Using Security Explorer cmdlets

IMPORTANT: All command utilities should be run while logged on as an Administrator. The Security Explorer® cmdlets must be run as an administrator with elevated privileges (if UAC is enabled). The Security Explorer cmdlets should be used only by those familiar with Windows PowerShell®.

The Security Explorer cmdlets function very similarly to the included command utilities. You can view help by typing the cmdlt name with no arguments or by typing get-help set-sxpbackup.

To use the Security Explorer cmdlets, you must create or edit the PowerShell.exe.config file, and install the cmdlets.


Creating or editing the PowerShell.exe.config file

PowerShell.exe.config is found at:

Windows® 64 bit: %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0
Windows 32 bit: %SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0

Create or edit the file as follows:

Installing Security Explorer cmdlets

If the script execution policy on your system prevents the execution of SXPPowerShellControl.exe, which is used to install Security Explorer cmdlets, you need to install the DLLs manually. See Installing Security Explorer cmdlets manually.

Click Start, point to Programs | Quest | Security Explorer | PowerShell | Run PowerShell. A message appears explaining that if the attempt to add the cmdlets fails, you need to add them manually.

Installing Security Explorer cmdlets manually

The install command line will vary according to whether you are working with Windows PowerShell® 1 or Windows PowerShell® 2. The following instructions are for working with Windows PowerShell 1. If you are working with Windows PowerShell 2, adjust the command text accordingly.

If you are running the 32-bit version of Windows PowerShell, type:
