PowerShell Requirements

Are there min/max requirements for PowerShell installations for Server/Tentacles? For Tentacles it looks like 2,3 or 4 are explicitly mentioned, but will 5.1 work? It was just released, but what about PW Core 6.0? Thanks.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for getting in touch! PowerShell 5.1 should work fine, however we have not yet had any experience with PowerShell Core 6.0 so we can not say if it will work and what issues there will be.

    I would probably say its not a good idea to use it with Octopus until we officially support it.

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any further questions here or run into any issues.

    Best regards,
