No output running Get-NtapFilerData


Hello all,

The results from Get-NtapFilerData has been working for the past 9 months.


I upgraded to Data ONTAP 8.2.4P4 7-Mode and now the Get-NtapFilerData command doesn't run. 


Here's the output (servername's have been removed).

PS C:\Windows> Get-NtapFilerData -Name 'servername-a', 'servername-a-a', 'servername-b', 'servername-b' -credential $cred | Format-NtapFilerData | Out-NtapDocument -WordFile 'c:\NetApp-Output\NetApp-System Configuration.Doc
put\NetApp-Airports System Configuration.xlsx' -CustomerName 'DTech' -CustomerLocation 'Airport'

Thanks in advance for the help,



Hi Joe,


I believe this issue has been resolved in the latest 3.1P1 release. I'm assuming you are running version 2.6?
