Install Consul Hashicorp trough Powershell

The Consul Hashicorp DNS service is a frequently used and modern service. Enclosed you will find a Powershell Script to install the Consul-Client as a Windows-Service. The script also allows you to run a version update.

When using the script you have to adjust the variables in line 1-13. For the update only the version number has to be adjusted, which is based on https://releases.hashicorp.com/consul/.

The script creates and updates the following config Files:
\config\consul.hcl
\config\node_exporter.json

If you don’t need this, you can comment it out of the script yourself.
