Enabling WinRM Windows Remote Management in one step

Enabling WinRM Windows Remote Management in one step

 25.02.2012 -  ~1 Minute Misc

My earlier script to enable WinRM in one step has been cleaned up and is now on GitHub.

Recently, I posted an article that described, step-by-step, how to use PowerShell to automate enabling Windows Remote Management (“WinRM”). That script was great, but it was a bit “monolithic”, and hosting it as a static file served by my website isn’t the best way to show off code. So I’ve taken this script, split it up into logical parts, converted it to a PowerShell module, and uploaded it to GitHub.

You can find it here: https://github.com/rdowner/winrm-tools

At the moment, parts of the project are licensed under the Microsoft Limited Public License (the hazards of using example code from MSDN…) but I’m hoping to be able to remove these parts, and have the full project under the Apache License 2.0.

Enjoy!
