Hi guys,
I want to query my hosts of hyper-v cluster on what type of network adapter they have.
In local host i do this powershell command

Get-NetAdapter -Physical | ft

Open in new window

How can I do a script that query a list of hosts?

Run a Remote Script
To run a script on one or many remote computers, use the FilePath parameter of the Invoke-Command cmdlet. The script must be on or accessible to your local computer. The results are returned to your local computer.

For example, the following command runs the DiskCollect.ps1 script on the Server01 and Server02 remote computers.

Invoke-Command -ComputerName Server01, Server02 -FilePath c:\Scripts\DiskCollect.ps1

Open in new window

For more information about the Invoke-Command cmdlet see:


but if I want to directly launch script that's returns me the result without the invoke command, how can I do?

In few words a script with embedded list of host.
