Get-NaVolOptions failing

PS C:\Users\Forgosh\Downloads> Get-NaVolOption coxDS
Get-NaVolOption : Could not find file 'C:\Users\Forgosh\AppData\Local\Temp\qzuzpksi.dll'.

Same result if I specify -Name coxDS


Re: Get-NaVolOptions failing


Is it safe to presume the following statements are true?

* coxDS is the name of a volume

* coxDS belongs to the NetApp controller to which your script has most recently connected

* the user account under which the script is running (or the credentials provided to the Connect-NaController cmdlet) have sufficient rights on the NetApp

Are you able to run other commands successfully?  For example:

$vols = Get-NaVol | Sort-Object -Property Name



Re: Get-NaVolOptions failing

It turns out to be an issue (possibly Malware) in the virtual machine I was using. All cmdlets work properly from my new VM.

Re: Get-NaVolOptions failing

I finally nailed down the source of the problem. It turns out to be DropBox of all things. I installed the DropBox client so that I could store my code in the cloud and the errors started again. I uninstalled the DropBox client and all is well again.


Re: Get-NaVolOptions failing

FYI, on my laptop I use both dropbox and the PowerShell toolkit just fine.  So while I don't doubt on your system there was some negative interaction it doesn't appear to always be this way.
