Installing Plug-in for Exchange from the SnapCenter Server host using PowerShell cmdlets

You should install the Plug-in for Exchange from the SnapCenter GUI. If you do not want to use the GUI, you can use PowerShell cmdlets on the SnapCenter Server host or on a remote host.

Before you begin

Steps

  1. On the SnapCenter Server host, establish a session using the Open-SmConnection cmdlet, and then enter your credentials.
  2. Add the host on which you want to install the Plug-in for Exchange using the Add-SmHost cmdlet with the required parameters.

    The information regarding the parameters that can be used with the cmdlet and their descriptions can be obtained by runningGet-Help command_name. Alternatively, you can also refer to the Cmdlet Reference Guide.

    The host can be a standalone host or a DAG. If you specify a DAG, the -IsDAG parameter is required.
  3. Install the Plug-in for Exchange using the Install-SmHostPackage cmdlet with the required parameters.
    This command installs the Plug-in for Exchange on the specified host, and then registers the plug-in with SnapCenter.
