HI All,

I want the following snapins to automatically load when I start powershell:

Add-PSSnapin VMware.VimAutomation.Core
Add-PSSnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement

how can I do this?

Thank you in advance.

Add those commands to your PowerShell profile

Type $profile in PowerShell console.. Then you will get the profile path..

Example..
C:\Users\<username>\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1

If the file is not available in the path then create it and add the Add-PSSnapin commands tot he file.. restart the console then it should work as expected..

You can do this by putting them in your profile (if it exists, otherwise create one).

Very easy how-to (also to create the profile if need be) for this here

Modify your PowerShell profile. It will be located on your local profile or home directory.

Example.

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Microsoft.PowerShell_profile.ps1

If the path and file does not exist create them. Once done add your 2 lines.

Add-PSSnapin VMware.VimAutomation.Core
Add-PSSnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement

They will load when you start PowerShell.

don't forget that the ISE has its own profile.
