Remoting between PowerShell v3 CTP 2 and PowerShell v2

Posted by: | January 24, 2012 | 1 Comment |

One of the questions on tonight’s Live Meeting concerned the compatibility between remoting on PowerShell v2 and PowerShell v3 CTP 2

The difference is that v3 uses a WSMAN 3.0 stack but v2 uses 2.0

I used two machines:

  • Windows 2008 R2 SP 1 with PowerShell v2
  • Windows 7 SP1 with PowerShell v3 CTP 2


on each machine I ensured remoting was enabled then ran

$s = New-PSSession –ComputerName <other computer name>
Invoke-Command -Session $s -ScriptBlock {get-service}


it worked in both cases

Looks like in this case you can remote both ways
