I saw a "Log on as Batch job" option in GPO, so I think this feature might be available.

I would like to logon to multiple machine, execute a cmd or powershell script on the machine locally. Just like how you do that with SSH.

Any ideas? It's best that I don't need to install additional software on each server.

I wouldn't involve RDP. Either Powershell itself, quite a few native command line utilities typically support /S <computername> or PSExec will handle 99% of what you need to do remotely.
