PowerShell Script in windows 2012 R2 is not working

Dear All,

i create a new PowerShell script "CreateVM.Ps1" and i run it from PowerShell in windows 2012 R2, the problem is; the first command done, but the remaining is not running, the script to create VHDX, below:

NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB1\Exch-DB1.vhdx -SizeBytes 495GB
NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB2\Exch-DB2.vhdx -SizeBytes 495GB
NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB3\Exch-DB3.vhdx -SizeBytes 495GB
NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB4\Exch-DB4.vhdx -SizeBytes 495GB
NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB5\Exch-DB5.vhdx -SizeBytes 495GB
NEW-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB6\Exch-DB6.vhdx -SizeBytes 495GB


do i have to do anything in between the command above?

What Kash wanted to suggest (next time please do so, Kash!), is
foreach ($loc in 'Exch-DB1', 'Exch-DB2', 'Exch-DB3', 'Exch-DB4', 'Exch-DB5', 'Exch-DB6') {
  new-VHD -Fixed C:\ClusterStorage\$loc\$loc.vhdx -SizeBytes 495GB
}

Open in new window

But that does not change the issue at hand, probably. There has to be an error message stopping the script.

Are you getting any errors?

Does it work like this:

NEW-VHD -Path C:\ClusterStorage\Exch-DB6\Exch-DB6.vhdx -Fixed -SizeBytes 495GB

Remember, you can use -Whatif to see what the line does...

I have 2 hyper-v  modules so I had to select the right one.  Note the Size vs SizeBytes
