Specifying input files in PowerShell

To use input files in PowerShell, specify the location of the file in the command line. By default, OpenManage Essentials CLI starts at the following directory:
PS C:\Program Files\Dell\SysMgt\Essentials\Tools\CLI>
If you are running commands from the default CLI directory, with commands located in the directory one level from it (\samples), you can use either of the following methods of specifying the path to the input files:
  • Enter the entire path name in quotes. For example, Add-DiscoveryRange –Profile “C:\Program Files\Dell\SysMgt\Essentials\Tools\CLI\Samples\DiscoveryProfile.xml”.
  • Use a period (.) to retrieve the file located in the current directory, or .\directory to retrieve the file located one level from the current directory. For example, Add-DiscoveryRange –Profile .\samples\DiscoveryProfile.xml .
