Hi all

Can anyone help me how to map a drive using powershell remotely.

I tried the below script

$computername = (Read-Host "Enter Remote computer to map a drive to")

Invoke-Command =scriptslock{
	$drivename = (Read-Host "Enter Drive Letter e.g. X:")
	$psprovider = (Read-Host "Enter psprovider e.g.filesystem")
	$server= (Read-Host "Name of the share you like to map")
	New-PSDrive $drivename -PSProvider -Root \\$server\$share -Persist -credential $admincredentials
} -ComputerName $computername

But it is creating the drive at local machine only.

Please share any idea on this.

Thank you

Another option would be to use a client like WebDrive or Filezilla. My preference is WebDrive because it's more stable and versatile.

However, you are likely just missing something – running as Administrator when you should not be (or vice versa), or you didn’t set the scope to Global. You also may be forgetting the –Name switch to be entered into the code.
