Hi Expert,

What is a valid parameter for LocalAccountNames and Local Account, this script doesn't work properly? Can you tell what's missing?

Thank you.

      [Alias('un')][String[]]$AccountName,
      [Parameter(Position=2,Mandatory=$false)]
      [Alias('cred')][System.Management.Automation.PsCredential]$Credential
)
      
$Obj = @()

Foreach($Computer in $ComputerName)
{
      If($Credential)
      {
            $AllLocalAccounts = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_UserAccount -Namespace "root\cimv2" `
            -Filter "LocalAccount='$True'" -ComputerName $Computer -Credential $Credential -ErrorAction Stop
      }
      else

Running the script on a system here, it seems to work as I would expect it to.  

What command line are you using when running the script?  
What error are you getting?
Did you write the script yourself?  If not, where did it come from?

Thank you. When I used ISE to select the script and pressed F8 the script worked fine but I discovered a script error when I made a manual entry. My mistake. Thank you for the quick response.
