Appendix: Windows PowerShell Commands

Introduction

The GPOADmin PowerShell commands are installed during a complete or custom installation. (Asssuming that you have Windows PowerShell currently installed.)

The GPOADmin provider and commands allow you to perform virtually all available functionality through a command line.

For detailed examples on using the commands, see Using the GPOADmin PowerShell commands (Examples).

Before you can use the commands, you must register them on the system where GPOADmin is installed.

Import-Module -Name <GPOADmin Install Directory>\GPOADmin.psd1.
Once the GPOADmin provider is loaded, it creates two default drives called "VCRoot" and "PSRoot".
