I'd like to keep all my variables in a GlobalVariables.ps1 which I load in my profile.
All my scripts would then just use $SCCMServer or $SMTPServer instead of full name.

However, this limits the exchange of my scripts, since the scripts won't have the GlobalVariables.ps1.
I could copy GlobalVariables.ps1 to each script I exchange and refer in it via $psscriptroot\globalvariables.ps1 but then I'd need to refer in each of my scripts to this $psscriptroot whereas it is already in my globalvariables.ps1 which is loaded in my profile.
How to address this?

Please advise.
