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.

What you will need

  • SnapCenter Server must have been installed and configured.

  • You must be a local administrator on the host or a user with administrative privileges.

  • You must be a user that is assigned to a role that has the plug-in, install, and uninstall permissions, such as the SnapCenter Admin.

  • You must have reviewed the installation requirements and types of supported configurations before installing the Plug-in for Exchange.

  • The host on which you want the Plug-in for Exchange installed must be a Windows host.

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 running Get-Help command_name. Alternatively, you can also refer to the SnapCenter Software 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.
