New PS user here (Learn Windows PS3 in a month of lunches in the mail!) and still pretty new to windows business solutions. I am new to a growing company. I work directly under the IT manager/integrator for the east coast, of a west coast based company. He has rights within the organizations Active Directory for specific locations (certain OUs or organizational units). We have been tinkering with his PC in PS3 and when we try a very basic command - get-wmiObject -class win32_bios -computerName XXX, XXX, XXX we receive a error message -> (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)). We are running as admin and he should have the right to access the specified computers. Any suggestions?
Also, a concern of his is corporate seeing us performing ADComputer -flter * operations. If we control certain OUs, would the filter * only “grab” information from the respective OUs we have permission to access, or would the cmdlets in fact try to interact with the greater hierarchy of AD that we dont have rights to? Make sense?
I am a young enthusiast and I am very eager to learn. Thanks for the help and sorry for being a noob!
