I am trying to install PWPS_DAB on one of our servers but I receive below error which I assume it is due to policies to block any sites. Is there a way to download pwps_dab and install it without dierect access to online resources?
Thanks in advance,
PS C:\Windows\system32> Install-Module pwps_dab -force

Hmmm, if I remember right I think Dave mentioned they added some analytics to pwps_dab, that may require internet access. So you might still have problems after the install.
you might be better off running your scripts from a machine other than that Server. I use a virtual machine separate from all my actual servers to run powershell.
We have decided to follow up on the internet connection of that server.

Brian Flaherty or Dave Brumbaugh will need to help out here. Not sure if there is a registry hack or something that can disable the analytics.
Went down the path of getting internet access for that server.
