Specifically, I am looking at giving a user the permissions to run PowerShell commands, on a SharePoint 2013 server, remotely from their PC.
The user was a sharepoint administrator on sharepoint 2010 and had administrator rights on the windows 2008 server. Now we are moving to windows 2012 and sharepoint 2013 and the powers-that-be want to limit the amount of users with admin rights to the servers as we do so. That's fair enough but they don't know how to do it for sharepoint and have given me the task - and I know nothing about sharepoint. So, any help would be appreciated - even just letting me know where to go to find the information I need. I have googled but everything I find seems to assume a certain level of knowledge on sharepoint.
