Hello,
I wanted to ask you how can I run this command on multiple computers at once?
The best way would be to specify server list in servers.txt and then run this on multiple servers.

o      netsh advfirewall firewall set rule group="File and Printer Sharing" new enable=Yes

thank you very much!

Something like this would do the trick, with one computer name per line in the text file.  If you're not on a domain with permission, we'd need a different way though.
$textFile = "C:\Path\To\File.txt"
$computers = Get-Content $textFile

foreach ($computer in $computers)
{
    $cmd = 'netsh -r ' + $computer + ' advfirewall firewall set rule group="File and Printer Sharing" new enable=Yes'   
    Invoke-Expression $cmd 
}

Open in new window

hm. It didn't work on the remote computer. I have no problem running enter-pssession directly. Running it in elevated prompt and with the domain admin account.
Ok.
