If remote PowerShell is enabled on DC's then, you can use Invoke-Command to run commands remotely. But details like what you trying to achieve and the OS on DC's will help you to get a clear answer!
http://ss64.com/ps/invoke-command.html
Example, following code will run Ipconfig /Flushdns command on all DC's
Import-Module Activedirectory
$DCLict = Get-ADDomainController -Filter * | Select -exp name
Invoke-Command -Comp $DCLict { Ipconfig /Flushdns }

Open in new window

Does remote PowerShell enabled or can be enabled on all DC's?

Or if admin shares are enabled, then you can try..
Import-Module Activedirectory
Get-ADDomainController -Filter * | %{Remove-Item "\\$($_.Name)\c$\temp\*" -recurse}

Open in new window

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Thanks.  If I want to include a few lines of Powershell script, can I include it in invoke-command section.
