Hi..
I'm trying to run a script from C#.

the script looks like this...

     new-mailbox -database abc -name test1 -linkeddomaincontroller abc1
-linkedmasteraccount abc\test02 -organizationalunit "ou=XYZ" -userprincipalname test02@test.com -linkedCredential:(Get-Credential  tester1)


 Using the following code.

   
            RunspaceConfiguration rsConfig = RunspaceConfiguration.Create();
            PSSnapInException snapInException = null;
            PSSnapInInfo info = rsConfig.AddPSSnapIn("Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.Admin", out snapInException);
            Runspace myRunSpace = RunspaceFactory.CreateRunspace(rsConfig);
            myRunSpace.Open();


            Pipeline pipeLine = myRunSpace.CreatePipeline();
            Command myCommand = new Command("Get-Command");
            pipeLine.Commands.Add(myCommand);
            Collection<PSObject> commandResults = pipeLine.Invoke();


            // create a pipeline and feed it the script text
            Pipeline pipeline = myRunSpace.CreatePipeline();
            pipeline.Commands.AddScript(_scriptText);


            pipeline.Commands.Add("Out-String");

            // execute the script
            Collection<PSObject> results = pipeline.Invoke();


But I get the above error.. how can I pass in the Credentials / Object ?  
thanks!

Like this:

$credential = get-credential tester1
new-mailbox -database abc -name test1 -linkeddomaincontroller abc1
-linkedmasteraccount abc\test02 -organizationalunit "ou=XYZ" -userprincipalname test02@test.com -linkedCredential $credential

Open in new window

Of course, the new-mailbox command and switches need to be on a single line for it to work :D

How do I pass this to my _scriptText var?

like this?

_scriptText = "$credential = get-credential tester1

                      new-mailbox -database abc -name test1 -linkeddomaincontroller abc1...";


On 2 lines?  

thanks

or..

I have to build the script and pass it in.....

1.Runspace runspace = System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.RunspaceFactory.CreateRunspace();
2.        PowerShell powershell = PowerShell.Create();
3.        PSCommand command = new PSCommand();
4.        command.AddCommand("New-PSSession");
5.        command.AddParameter("ConfigurationName", "Microsoft.Exchange");
6.        command.AddParameter("ConnectionUri", new Uri(liveIdconnectionUri));
7.        command.AddParameter("Credential", cred);
8.        command.AddParameter("Authentication", "Basic");
9.        powershell.Commands = command;
