Writing to Event Log with PowerShell - System.Object[ ] conversion error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to write a script that will write an event to the application log when a script is run that finds an account for which delegation has been configured. The code I've been trying to get working is this:

    $result=Get-ADGroupMember -Identity "Domain Admins" | ForEach-Object {Get-ADUser -Identity $_ -Properties  AccountNotDelegated | Where-Object {$_.AccountNotDelegated -eq $false} | Format-Table DistinguishedName,AccountNotDelegated -AutoSize}
    If ($result -ne $null) { 
    Write-EventLog -Logname Application -Source "My Test" -EntryType Warning -EventID 1 -Message $result}

    When I run this, I get the error:

    "Write-EventLog : Cannot convert 'System.Object[]' to the type 'System.String' required by parameter 'Message'.
    Specified method is not supported."

    Does anyone know how I might change this so I can get the output I'm after, without having to first write the data to a text file on the file system?
