Running Powershell Script with Orchestrator

The script works fine, but when run in Orhestrator I receive the following error:
error summary text: Only administrators can change settings for all users

This does not give me any clue.

The code gibberish below is from Orhestrator that is used for mapping values from other parts of the runbook to the script:
$vCenterHost = "xx.xx.xx.xx"
$vCenterUser = "xxx\xxxxxxxx"
$vCenterPass = "xxxxxxxx"
