Importing the cmdlets into the Windows PowerShell console

If you install the Centrify Audit Module for PowerShell in the default location, it is a self‑contained Windows PowerShell console. If you install the files in the location for system modules so that cmdlets from other modules are available in the same console, you should import the Centrify Audit Module for PowerShell into your default Windows PowerShell console.

Note:   According to Microsoft, the Import System Modules task is available only Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 when Windows PowerShell 3.0 is not installed on the computer. Beginning in Windows PowerShell 3.0, modules are imported automatically the first time that you use a cmdlet in the module.

To import the auditing module:

  1. On the Start menu, select Windows PowerShell to display a menu extension with a list of Tasks.
  2. On the Tasks menu, select Import System Modules to import the auditing module and open the Windows PowerShell console.
  3. Verify the installation and import completed successfully by typing the following command:

    get-command *-Cda*

You should see a listing of the Centrify audit cmdlets, similar to the following:
