The inspiration has been my project to write up an article detailing a simple Exchange install for a single server Exchange 2010 environment. The aim was to provide a simple set of steps for small IT shops to follow, which lead my to try and automate a few things.
Whilst doing writing a script with user interaction to set the logon format for OWA I kept getting the below error:
The string starting:
At C:\Users\administrator.GAOTS\Desktop\SetOWALogonFormat.ps1:56 char:55
+ Write-host "Nothing has been changed, script quit <<<< " -foregroundcolor $WarningForeground -backgroundcolor
is missing the terminator: ".
At C:\Users\administrator.GAOTS\Desktop\SetOWALogonFormat.ps1:61 char:18
+ iisreset /noforce <<<<
+ CategoryInfo : ParserError: ( -foregroundcol…sreset /noforce:String) , ParseException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : TerminatorExpectedAtEndOfString
Well it turned out that a couple of things were the problem.
Firstly I checked for any “ that were in the wrong place (or in my case additional ones!)
Then I did a find and replace on all “ in the script which seemed to make the parser happy! I guess maybe this was the age old copy and paste problem with smart quotes from word??
Hope that helps a little!
