Remote PowerShell Administration
Remote server administration empowers SysKit users with complete control over remote servers.
Remote server administration
Use PowerShell administration scripts to manage servers remotely from a single console. Scripts can be written by you or imported from us, and then executed simultaneously on selected remote servers. This is great if you patch your servers manually rather than automatically. You can copy all the update binaries on all the servers, execute the update process, and receive a report if the update process was successful.
PowerShell execution output logSysKit provides you with reports on all executed PowerShell scripts. This enables you to audit your PowerShell execution logs and spot if certain scripts didn’t execute correctly and why. All PowerShell reports can be exported to Excel or PDF for when you need to document all virtual machines and their VMM checkpoints, for example.
Automate and schedule PowerShell executionFor each PowerShell command you intend to execute on servers, you can define on which servers to run it on, at what time, and the time between two runs. This way you can set up scripts to continuously run on specific servers at selected intervals to, for example, check if your SharePoint servers are responsive, and control web app or site collection.
Configure PowerShell alertsSysKit can be configured to send alerts if the specific output—such as status code, URL, or some other data—is returned after PowerShell execution. For example, you can create a script that pings SharePoint site latency and availability every fifteen minutes, and SysKit will alert you if one of those values indicates SharePoint site problems.
