Sheet1 Page 1 TOPIC about_PSSessions SHORT DESCRIPTION Describes Windows PowerShell sessions (PSSessions) and explains how to establish a persistent connection to a remote computer. LONG DESCRIPTION To run Windows PowerShell commands on a remote computer, you can use the ComputerName parameter of a cmdlet, or you can create a Windows PowerShell session (PSSession) and run commands in the PSSession. When you create a PSSession, Windows PowerShell establishes a persistent connection to the remote computer. Use a PSSession to run a series of related commands on a remote computer. Commands that run in the same PSSession can share data, such as the values of variables, aliases, and functions. You can also create a PSSession on the local computer and run commands in it. A local PSSession uses the Windows PowerShell remoting infrastructure to create and maintain the PSSession. This topic explains how to create, use, get, and delete PSSessions.
