I've been getting a lot of questions about some of PowerShell Remoting's trickier configuration scenarios - so many that I decided to sit down and figure it all out, documenting every step of the way. With some help from a CloudShare 6-machine virtual environment, consisting of two forests and a standalone machine, I've gotten off to an awesome start.
The result is the first draft of Secrets of PowerShell Remoting - which you can download right now from PowerShellBooks.com (please, tell a friend). The guide is based on PowerShell v3, although it's about 90% compatible with v2 - and the v3-specific stuff is pretty clearly called out.
But wait, there's more. This is just the first draft. Fellow MVP Dr. Tobias Weltner has agreed to help beef up some of the core Remoting coverage (which is why it'll seem a bit thin in the current draft - Tobias is teaching a class and hasn't gotten a chance to dive in yet). A couple of my other fellow MVPs - Alexandair Nikolic and Bartek Bielawski - have agreed to do a tech-edit pass for me. And I'm truly hoping you will have some useful feedback on what else this guide should cover.
So download, give it a read (it's almost 80 pages!!!) and let me know what you think. And please tell a friend. I'm hoping this can get enough Google- and Bing-love that it becomes super E-Z for people to find, so that they don't have to bang their head against a wall trying to get some of these trickier configuration bits worked out.
