vRanger uses Windows PowerShell® with a Quest snap-in to provide scripting access to vRanger features and functions. This feature lets vRanger integrate with other data protection solutions and offers an efficient configuration option for advanced users.
The vRanger installer automatically installs Windows PowerShell® 1.0 and the vAPI snap-in during the product installation. Before using the vAPI cmdlets, you must first configure the PowerShell execution policy to run the vRanger scripts. This process is a one-time configuration that does not need to be repeated.
1 Click Start > All Programs > Quest > vRanger Backup & Replication > vRanger Console.
When opening the vRanger Console for the first time, you see an error message stating that the execution of scripts is disabled on your system. This issue is due to the default PowerShell execution policy, which must be enabled.
