PSTK Disable the INFO and DEBUG streams


Does anyone else have the same issue with the PSTK module loaded from the MS PSGallery where they get screen after screen of Green background text after each command?  Looked into it and it looks like data coming from the Write-Information  and Write-Debug console streams.  I've checked system variables and reloaded the module twice with the same behavior.  It ignores the Preference variables set in the PShost.

Hi MichaelMcCormick,


You can see if Debug level is enabled using the following commandlet: Get-NaToolkitConfiguration. What version of the PSTK are you using?

Re: PSTK Disable the INFO and DEBUG streams


What is the default level that is supposed to be set out of the box? Error? It seems to have changed to Debug for version 9.8.0 of the Toolkit. That seems like a mistake.

Hi Francis_Favorini,


I installed PSTK 9.8 and confirmed the default loglevel is not enabled/off.


Here is my reproduction in the lab:


PS C:\Users\administrator> import-module dataontap

PS C:\Users\administrator> get-module
