Script Requirements

There are two basic requirements for using a script within Shavlik Protect:

See Creating a Custom Script for more information on these and other script requirements.

Console Requirements

Target Machine Requirements When Using PowerShell Remoting or Opening a PowerShell Prompt

Note: For additional details see about_Remote_Requirements in the PowerShell Help system.

Note: Although WinRM is automatically included in Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008 R2 - Core, it is not enabled by default on any of these operating systems.

Tip: The winrm quickconfig command is an easy method for enabling the protocol and setting up the default configuration.

Target Machine Requirements When NOT Using PowerShell Remoting

You do not need to install any additional software on the target machines. The script is run against selected target machines or machine groups without the services of WinRM (PowerShell remoting). The PowerShell client on the console communicates with the target machines by using other Windows remoting services such as remote registry service, remote Windows file sharing, WMI services, etc. The only ports required are the ports required by the Windows services being used.
