There is nothing displayed when running Test-SPContentDatabase powershell cmdlet. When saving the result to htm file it is also empty. What am I doing wrong?

This is what I do:
Test-SPContentDatabase –name WSS_Content –WebApplication http://demo1 -serverinstance demo2\testdbase | ConvertTo-Html | Out-file c:\TestSPContent.htm

Check your syntax. I believe that -serverinstance should be the SQL server name and
-databasecredentials should have the UserID and password
