    Hi All,

    I need to install a software on multiple computers. The setup file is residing on one of the jump box. Below is the switch to install the software locally, I tried this below command locally on server and it works:

    \\\SCCMSources\Applications\CrowdStrike\CrowdStrike_3.1.5226.0\WindowsSensor.exe /install /quiet /norestart CID=000000000000000000000-00

    I want to use this command in invoke-command. I tried below command on localhost and on remote computer. It does not give any error message but does not do anything also.

    Invoke-Command -ScriptBlock {c:\temp\CrowdStrike_3.1.5226.0\WindowsSensor.exe /install /quiet /norestart CID=000000000000000000000-00} -ComputerName localhost

    It just do nothing, once I press enter, it goes to c:\>. Please help me running this command or let me know if you need any information my side.

    In some cases, when running commends on servers, I've to build up the command line, like this:

    $robocopyOptions = @('/E','/ZB','/J','/EFSRAW','/COPYALL','/XO','/R:3','/W:60','/NP','/xf','log*')
    $robocopyOptions += "/LOG:$($log)"
    $robocopyOptions += "/xf LOG* "
    $CmdLine = @($source, $destination) + $robocopyOptions
    & 'robocopy.exe' $CmdLine

    In some cases when running commands on remote servers I use a PSSession, like this:

    $pss = New-PSSession $Server -Credential (Import-Clixml "$codedeploy") 
    Invoke-Command -Session $pss -scriptblock {
