I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You're going to go into Central Administration.  Check which Web app hosts the MySites and give the credentials powershell will be run under Full Control
