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'.
At line:1 char:16
+ Get-NaVolOption <<<<  coxDS
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (NetApp.Ontapi.Filer.NaController:NaController) [Get-NaVolOption], FileNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ApiException,DataONTAP.PowerShell.SDK.Cmdlets.Volume.GetNaVolOption

Same result if I specify -Name coxDS



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


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.



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.

Win7 64bit

PowerShell DataONTAP module 1.2.0





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
