I am trying to deploy a SharePoint web part (deployed on a SharePoint 2007 server) to a new SharePoint 2010 server. I am connected to it via Remote Desktop Connection. When I run (as admin) Windows PowerShell the first thing it tells me is that "The local farm is not accessible." I read that I need to run PowerShell as an admin and make sure I add my user account to the farm admin group. How do I do that?
Are there other steps I need to take as well? I am new to this, so I don't know where everything is.
