Issue

SnapCenter Plug-in for Microsoft Windows (SCW) sometimes reports an error similar to the following example in the Windows Application Event log.

Example 1:

  Critical SDW PID=[<PID>] TID=[<TID>] The running command stopped because the preference variable "ErrorActionPreference" or common parameter is set to Stop: entry doesn't exist 
    at System.Management.Automation.Internal.PipelineProcessor.SynchronousExecuteEnumerate(Object input, Hashtable errorResults, Boolean enumerate)
    at System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.LocalPipeline.InvokeHelper()
    at System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.LocalPipeline.InvokeThreadProc()

Example 2:

  Critical SDW PID=[<PID>] TID=[<TID>] The running command stopped because the preference variable "ErrorActionPreference" or common parameter is set to Stop: entry doesn't exist 
   at System.Management.Automation.Runspaces.PipelineBase.Invoke(IEnumerable input)
   at SnapDrive.Nsf.Common.PowerShell.PSHelper.RunCommand(Command command, IEnumerable input)

Outputs similar to the following example can be seen in SCWDebug.log.
