Sheet1 Page 1 TOPIC about_Remote_Output SHORT DESCRIPTION Describes how to interpret and format the output of remote commands. LONG DESCRIPTION The output of a command that was run on a remote computer might look like output of the same command run on a local computer, but there are some significant differences. This topic explains how to interpret, format, and display the output of commands that are run on remote computers. DISPLAYING THE COMPUTER NAME When you use the Invoke-Command cmdlet to run a command on a remote computer, the command returns an object that includes the name of the computer that generated the data. The remote computer name is stored in the PSComputerName property. For many commands, the PSComputerName is displayed by default. For example, the following command runs a Get-Culture command on two remote computers, Server01 and Server02. The output, which appears below, includes the names of the remote computers on which the command ran. C:\PS> invoke-command -script {get-culture} -comp Server01, Server02 LCID Name DisplayName PSComputerName ---- ---- ----------- -------------- 1033 en-US English (United States) Server01 1033 es-AR Spanish (Argentina) Server02 You can use the HideComputerName parameter of Invoke-Command to hide the PSComputerName property. This parameter is designed for commands that collect data from only one remote computer. The following command runs a Get-Culture command on the Server01 remote computer. It uses the HideComputerName parameter to hide the PSComputerName property and related properties. C:\PS> invoke-command -scr {get-culture} -comp Server01 -HideComputerName LCID Name DisplayName ---- ---- ----------- 1033 en-US English (United States)
