  • First question: Did you add the .net and powershell frameworks to the WinPE image? Specifically, which ones?

    That's *not* to say that the Active Directory Cmdlets will actually be available in WinPE, that's a different question.

    Have you tried creating a web service to perform the task?

  • thanks Keith for your reply

    Yes i have added .net and PS in boot image.

    web service is not an option, atleast for now.

    this script works fine in custom TS.

    But not in TS

  • My guess would be that option two is loading with a different profile than option one and option two does not have AD cmdlets available.  I personally do not run any of my powershell scripts through the Run PowerShell Script option.  I prefer the option of running any scripts of significance as an application and calling it with the command line powershell.exe -executionpolicy unrestricted .\myscript.ps1 -  always has been more reliable for me. 

    Here's a great example of that process -


    That way I can organize my scripts inside of applications and update them with some sort of organizational logic.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi,

    Afaik, using AD powershell module can only be done with trickery as it originaly comes with RSAT.

    I'ts "of course" unsupported but works with modification in your PE image. What is happening to your script is that you probably missed some files. check this post http://mickitblog.blogspot.fr/2016/04/import-active-directory-module-into.html for a full check. If you've already done that and still have problem, you could try to add the path of your AD Module to the  enviroment variable PsModule before your import module command:

    $env:PSModulePath = $env:PSModulePath + ";C:\MyADModulePath\"
