I have used PowerOrion in the past, I have created a GUI to add a node to SolarWinds and add Custom Properties and it runs great.
I am adding the PowerShell GUI to a shared server for others on my team to use.
I have downloaded PowerOrion from PowerOrion A Module for PowerShell · solarwinds/OrionSDK Wiki · GitHub
and have added to my PS Module Path and ran Import-Module PowerOrion.
But, when I run Get-Command -Module PowerOrion, I do not see the Connect-Swis command, and when I run Connect-Swis I get this message below.
On my Admin server where I am able to successfully run the GUI, running the Get-Command, I do see the Connect-SWIS command.
Am I missing something?
Solved! Go to Solution.
wow! fast answering - thx
yes, i ran "Add-PSSnapin SwisSnapin" but it is still not available
I am not allowed to connect to the internet with my servers 😞
Meanwhile my security colleagues grant me access to the Internet with the Win7 machine, but:
caused this error:
Was not able to save the module on the local machine
One of the changes between PowerOrion 0.0.6 and 0.0.6.1 is removing the call to Add-PSSnapin SwisSnapin. This was done to allow using it only the SwisPowerShell module on machines that do not have SwisSnapin installed. Maybe this is why the SwisSnapin cmdlets are no longer listed as being part of PowerOrion?
I see that "Add-PSSnapin SwisSnapin" did not return any error here. In that case, I would expect Connect-Swis to be available in that session. Do you still get the "command not found" error afterwards?
I don't know why you are not able to find the SwisPowerShell module even with the firewall exception. Maybe Save-Module talks to some other server or port in addition to https://www.powershellgallery.com/ ? Or maybe it is just not registered on the Win7 machine. What does "Get-PSRepository" say? Does it list "PSGallery"?
Did you run "Add-PSSnapin SwisSnapin"? Did it yield any errors?
Note that Connect-Swis and related cmdlets are also available from the SwisPowerShell module, which is on PowerShellGallery: PowerShell Gallery | SwisPowerShell 18.104.22.168
