The Password Capture Agent Windows PowerShell module was designed to simplify the setup and management of the Password Capture Agent on domain controllers. This module requires Windows PowerShell remoting to be configured and enabled on the domain controllers to establish a connection and run the commands.
This Windows PowerShell module is intended for use on a Windows workstation with Windows PowerShell version 3.0 or later installed and while logged on with a domain account that is in the Domain Admins built-in group. The Password Capture Agent installer must be placed on a shared network or copied manually to all domain controllers.
To allow administrators to better check for configuration errors, we integrated some validations into the functions that will display warnings on any possible misconfiguration: for example, if the password encryption certificate is not installed.
NOTE: This module does not install the web service. This module also does not generate and install the certificate required to encrypt passwords sent to the web service.
