If you do not load the Recovery Manager for Active Directory Management Shell snap-in before you run a command (cmdlet) provided by that snap-in, you will receive an error.

A later version of Windows
  1. Click Start.
  2. Point to All Programs | Quest | Recovery Manager for Active Directory Disaster Recovery Edition.
  3. Click Management Shell.
On the Start screen, click the Management Shell tile.

Upon the shell start, the console may present you with a message stating that a certain file published by Quest 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).
