How to reset a Domain User Password with Remote Powershell


I want to reset my own Active Directory Password on a remote Machine (different domain).

If I use the following code snippet locally it works perfectly:

    [string]$oldPassword = $(Read-Host "Old password"),
    [string]$newPassword = $(Read-Host "New password")
$ADSystemInfo = New-Object -ComObject ADSystemInfo
$type = $ADSystemInfo.GetType()
$user = [ADSI] "LDAP://$($type.InvokeMember('UserName', 'GetProperty', $null, $ADSystemInfo, $null))"
$user.ChangePassword($oldPassword, $newPassword)

Running following snippet on the remote machine fails:

$ADSystemInfo = New-Object -ComObject ADSystemInfo
$type = $ADSystemInfo.GetType()
Invoke-Command -Session $Session -ScriptBlock {
    param($rtype, $RemoteADSystemInfo, $OldPassword)
    $user = [ADSI] "LDAP://$($rtype.InvokeMember('UserName', 'GetProperty', $null, $RemoteADSystemInfo, $null))"
    $user.ChangePassword($OldPassword , "TestPa$$w0rd"")
} -ArgumentList $type,$ADSystemInfo,$Password
Error Message: Method invocation failed because
