Installing the splunk-reskit-powershell

I'm having issue getting started with the Splunk-reskit-Powershell module.

The Getting Started with the Splunk PowerShell Resource Kit document shows you how to get started without actually telling you where the place the files found in the SDK repository @
https://github.com/splunk/splunk-reskit-powershell

So looking at other powershell documentation I manually recreated the folder structure at splunk-reskit-powershell / Source / Splunk on the site and copied it to C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules

So now if I run

PS C:> Get-Module -ListAvailable -Name Splunk

ModuleType Name ExportedCommands


Manifest Splunk {}

I can see Splunk is listed.. but the ExportedCommands is not the same as the documentation output:

PS > Get-Module –ListAvailable –Name Splunk

ModuleType Name ExportedCommands


Script Splunk {Set-SplunkLicensePool, ...


My Folder structure is as follows:
PS C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\Splunk> ls

Directory: C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\Splunk

Mode LastWriteTime Length Name

And If I perform an import I get the following:

PS C:\users\axm3196\desktop> Import-Module -Name Splunk
Import-Module : The module manifest 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\Splunk\Splu

What page did I miss in the instructions because the documentation I'm finding assumes I already know how to install these files and that does not appear to be the case.

Thanks in advance.

I found my issue. It appears the content of my files had some illegal characters from copying off the site. #UserError

I found the zip/tar of the files on the site https://github.com/splunk/splunk-reskit-powershell/downloads

I aslo found the import modules documentation on Microsoft technet. All is well! 🙂

splunk-reskit-powershell required splunk license file?

@ginger8990 no, there is no license requirement for the resourcekit. In future, please open a separate question instead of tagging onto someone else question/answer.
