How to: Connect Remotely to an Exchange Management Shell

Powershell is a great tool and sometimes you need to connect to your prefered Exchange server without opening a remote desktop on the server. To connect remotely to any Exchange Management Shell you need the following:

To connect to the server using the logged-in user type,

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri http://my-exchange-server/PowerShell/ -Authentication Kerberos

and then type

Import-PSSession $Session

If you want to connect to the server using specified credentials, type the following,

$UserCredential = Get-Credential

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri http://my-exchange-server/PowerShell/ -Authentication Kerberos -Credential $UserCredential

Import-PSSession $Session

That should connect you to the desired server… enjoy
