Passing variable to remote machine (Invoke-Command)

Filed under: Tips — donrsh @ 11:38 am

In PowerShell 3.0 we can simply use the Using scope modifier followed by a colon and the name of the local variable we want to reference:

$a = "PowerShell"
$b = "Rocks"
Invoke-Command -ComputerName Server01 -ScriptBlock {
   Write-Output "The value of `$a is: $using:a"
   Write-Output "The value of `$b is: $using:b"
The value of $a is: PowerShell
The value of $b is: Rocks
