Script will not run, but if you run each line separately it does. RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I try to run this all at one time it does not work.  If I open it up and run each line one by one it works?  I am not sure why this will not work, running it in a PS1 file?

    Enter-PSSession -ComputerName <server names>
    Import-Module ADSync
    Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta

  • Enter-PSSession is designed to be used for INTERACTIVE sessions. If you want to send commands to a remote machine you should use Invoke-Command. Please read the complete help including the examples to learn how to use it.

    Regardless of that: Please format your code as code here in the forum using the code posting tool provided on the icon bar of the post editor (second to last icon). Thanks.

    Something like this could be a start for you:

    Invoke-Command -ComputerName "ComputerName" -ScriptBlock {
        Import-Module ADSync
        Start-ADSyncSyncCycle -PolicyType Delta

    Live long and prosper!

  • Hi,

    what is the behaviour when you run all the lines at once? Do you get any error and if yes, what does it say?

    Did you try to import the module for the session:

    $ADSyncSession = Enter-PSSession -ComputerName <server names>
    Import-Module -Name ADSync -PSSession $ADSyncSesssion
