How to check status of Vscanner services with WFA



I have developed a custom command in the WFA as below

param (
[parameter(Mandatory=$true, HelpMessage="Cluster IP address")]

[parameter(Mandatory=$true, HelpMessage="Storage Virtual Machine name")]

# connect to controller
Connect-WfaCluster $Cluster

# create the export policy
Get-WFALogger -Info -message $("Getting status of Avscanner '" +$VserverName + "'")
Get-NcVscanConnection -VserverContext $VserverName -ErrorAction Stop


when i am testing it, this is executing successfully, but i am not getting any output as expected(status of vscan)

can someone please help me on this

i manually use vserver vscan connection-status show this command to get the status. 



If you connect to your controller with Connect-NcController in a normal PowerShell session and then run your Get-NcVscanConnection cmdlet manually outside of WFA, do you get the proper output back? 


Hi Danny,

sorry for the late reply.

yes, i am getting the status information when i am running Get-NcVscanConnection cmdlet manually outside of WFA,

but when i am trying to use the same api in WFA (in custom command), i am not getting any errors(command is executing successfully) and also i am not getting any output.
