Invoke-Command -ComputerName remotecomputername -ScriptBlock {Backup-SPSite -Identity "http://remotecomputername:8080" -Path "C:\Users\username\Documents\SiteBackUp\BackUp8080"} -credential username

the error is get is :

The term 'Backup-SPSite' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the sp elling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again. + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (Backup-SPSite:String) [], CommandNotFoundException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

The script block doesn't include the pssnapin so this is likely the issue. –  shufler Mar 26 '13 at 16:11

Are you using Windows PowerShell or SharePoint Management Shell? This is however an old question and here you may find something useful: End user site backup
