Scenario: run my powerhell script on all virtual machines connected to VLAN 10.X.X.15, in Vcenter?
The script I want to run is the following:
(Get-Content C:/sample.txt -TotalCount 1) | Set-Content C:/sample.txt

What would be my best option?

Best Regards

many many possible solutions

you need to make up a list of the machines you wish to query. Using this list you can use Powershell Remoting or as an administrator connect to the c$ administrative share..

one possible solution

$computers = get-adcomputer -Filter *
foreach($computer in $computers){
write-output $computer.Name


    if((Test-Connection $computer.name -Count 1 -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue)){
        $pathtotest = "\\" + $computer.name + "\c$\sample.txt"
        if ((Test-Path $pathtotest) -eq $true){
        get-content $pathtotest -TotalCount 1 | set-content $pathtotest
            }
            else {
            write-output ($pathtotest + ' :Not found')
            }
        }
}
