The Password Capture Agent Windows PowerShell module was designed to simplify setup and management of 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 execute the commands.
This Windows PowerShell module is intended to be used on a Windows workstation with Windows PowerShell version 3.0 or later installed and whilst being logged on with a domain account that is in the built-in group "Domain Admins". The Password Capture Agent installer needs to be placed on a network share or copied manually to all domain controllers.
To allow administrators to better check for configuration errors we integrated some validations to our 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 Webservice. This module does not generate and install the certificate required to encrypt passwords sent to the web service.|
The Password Capture Agent Windows PowerShell module has different requirements for the workstation or server the module is running on and for the domain controllers where the Password Capture Agent is installed.
The Password Capture Agent Windows PowerShell module requires Windows PowerShell version 3.0 or later. It is recommended to use Windows PowerShell version 4.0 if you are running Windows 7 or later, or Windows Server 2008 R2 or later.
The execution policy for Windows PowerShell has to allow the execution of signed scripts. For more information, see the execution policy guide for Windows PowerShell (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh847748.aspx).
