Executing PowerShell remotely for Azure AD connect from laptop without ADSync and no RDP to the server?


I need to execute the Office 365 Azure AD Synch from my computer to the server running the Azure AD Connect v1.11 (PRDADC01-VM) I have made some changes to the AD Attributes.

    [Parameter(position = 0, mandatory = $true)]
    [ValidateSet('Delta', 'Full')]
    [string]$ComputerName = 'PRDADC01-VM'
Invoke-Command -ComputerName $ComputerName -ArgumentList $type -ScriptBlock {
    If ($Type -eq 'Full') {$Type = 'Initial'}
    Import-Module adsync
    Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType $Type

Open in new window

Can someone here please assist me with the correct PowerShell to execute from my laptop which does not require me to install the ADSync ?

Because when I execute the above script from my VS Code, it is not doing anything and no confirmation of success either?

Thanks in advance.

enable powershell remoting on AD connect server
add ad sync server as trusted host on your management machine
then use invoke command to run sync commands on remote server
follow steps in below article and you should be able to...

This is the powershell to trigger the adsync (after you follow the above link)


you still need the local admin rights to trigger that.
