This article explains the difference between Local Host and Remote Host Execution Mode in most SAM script monitors commonly found on PowerShell script monitor:




  • SAM


In Local execution mode, the script is ran on the Orion server

  • The code that executes might query remote resources, but the code is running locally on the Orion server.

In Remote Execution mode, the script is 'uploaded' and ran on the target server

  • This mode of operation requires properly configuring WinRM on both the Orion server, as well as the remote host.

Note: You can achieve the same results as remote execution mode without the need to configure WinRM by installing the Orion agent on the remote host and using local execution mode.
