Issue with Powershell results typing in manually vs runnig within script

All,

If I enter the command >Get-NaVol manually in Powershell it list all Volumes on the controller in a chart like view as seen below.

However, if I run the same exact command with a Powershell script (*.ps1).  The results are layed out much differnet as seen in the 2nd example.

Is there a way to run the script to have it display the volume information as in example 1 ?   Thanks for any help.

 

Joe

Thats because get-navol uses default templates on the output.xml

 

what's your PS1.. please post it

Re: Issue with Powershell results typing in manually vs runnig within script

Thanks for the reply.  The script is still being written for what I want it to accomplish but, here are the lines in the script that I'm using currently.

 

    $Filer = $(Read-Host -prompt "On which NetApp filer are you creating the LunClone?")
    
Connect-NaController $Filer -credential (Get-Credential) -HTTPS
Get-NaVol
Get-NaLun

 

My end game is to present the user running the script the table format of the Volumes and Luns on the stated controller to answer the next group of questions the script will ask the user.

What is listed above works fine other than the way it displays the volume and lun information.

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

Re: Issue with Powershell results typing in manually vs runnig within script

Have you tried simply piping to Format-Table?

 

$Filer = $(Read-Host -prompt "On which NetApp filer are you creating the LunClone?")
    
Connect-NaController $Filer -credential (Get-Credential) -HTTPS
Get-NaVol | Format-Table
Get-NaLun | Format-Table

I'm still learning Powershell and it's syntax and possibilities so, didn't even think to use that cmdlet for the output.
