  • The -SSHConnection parameter description should note that:

    • The only required key in the hashtable is ComputerName,
    • That the alias for ComputerName is HostName and the alias for KeyFilePath is IdentityFilePath.
    • There is a an additional key, Subsystem, that is currently not documented at all - it corresponds to the -ConfigurationName parameter.
    • See source-code file PSRemotingCmdlet.cs.
  • Worth noting in the description of the -SSHTransport switch that it is implied if -HostName is also specified, so that it is sufficient to use -HostName <host> to target a single host via SSH (with default connection parameters).
