New-NcVserver not working with SVM DR options


Hi All

I've hit a possible bug with Powershell Toolkit 4.20 when trying to create a DR SVM on Ontap 9.0RC1 (Simulator), the CLI works fine by the way, I will be trying with 9.0GA shortly unless someone else has this working?



Create a new SVM using New-NcVServer using appropriate switches e.g


New-NcVserver -Name $MySVM -RootVolume $MyRootVol -RootVolumeAggregate $Myaggr -RootVolumeSecurityStyle $Style -Language $Lang


This works fine, now to create a DR SVM the code should be:


New-NcVserver -Name $MyDRSVM -SubType dp-destination


If you press enter at this point the cmdlet prompts for inputs for RootVolume, RootVolumeAggregate etc...

If you then specify values for these paramaters the cmdlet then outputs a message stating that only name, comment and ipspace are valid parameters when creating a destination Vserver for DR. 


Result can't create a DR SVM, am I missing something here?
