I try to execute this following command in ps script :

$ComputerName = (get-WmiObject win32_computersystem).Name
$server = "\\" + $computername
$U = $env:USERNAME
sc $server  config sshd type= own
sc $server config sshd obj= $U password= $env:password

This error is returned

Set-Content : A positional parameter cannot be found that accepts argument 'sshd'.
At line:1 char:3
+ sc <<<<  $server config sshd obj= $U password= $env:password
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidArgument: (:) [Set-Content], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.SetContentCommand

How can I resolve this problem?
