The One Identity Manager Password Capture Agent Appendix About us

Troubleshooting

I am unable to import the Password Capture Agent Windows PowerShell module.

Windows PowerShell has an execution policy to restrict what may run. For more information about troubleshooting, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh847850.aspx.

  • Is the folder "OneIM-PasswordCaptureAgentMgmt" in any folder listed in $env:PSModulePath?

I am unable to establish a connection to the domain controllers.

The connection to the domain controllers requires Windows PowerShell Remoting to be configured and enabled. Also the firewall may block this connection by default. For more information about troubleshooting, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh847850.aspx.

I am experiencing problems installing the Password Capture Agent. Is there a way to get a log file?

Yes. Both Install-PasswordCaptureAgent and Uninstall-PasswordCaptureAgent have parameters that allow you to specify a log file and if logging should be verbose. The log file will be used by msiexec.exe.

Example 1

Uninstall-PasswordCaptureAgent`

-ComputerName "DC01.DEMOCORP.COM"

-LogFile \\StorageServer\SHARE\DC01.uninstall.log`

-LogVerbose

Example 2

Install-PasswordCaptureAgent`

-ComputerName "DC01.DEMOCORP.COM"`

-LogFile \\StorageServer\SHARE\DC01.install.log`

-LogVerbose`

-Setup "\\StorageServer\SHARE\PasswordCaptureAgent.msi"

Is it possible to automatically reboot the domain controllers after installing / uninstalling Password Capture Agent?

Yes. Both Both Install-PasswordCaptureAgent and Uninstall-PasswordCaptureAgent have a switch called restart which will do exactly this. It is $False by Default.

Example 1
