No volumes returned from Get-Volume RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all, I am trying to delegate a certain task to be automated via a scheduled task run under a service account. I have set up a  session configuration that allows the service account to connect via powershell remoting, but the problem is that when running get-volume there are no volumes returned. I can run the same command as an administrator and I get all the volumes. I have already assigned permissions to the ROOT:/Microsoft/Windows/Storage namespace in WMI, and no errors are being reported when the command is run.

    Any idea what permissions need to be given to allow the service account to pull the volumes?

  • Not enough information. 

    When running a task you need to be sure you are saving the errors. No output does not tell us anything.  An exception early in the script can result in no output.  Without the exceptions there is no way to analyze this.

  • There is no exception.... at any point. It acts like it completes successfully but does not return a value.

  • Here is a transcript of what is happening... this is it, notice there is no complicated script. I'm doing this interactively.
