You can install the SnapCenter Plug-ins Package for Windows on multiple hosts simultaneously by using the Install-SmHostPackage PowerShell cmdlet.

What you will need

You must have logged in to SnapCenter as a domain user with local administrator rights on each host on which you want to install the plug-in package.


  1. Launch PowerShell.

  2. On the SnapCenter Server host, establish a session using the Open-SmConnection cmdlet, and then enter your credentials.

  3. Install the SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft Windows on multiple remote hosts using the Install-SmHostPackage cmdlet and 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.

    You can use the -skipprecheck option when you have already installed the plug-ins manually and you do not want to validate whether the host meets the requirements for installing the plug-in.

  4. Enter your credentials for remote installation.
