GroupID 10 – GroupID Management Shell
We want to use GroupID Management Shell to create Smart Groups. However, when we launch Management Shell, it gives the following error and no cmdlet seems to work. Is there a way to resolve this issue?
This issue occurs when GroupID Management Shell is unable to load the Nest.dll file while making a connection to the identity store. To resolve it, follow the steps given below.
|Note:||It is highly recommended to create a backup or snapshot of the GroupID instances before proceeding with any major changes.|
Locate the GroupID.ps1 file at the following location and create a backup of the original file before making any changes to it.
[GroupID Installation drive]:\Program Files\Imanami\GroupID 10.0\
Open the file with Notepad++ and find the following code on lines 18-21.
Replace these lines of code with the following and save the changes.
if (test-path "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Imanami\GroupID\Version 10.0")
$global:groupidhome = (get-itemproperty "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Imanami\GroupID\Version 10.0").Path
[Reflection.assembly]::LoadFile($global:groupidhome + 'Nest.dll')
Relaunch GroupID Management Shell and it will load normally, as shown below:
All the standard cmdlets available within GroupID Management Shell to manage, create, and manipulate objects can be used now.
