Help! I’m fairly new to PowerShell so bear with me if this is an obvious fix, but I haven’t found an answer yet. I’m trying to use the DNSCmd.exe command to add a DNS entry on a remote computer. I’m using PowerShell to run the command remotely using PSSession.
The issue is, I get the REMOTE_ACCESS_DENIED error from DNSCmd.exe when I run the command remotely with PowerShell, but it works if I’m actually logged into the remote computer and run the command locally using the same credentials.
Attempting via PSSession (From Win 8):
PS D:\> Enter-PSSession -Credential $creds SERVER1 [SERVER1]: PS C:\windows\system32> dnscmd.exe DNSSERVER /recordadd ZONE dnstest1008 A 192.168.1.100 Command failed: ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED 5 0x5
Performed on SERVER1 (Server 2012):
PS C:\windows\system32> dnscmd.exe DNSSERVER /recordadd ZONE dnstest1008 A 192.168.1.100 Add A Record for dnstest1008.ZONE at ZONE Command completed successfully.
