I found this: $Session = new-PSSession -ComputerName $servername -Credential $cred Copy-Item -Path $FilePath -Destination -Path $FilePath -ToSession $session I am not sure what is suppose to be included in the parameter -Crendenital. What is $cred suppose to hold? Thanks! January 12, 2017 at 5:47 pm #61818 Olaf SoykParticipant Get-Help New-PSSession -Full Most of the Powershell cmdlets are well documented. You should first read the complete help for a cmdlet you're about to use. .... including the examples!

You'll only need it when copying to a server on which your current account doesn't have permissions Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
