  • I had a similar issue, and I am including my response to it below this answer. If I am reading your Command Line Syntax correctly, it is not recognizing the /ComputerOU switch, because it is bracketed ([/ComputerOU=Unity]). Unbracket this switch, and change the syntax to :

    Code Snippet



    . If you happent to need to specify a container that has spaces in the name, you will need to wrapp that in double quotes like :

    Code Snippet
    /ComputerOU:OU="Unity Two"



    . The same applies to the PoolName switch.



    I had this same problem, and i felt like a real doorknob once I figured it out..


    In your Command Line Syntax, wrap parameters whose values have spaces in them with double quotes. for example, the line you are failing is where

    Code Snippet
    /TrusteeGroup:OCS Admins



    is. Change this to

    Code Snippet
    /TrusteeGroup:"OCS Admins"



    , and re-run the command. You will get a new error that says The initial separator / was not found on switch Controllers, so obviously you will need to do the same for

    Code Snippet
    /ComputerOU:OU="Domain Controllers"



    Fix, and re-run the command. This time, the command should succeed. I also referenced the HTML log it writres into : C:\Documents and Settings\YOURCURRENTUSERNAME\Local Settings\Temp\1\ (look for the newest file by mod date) , and that is actually somewhat helpful. Other than that, your syntax is perfect.


    I hope this helps someone.
