Windows PowerShell

I cannot run get-QADUser or set-QADUser on my domain controller. I get the error
PS C:\Users\Administrator> get-QADUser
get-QADUser : The term 'get-QADUser' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet,
 function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or
 if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:1
+ get-QADUser
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (get-QADUser:String) [], Command
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

It is like these commands are not installed.
I am trying to run commands like
Set-QADUser -Identity "Testuser" -IncludedProperties @("msNPAllowDialin", "msRADIUSFramedIPAddress", "msRASSavedFramedIPAddress") -ObjectAttributes

Those are not built in cmdlets in windows. They were created by a 3rd party in the 2008 era when powershell didn't have built-in AD cmdlets. You need to install their software to use them.

If you have scripts with the dependencies, you can still find and install the software. But for one offs or new scripts, I recommend no longer using QAD cmdlets. Powershell now has its onw (different) cmdlets for almost all AD related tasks.

Can you tell me what to use instead of

Set-QADUser -Identity "Testuser" -IncludedProperties @("msNPAllowDialin", "msRADIUSFramedIPAddress", "msRASSavedFramedIPAddress") -ObjectAttributes

I am trying to add or change ip address on the DialIn tab.

It may have its own cmdlets but the QAD commandlets still excell and in a lot of cases allow quick and easy single commands that the builtin AD commandlets dont do.

Install them and use them :D

Well I am disappointed!   Guess this is what happens when a BIG company (Dell) buys out a software house (Quest) !

Bad bad Dell!

I can not find out what to use. The link sends me to DELL software page, but I am looking for some free solution. Strange if this can not be done with bult in windows commands.

Set-QADUser use Set-ADUser
Get-QADUser use Get-ADUser

I have tried that (Set-ADUser) but cannot find out how to add ip address to dialin prophertis for the AD user.
I know I have to convert the IP address to decimal and that is no problem. I think this is something called msRADIUSFramedIPAddress
