Azure Service Fabric SDK setup fails with logman beeing unknown cmdlet

Published on 03 October 2015

Recently I looked into microservies. I've read the excelent book "Building Microservices" (affiliate link) and tried to combine Microservices with Microsoft. Luckily for me, I was born in exciting times and Microsoft just released an SDK for their new Microservice Framework Service Fabric.

Unfortunatly I had problem with the installation. Download and installation went well, but on the step Install and start a new cluster I got the error that the cmdlet logman is not known. After some googling I found out that logman is in fact on my laptop. It's just unknown to my powershell...

set-alias logman C:\Windows\System32\logman.exe

Will fix this nasty error.
