  • You have to install the Quest Active Roles software.  It is not a Microsoft product.  Contact Dell for assistance.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • I'm not sure I understand. PowerShell comes with Microsoft Server OS editions and is working great on all my other servers except this one DC. Quest Active Roles software has nothing to do with PowerShell.

  • How can I get PowerShell to not look for Quest Active when it starts up?
