I am trying to install DXA 1.7 on Web 8.5 and am running into the below issue. Everything is over HTTP and not HTTPS. SDL, Web UI and WebServices all has Windows Authentication as "Enabled" in IIS. Tried passing CmsUser and password as parameters to the cmsimport command but no luck. Any idea what else is missing?

Command used is - .\cms-import.ps1 -importType all-publications -cmsUrl "http:///"

Copied 'C:\Softwares\SDL DXA .NET 1.7\cms\DXA Application Data Definition.xml' to 'C:\Program Files (x86)\SDL Web\config\ImportExport\ApplicationData' Get-CoreServiceClient : Exception calling "GetCurrentUser" with "0" argument(s): "The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Negotiate'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Negotiate,NTLM'." At C:\Softwares\SDL DXA .NET 1.7\cms\cms-import.ps1:138 char:22 + $coreServiceClient = Get-CoreServiceClient "Service" + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-CoreServiceClient], MethodInvocationException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : MessageSecurityException,Get-CoreServiceClient


After trying many options, I did unblock (in properties) each and every file in "cms" and "importexport" folders under the DXA 1.7 installable, was able to run the cms-import.ps1 without issues.
