remote registry and insert analysis services dumps on sql table

Hello,

I try to access on a remote server registry for executing this function :
function imp-dumps {
	$inst_list=(&$OSQL_CMD -E -S $R -d Monitor -h -1 -b -Q "set nocount on; select RTRIM( +'''' + instancename + '''')  FROM [Monitor].[dbo].[INSTANCE_NAME]  where InstanceName = '$I' ")
	if ($CO -eq "Dumps" -or $CO -eq "ALL") {
		ForEach($inst in $inst_list)  {
		$comp_name1=(get-itemproperty -path "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance Names\OLAP").$inst_name
		$key_name="HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\"+$comp_name1+"\CPE"
		$serverLogFolder=$(Get-ItemProperty $key_name).ErrorDumpDir
 		$DateToCompare = (Get-date).AddDays(-1)
 		$dumps = dir $serverLogFolder | ?{$_.name -match “^*.mdmp$”} | sort name | where-object {$_.lastwritetime –gt $DateToCompare}
		$dumps | SELECT LastWriteTime,Name, Length
		$coll_dumps=(&$OSQL_CMD -E -S $R -d Monitor -h -1 -b -Q "set nocount on;
		INSERT INTO DUMP
		SELECT  '$I', getdate(), $dumps)')")
		echo $coll_dumps | out-file $log_file
}
}
}

Open in new window


This error is returned : Get-ItemProperty : Cannot find path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance Names\OLAP'.

How can I resolve this problem?

Thanks

Can you RDP to that remote server to check and make sure that you have the path from error above in the registry?

If you can't RDP then try code below that should list all path under: 'SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance Names\' - obviously you run this in a SSMS query against that SQL Server:


EXEC master.dbo.xp_regread N'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE', N'SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server', N'InstalledInstances'
