This project provides a set of advanced functions for working with Site Recovery Manager via PowerCLI. It is intended to augment the existing PowerCLI cmdlets for SRM and is distributed as a PowerShell module. Hopefully the SRM support in PowerCLI continues to improve so that these functions will ultimately become unnecessary.

How Do I Get Started?
First, review the Documentation for the SRM cmdlets natively provided by PowerCLI.
Next, download the SRM Cmdlets zip file (see section above), extract it and and add the extracted
Meadowcroft.SRM folder (and its contents) to your PowerShell path. For example I extract mine into the
My DocumentsWindowsPowerShellModules directory to get quick access to the modules.
See Microsoft’s Installing Modules instructions for more details and options on installing modules.
If the module was successfully added to the path used in your PowerCLI session then running the following command will provide a list of all the available functions:
Get-Command -Module Meadowcroft.SRM
All the functions will have the default prefix
Srm unless you choose to override this when importing the module.
You can import the module by executing:
The documentation for each of the listed functions can be examined using the Get-Help cmdlet, for example:

The SRM-Cmdlets project is hosted on github at https://github.com/benmeadowcroft/SRM-Cmdlets. This project includes an issue tracker as well as more details of the usage of the functions. There are a number of blog posts on this site containing examples of using these cmdlets and videos.
