Exchange 2010, running scripts in  management shell

Posted on 2010-09-23

I have a nice new exchange 2010 install.  it's all perfect except that I want to run the script that installs the spam filter.  when I open the namagement shell, it takes me to the path c:\windows\system32.

At that command prompt, I run ./install-AntispamAgents.ps1 and I get an error that the command is not recogonized as a cmdlet.  So, I figure that script is not in my path.

Do I just CD to the directory and try it or what?

I guess my summary question is when I open the management shell, i expect to be able to run all scripts that are available but I can't.  it seems they are somewhere else.  How do I run scripts from the management shell?

You can do one of two things.

Enter in the absolute path to the script "c:\program files.....\install-aintispamagents.ps1"


CD to the directory and try to run it again.
