Update (July 21, 2017): I said it in the comments, but I guess people aren’t reading that far down… I appreciate that people like the Quest AD PowerShell module, but I will not allow links to pirated copies of the module to be posted on my site. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: If the link doesn’t come directly from Dell, Quest, or whoever owns this software now, I’m not going to let anyone post the link in a comment. People are welcome to use Google and find it themselves, but I’m not going to let this blog become a conduit for that. Even if it is/was freeware, you shouldn’t be downloading PowerShell modules from third parties and the copyright holder still owns the software and the ability to distribute it.
I moved on and started using the official Microsoft AD module… you might want to consider doing the same.
Update (December 27, 2016): And, looks like they’re available on Quest’s site again (thanks to Robert in the comments!):
Update (December 3, 2016): As a few people have pointed out, the link has died again. I’ve had a few people post a link to a web site that is hosting the files, but I’m not going to post that link. If they’re making it this hard to find the PowerShell module, it’s time to move on and use the official AD module from Microsoft.
Update (May 19, 2016): Many thanks to commenter Killian! It looks like Dell has moved it… again. This is the second time that the link has broken by my count. My advice? Don’t use the Quest/Dell PowerShell cmdlets. Use the Microsoft provide AD module. Dell clearly doesn’t want people finding the download for this tool.
I recently had the need to share the download link for the Quest PowerShell cmdlets for Active Directory and had some issues finding it. I found that going to Quest.com, resulted in an error:
I get the whole branding thing, but killing off a domain name and breaking everyone’s links, Favorites, etc…. that’s really annoying. Apparently the domain name change from Dell acquiring Quest isn’t the only thing that’s changed.
Nonetheless, here’s the link:
