the server is restarted we try to run this vbs to see if any errors are there...

There are plenty of ways to do this..

1. Copy the vbs file to all of the servers in the same location..

Option1 - (Requires the Admin shares available)
for /f %f in (serverlist.txt) do psexec -h \\servername cscript //i <localpathtoscript>

Open in new window


Option2 - (Requires that your servers allow powershell scripts *and* powershell remoting
get-content .\serverlist.txt | foreach-object { invoke-command -computername $_ -scriptblock { & cscript.exe //i <path>\script.vbs }
}

Open in new window


Either of those should do exactly what you want..

On a side note.. you could set up scheduled tasks to run your vbscript and just modify your script check for a file, or a registry key, etc.  Then your script would just delete the check when it completes.. but those 2 solutions will work just fine for you :-)
