Hello EE,

I wish to send commands to an interactive command line interface. It works ok in a regular powershell.exe console , but not when i try to use the invoke-command as below , it interprets the "display" as a powershell command , in reality , I am still inside the runmqsc command  interface.

This works:
P:\>runmqsc INTYUL2
5724-B41 (C) Copyright IBM Corp. 1994, 2002.  ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
Starting MQSC for queue manager INTYUL2.


display ql(INTYUL2.CLIENTSET3.DCS.JUNK) CURDEPTH
     1 : display ql(INTYUL2.CLIENTSET3.DCS.JUNK) CURDEPTH
AMQ8409: Display Queue details.
   QUEUE(INTYUL2.CLIENTSET3.DCS.JUNK)      CURDEPTH(0)
end
     2 : end
One MQSC command read.
No commands have a syntax error.
All valid MQSC commands were processed.

Open in new window


This does not from ISE:

invoke-command -computer iasapp204 -scriptblock {

runmqsc INTYUL2 
Start-sleep -s 5
display ql(INTYUL2.CLIENTSET3.DCS.JUNK) CURDEPTH

}

Open in new window

what if you give the full path of display in the code?

do you have display installed on remote computer iasapp204 ?
(for that to work, display should be existing on the remote machine)

Sorry, in the first working example, the commands are issued from powershell locally on iasapp204. So to answer your question , yes it is installed and working locally.

then you need to pass it like paremeter or script to runmqsc not like powershell command.
The way you wrote it - for the section in brackets is each line considered to be powershell command.
