  • I know this is a silly question but, does a person generally install the 64bit powershell on 64 bit windows?  I assume yes

  • 1 - when i copied this script, i got a lot of unicode spaces. don't know how that happened.

    2 - when i run it, i get lots of what looks like dumped registry entries in white text and access errors in red text.

    does this need to be updated?

  • Has the local administrator account been renamed?


  • My old desktop cd drive was damaged and USB boot isn't supported in BIOS l, forgot my password I was completely locked out.

    Then connected HDD to another computer and renamed the files as in first method. I was surprised to see that Windows doesn't know it is cmd not accessibility file. 😀

    You saved my day! Thank you!!!

  • got it.  I'll check there

  • You might want to include the following commands:

    Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

    This allows you to run the script on the comptuer

    Import-Module PSWindowsUpdate

    This imports the module so you can use it

    If the PC doesn't have internet access, you can copy the PSWindowsUpdate folder from C:WindowsSystem32WindowsPowerShellv1.0 folder from a computer with internet to the same folder on the non-internet computer. Then run:

    Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
    Import-Module PSWindowsUpdate

  • in my case it is not logging scripts logs which is invoked by my c# code, what will be the solution?

  • After transcription on Invoke-Command I am getting The term 'Out-String' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet

  • $account = [ADSI]("WinNT://$Computer/Administrator,user") - When I check $account after this, it returns an error "format-default : The following exception occurred while retrieving member "distinguishedName": "Unknown error (0x80005000)". Hence the value $account is empty.

  • No, it is not just a long string. You can use object properties to parse the result. I gave a few examples in the article.

  • err yes because this was the get-volume before the clear-disk. But shouldn't clear-disk report an error if that was the case?

    DriveLetter FriendlyName    FileSystemType DriveType HealthStatus OperationalStatus SizeRemaining      Size

    And this is it after the clear-disk

    I am looking for a way to change the partition type from MBR to GPT.

    Thanks for your time.

  • Does anyone know that format of "Import-EC2Image -DiskContainer $container" if you need to specify multiple volumes during import?

  • Hello Mike,
    Great article. However, I'm trying to deploy the printers to computer configuration since our users are always changing. The deployment is not working. I've the correct drivers and I can manually add the printer to any workstation with the shared name.

    I have disabled PnP, I've added domain computers to the delegation tab on the gpo and authenticated users are also present on the delegation. I've linked the GPO directly to the domain and then targeting the printers to different OUs. I even enforced the GPO just incase there was another GPO that was blocking it.

    Any pointers?

  • Well, yes, but the content is just one long string, hence my question...

    $BlobCSV.Content might technically be an array, but [0] has everything...

  • As you can see, the variable doesn't contain just a string, but a WebResponseObject. This means you can use this object to extract all the data you need.

  • Thanks for taking the time to reply 🙂
    Yes, I do have a url, it was late and I forgot to include it here...

    $BlobCSV = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri $url -Headers $AuthHeaders
    IsPublic IsSerial Name                                     BaseType
    -------- -------- ----                                     --------
    True     False    WebResponseObject                        System.Object
    IsPublic IsSerial Name                                     BaseType
    -------- -------- ----                                     --------
    True     True     String                                   System.Object
    IsPublic IsSerial Name                                     BaseType
    -------- -------- ----                                     --------
    True     True     Byte[]                                   System.Array

    I guess these are all the types you'd expect.

    I guess this isn't helped by the billing report having two lines with text before the CSV columns start on line 3...

  • Just found the confirmation in this conversation at another forum:

    That’s correct. NPS is not involved at all on the device tunnel. The machine certificate used for device tunnel authentication is evaluated on the VPN server only.
