Kill a process on remote machine using PowerShell Remoting

by Sitaram Pamarthi on January 22, 2010

In this post I will explain you how to kill a sample process on remote machine using PowerShell remoting(read my previous articles in poweshell category if you want to know more about powershell remoting). I am going to kill the process, wordpad.exe on remote machine CompB using below steps.

Establish a remote session:

$remote = New-PSSession -ComputerName CompB

Bring remote commands to local session(what the heck is this?.. see powershell blog)

Import-PSSession -Session $remote -CommandName *-Process -Prefix Remote

Verify if that process exists on remote machine

Get-RemoteProcess -Name wordpad.exe

If exists, kill it..

Get-RemoteProcess -Name wordpad.exe | stop-RemoteProcess

Hmm..Check that process is terminated on remote machine.

Happy Learning..,
