Remote Access Without Admin Privileges

by Jan 28, 2010

In PowerShell v.2, remote access is available only to users who hold local administrator privileges. So, even if you do have appropriate remote access to a machine, you cannot remotely access the system if you are not an Admin. This is not a technical limitation, though, just a safe default. You should use this line to change it:

Set-PSSessionConfiguration -Name Microsoft.PowerShell -showSecurityDescriptorUI
