Since i've previously attempted on testing the VTL to Cloud Replicator, I would like to mention that there can be a possible error in the process. Just so noone rings the alarm beforehand, it's quite simple to overcome the "Setup failed to install Microsoft .NET Core. Error 3010" by either rebooting the node, or installing the .NET core before installing StarWind.
After getting in touch with them, I was actually surprised that they were kind enough to take that into account in one of their future releases and mention to have that fixed.
Just to clarify: PowerShell is not required here because wusa(.exe) is a regular executable file, not a cmdlet. Any other way that let you execute a program with elevated rights will do (e.g. cmd.exe, shortcuts, ...)
When we work strictly from Windows Server Core installations we need to be able to do everything from the command line, even user management. Let's add a user that already exists into a group that already exists in Active Directory using only PowerShell.
To do this we have the handy Add-ADGroupMember PowerShell commandlet. This is very easy to use in its basic form, all we need is the name of the group and of the user that we want to add. In this case, I want to add user jane to the group "Domain Admins".
Add-ADGroupMember "Domain Admins" jane
That's it, jane is added automatically. This process, like most, is silent on success. To verify that all is as we want it to be, we can use the Get-ADGroupMember command to look up the members of a group.
Get-ADGroupMember "Domain Admins"
Can also do
Add-ADGroupMember -identity "Domain Admins" -members "jane" -WhatIf
to see if it gets added before actually running the command.
