PowerShell Error Debug Help: "Quota Violation"

Ok,

I've got this code running against a server:

Write-Output "..Event Log Warnings"
$WmidtQueryDT = [System.Management.ManagementDateTimeConverter]::ToDmtfDateTime([DateTime]::Now.AddDays(-7))
$colLoggedEvents = Get-WmiObject -computer $Target -Authentication PacketPrivacy -query ("Select * from Win32_NTLogEvent Where Type='Warning' and TimeWritten >='" + $WmidtQueryDT + "'")

Open in new window


(This was taken from another script that I've been modifying to debug a variety of errors, etc., but appeared to be working will until it ran into a server with a LARGE event log.)

While this code runs, I evently get his error:

Quota violation
At :line:152 char:33
+       $colLoggedEvents = Get-WmiObject <<<<  -computer $Target -Authentication PacketPrivacy -query ("Select * from Win32_NTLogEvent Where Type='Warning' and TimeWritten >='" + $WmidtQueryDT + "'")

Anyone know how to solve this issue?

This is also running for me without errors. Are you using Powershell 1 or 2? If 1, upgrade to 2 and see if that fixes your problems. Download here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968930

Well, there's a known bug when running WMI queries against a Windows 2003 machine...

Well, the version in the listed hot-fix is much older than the one installed on the current Windows 2003 SP2 system I'm running the script against.

The version I've got is 5.2.3790.3959 (which is the same as the SP2 version).

The one listed in the article is 5.2.3790.86, and from 2003.

Also, the hotfix information doesn't list replacing the latest one with and significantly older one...  Whatcha all think?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Anyone....

I also get this error:

The WriteObject and WriteError methods cannot be called after the pipeline has been closed. Please contact Microsoft Support Services.

The answer to this question / problem is two fold.

1) As above with what ACBROWN2010 indicated...

2) When the remote registry service is not turned on.

I object, as I'd like to award at least partial points to ACBrown2010.
