Hi. Trying to install. Keep getting the following error.

Import-Module : File C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\SetLinuxVM\webserver/modules/functions.ps1 cann
ot be loaded. The file C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\SetLinuxVM\webserver/modules/functions.ps1 is
not digitally signed. The script will not execute on the system. Please see “get-help about_signing” for more details.

Any Ideas.

Thanks for your time.

Hello Joe,

Try to install latest version. Thats fixed in latest version.

Are you sure that’s fixed. I just download the 4.0 zip and I receive the same error. Did you forget to upload the new zip with the corrections ?

On a side note is there any way to automate this via websitepanel for Linux installs ?

Sorry disregard my last post. i see version 4.3 on the other site. would still like to know about a possible linux – websitepanel – hyper-v install template.

If the password is wrong or the VM is in rebooting state, Set-LinuxVM still passes all the commands to the VM. The setup process will go into loop when the clear command is issued.

That’s very good feedback, thanks.

BTW, I have no chance to know if the password is wrong or not. But I can change some logic to make that better.

Username and password issue when VM is in rebooting state is fixed with latest version. Please download SetLinuxVM v4.4.
