We recently had a strange anomaly occur on 2 VMs out of several hundred. The symptoms are very strange but we are unable to run PowerShell out of:
When opening a window you get:
AuthorizationManager check failed
No modules or components of a profile load
Once you get a prompt the most basic commands do not exist example:
Get-ChildItem, set-location ect. The aliases to these command exists
If I launch PowerShell with
We can get a prompt and core registered commands Get-ChildItem, set-location ect.
We have no desire to attempt to run the SysWOW64 but want to fix the issues that’s causing this to occur.
Running in the SysWOW64 mode we are unable to load a module in the System32 folder and noticed in the SysWOW64 mode if we set-location to the System32…Modules ect that you are actually in the SysWOW64 folders.
We have also looked at the environment variables ect and are having a difficult time with this one and we are about to open a ticket with Microsoft on this.
Any ideas or comments are appreciated and I will post back our results.
