Can't get Set-QVWComputer -PersistentClient to work with 8.0 PS Module

My code worked on 7.2.1, but I can't get it to work since upgrading to 8.0. I'm just trying to assign a user to a VDI, Set-QVWComputer is the only command I'm having an issue with.

The error I'm getting is "The specified filter was invalid."

Example command:

Set-QVWComputer -Farm (Get-QVWFarm) -PersistentClient 'Domain\UserName' -Identity 'VDIComputerName'

This "Specified filter was invalid" issue was resolved in version 32 of the 8.0 PowerShell module.

The version that you're running must be greater than 8.0.306.32 - please verify that you're running an up-to-date version of the module.

It looks like removing an assignment works:

Set-QVWComputer -Farm (Get-QVWFarm) -PersistentClient '' -Identity 'VDIComputerName'

However, I now get an error when trying to go to the properties of that machine in the management console (just that one machine, all of the others are fine).

Hey Chris,

I'm sorry you're having problems. We will try and reproduce this issue in house and update you as soon as we know more. I would suggest to avoid running this cmdlet on more machines as it seems to have corrupted the VMs record in the database. If this VM is important please send me a direct message and I can guide you through repairing the record.

Thanks,

Adam

Hi there,

I'm getting same error "Specified filter was invalid"

I've tried two diferente ways:

1-

PS > Set-QVWComputer -Farm FarmName -Identity "VMName" -PersistentClient "DES000\Testprovision"

Set-QVWComputer : The specified filter was invalid.

At line:1 char:16
+ Set-QVWComputer <<<< -Farm ExternosIT76 -Identity $ImportedVM.Name -PersistentClient "DES000\Testprovision"
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Set-QVWComputer], Exception
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : Quest.vWorkspace.PowerShell.Infrastructure.SetQVWComputer

2-

PS > $ImportedVM.PersistentClient = "Domain\UserName"
PS > $ImportedVM | Set-QVWComputer -Farm FarmName

Set-QVWComputer : The specified filter was invalid.

At line:1 char:30
+ $ImportedVM | Set-QVWComputer <<<< -Farm ExternosIT76
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Set-QVWComputer], Exception
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : Quest.vWorkspace.PowerShell.Infrastructure.SetQVWComputer

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks,

Thanks for the answer Joel.

I'm using 8.0.306.31 so it seems you're right but, I'm trying to download a greater version and I'm not able to find a valid download link; (http://en.community.dell.com/community/vworkspace/beta

Could you provide me a valid download link.

Thanks again for your help!
