I've set up AD Kerberos authentication on my vSphere hosts and use this for local administrative access. I'd like to use Powershell to manipulate the hosts, and sometimes that means logging onto the host directly rather than VC. In either case I want to use passthru authentication so I don't need to store or pass AD credentials. Does anyone know if this can be done?

You should post your question in the PowerCLI forum: http://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/vsphere/automationtools/windows_toolkit
Most likely you'll be using the SSPI for pass through authentication, though I'm not sure how about the specific, someone in the PowerCLI forums should be able to answer your question pretty quickly.
