You can use the PowerShell remoting feature to access View PowerCLI cmdlets from a remote system.


  1. On the remote system, open the C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShells\v1.0\Profile.ps1 file in a text editor.
  2. Add the line add-pssnapin vm* to the Profile.ps1 file.
  3. Save your changes.


The View PowerCLI snapin to the PowerShell profile is added on the remote system.

What to do next

Take the same precautions for protecting the View PowerCLI operations as you would for other remoting PowerShell operations.
