Hi all,

The variable $ID has an value when i try to run the script(printed this). I am trying to run the script from a client and the script is running on the server. Any ideas about what i'm doing wrong?

ForEach-Object : Cannot bind parameter 'Process'. Cannot convert the "-ComputerName" value of type "System.String" to type "System.Management.Automation.Scrip
No incident exists with given id

At \\computername\c$\Script\emailenduser.ps1:9 char:40
+ $incident = Get-SCSMIncident -ID $ID |% <<<< {$_.Object} -ComputerName "computernamehere" (i assume this has to be between " and with \\ in front of it?)
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [ForEach-Object], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CannotConvertArgumentNoMessage,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.ForEachObjectCommand

Thanks in advance!

It'd help if you post that part of the script.

For computer, all you need is the computer name, but you may not be putting it in the right place:

Get-SCSNIncident -ID $ID -ComputerName myscsmserver | ...

it looks like this is the pipeline you're trying to run:
$incident = Get-SCSMIncident -ID $ID | %{ $_.Object} -Computername -computername

which is the same as:
$incident = Get-SCSMIncident -ID $ID | foreach-object { $_.Object} -Computername -computername

this means that you are attempting to assign -ComputerName parameter to the foreach-object cmdlet which won't work. If you need to use Get-SCSMIncident with a remote system, be sure that you provide the computername parameter.

Get-SCSMIncident -ComputerName <name> . . .

Hi guys,

Thanks for your replys! i managed to fix it with jtruher his reply.

$incident = Get-SCSMIncident -ID $ID | foreach-object { $_.Object} -Computername -computername

had to be

$incident = Get-SCSMIncident -Computername -computername -ID $ID | foreach-object { $_.Object}

It was in the wrong order :(
