    I downloaded and ran the install script for powershell module from Commvault. But it seems not stay loaded after a reboot and there are a bunch of messages saying that standard verbs isn't used.


    Isn't that module a normal PS module that stays installed? Do I really have to load it each time?

    And as a comment, maybe it would be a good idea to prefix the commands with something like CV, for easier destinction to know what module it belongs.

    HI Henke

    THank you for trying our PS module and thank your the feedback. If youre talking about exe, Installer just extract copies the modules to the selected location.

    Since \Install-CVModules.ps1 file will import all the modules for that session and it doesnt copy to any windows powershell profiles. so you will not see it loaded after reboot. 

    If you want them accessible always, please copy them manually to create profile under system32 folder that lets all users to access it.


    For the commandlet name change i will add this roadmap, and change them in future servicepacks.

    if you have more questions reachout to me, i will send you my email

    Dear Anand,

    I hit a similar issue than Henke. As soon as I exit PowerShell window, CommVault PowerShell module are not available anymore. It is obviously normal as Install-CVModules.ps1 script only import and execute Get-CVModules module, which in turn import CommVault modules.

    It would be nice either to indicate in README to copy modules somewhere (e.g. under Program Files) and add this location to PSModulePath.


    Best regards, Olivier.

    Hi Olivier,

    Please try our latest version2. We now install to powershell path so no import required like version1.

    Let me know your feedback. The package should be available now from Commvault packages and also on Git.

    I downloaded new package, but unfortunately installation requires NuGet that must be downloaded from internet, which we do not have access from that server ... :-(

    I will check whether we can have a temporary access or install it on another server.


    I will keep you posted, Olivier

    I finally took time to install CV PowerShell modules on a suitable machine.

    I will give it a try and let you know.
