Simple Powershell script connect to servers as a different user

A common practice in IT is to have a separate admin account to connect to servers.

Often in day to day administration of SharePoint servers, it’s necessary to connect to the c$ or d$ share to look at a log file, copy an installer, etc…

You can do this from windows, and it will usually prompt you for credentials, but that can be a pain if you regularly connect to a bunch of machines that need different credentials.

This script will prompt you for a password, then use that password along with a pre-defined user account and server list to connect you to each server in advance.
