Invoke-command problem

by wuwu at 2012-08-16 22:52:08


I have this script:

$strSvr_Cluster = “ZServer4”
$script_ConfigurationEACluster =
Write-Host $InputFile
$InputFile1 = “c:\Temp\EAInstallerInput.xml”
# $InputFile1 = “\zserver100\c$\Temp\EAInstallerInput.xml”

[xml]$xmlinput = (Get-Content $InputFile1)
If ($xmlinput.Configuration.EA_Adapters)
ForEach ($Adapter in $xmlinput.Configuration.EA_Adapters.EA_Adapter)
$Adaptername = $Adapter.Name
Write-Host $Adaptername

Invoke-Command -ComputerName $strSvr_Cluster <br> -ScriptBlock $script_ConfigurationEACluster
-ErrorAction StopThe problem:

When the variable $InputFile1 = “c:\Temp\EAInstallerInput.xml” then the script works fine and i get the right result:


Adaptername: MES_EA_EQ1

Adaptername: MES_EA_EQ2

When the variable $InputFile1 = “\ZServer\100\c$\Temp\EAInstallerInput.xml” then the script doesn’t work.

I get this error:

Cannot find path ‘\zmucmossdev100\c$\Temp\EAInstallerInput.xml’ because it does not exist.

you could also put your
$InputFile = "\zserver100\c$\Temp\EAInstallerInput.xml"
$InputFile = ‘\zserver100\c$\Temp\EAInstallerInput.xml’
…with single quotes.
The “$” from the admin share is probably being interpreted.
If you get an error like that make sure that Test-path returns true so that you know there are no typos or escaped value issues.
