Management Shell is implemented as a Windows PowerShell module, providing an extension to the Windows PowerShell environment. The commands provided by Management Shell conform to the Windows PowerShell standards, and are fully compatible with the default command-line tools that come with Windows PowerShell.
You can open Management Shell by using either of the following procedures. Each procedure loads the Management Shell module into Windows PowerShell. If you do not load the Management Shell module before you run a command (cmdlet) provided by that module, you will receive an error.
To open Management Shell
- At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, run the following command:
In the Name parameter specify the name of a file in the module and the file path. By default, the following path to the SyncServiceManagementShell module is used: C:\Program Files\One Identity\Active Roles\7.4\SyncService\SyncServiceShell\SyncServiceManagementShell.psd1.
Alternatively to start the Active Roles Synchronization Management Shell, depending upon the version of your Windows operating system, click Active Roles 7.4 Synchronization Service Management Shell on the Apps page or select All Programs | One Identity Active Roles 7.4 | Active Roles 7.4 Synchronization Service Management Shell from the Start menu.
Upon the shell start, the console may display a message stating that a certain file published by One Identity is not trusted on your system. This security message indicates that the certificate the file is digitally signed with is not trusted on your computer, so the console requires you to enable trust for the certificate issuer before the file can be run. Press either R (Run once) or A (Always run). To prevent this message from appearing in the future, it is advisable to choose the second option (A).
