Environment

Identity Manager 4.5 - Active directory shim

Situation

Need to execute multiple powershell commands via the active directory shim powershell interface
For Eg:  In the below example account needs to be enabled for Lync.

$spwd = ConvertTo-SecureString "sjSD8jsdJAJDs" -AsPlainText -Force;
$mycreds = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ("Client/pdsadmin", $spwd);
$sessionOption = New-PSSessionOption -SkipRevocationCheck:$true -SkipCACheck:$true -SkipCNCheck:$true;
$session = New-PSSession -ConnectionURI "https://dcsvr1.Client.ad.local/OcsPowershell" -Credential $mycreds -SessionOption $sessionOption;
Import-PsSession $session -AllowClobber;
enable-csuser -Identity "CN=lynctestu1,CN=Users,DC=Client,DC=ad,DC=local" -Registrar "dcsvr1.Client.ad.local" -SipAddress "sip:lynctestu1@Client.ad.local" -DomainController "dcsvr1.Client.ad.local";
Remove-PSSession $session;


The driver may report the following error :
Error completing powershell command.  ERROR:

Resolution

The powershell commands have to be submitted as script block, by enclosing the commands within curly braces and then preceding with an ampersand as shown below

The second option is to not use the ";"
