Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade pstools -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade pstools -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Package Approved

This package was approved by moderator TheCakeIsNaOH on 17 May 2024.

Description

The Windows NT and Windows 2000 Resource Kits come with a number of command-line tools that help you administer
your Windows NT/2K systems. Over time, I've grown a collection of similar tools, including some not included in the
Resource Kits. What sets these tools apart is that they all allow you to manage remote systems as well as the local one.
The first tool in the suite was PsList, a tool that lets you view detailed information about processes, and the suite is
continually growing. The "Ps" prefix in PsList relates to the fact that the standard UNIX process listing command-line tool
is named "ps", so I've adopted this prefix for all the tools in order to tie them together into a suite of tools named
PsTools.

Features

The tools included in the PsTools suite, which are downloadable as a package, are:

  • PsExec - execute processes remotely
  • PsFile - shows files opened remotely
  • PsGetSid - display the SID of a computer or a user
  • PsInfo - list information about a system
  • PsPing - measure network performance
  • PsKill - kill processes by name or process ID
  • PsList - list detailed information about processes
  • PsLoggedOn - see who's logged on locally and via resource sharing (full source is included)
  • PsLogList - dump event log records
  • PsPasswd - changes account passwords
  • PsService - view and control services
  • PsShutdown - shuts down and optionally reboots a computer
  • PsSuspend - suspends processes

Package Parameters

The following package parameter can be set:

  • /AcceptEula - set the EULA for the tools to accepted on installation. This is at a user level so will only be for the current user.
    e.g. choco install -y pstools --package-parameters="/AcceptEula"

Notes

  • This package is automatically updated using the Chocolatey Automatic Package Update Model (AU).
    If you find it is out of date by more than a day or two, please contact the maintainer(s) and let them know the package is no longer updating correctly

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
