I am trying to disable Data Deduplication on Windows Server 2012 R2. When I try to run any of the deduplication commands in Powershell I get the term disable-dedupvolume is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet message. I get the same message no matter which dedup command I try to run. I tried running Import-Module Deduplication but that results in no valid module file was found.
I have also tried upgrading PowerShell from 4.0 to 5.1.
Can someone tell me where I can get these commands from?
Thanks in advance.
The commands should be available in once the DeDuplication feature is installed on the server; if you run the below does it show up as installed?
Get-WindowsFeature -Name FS-Data-Deduplication
In addition, can you see the deduplication settings via Server Manager (assuming this isn't a core installation of 2012R2?
