Win 7-8-2008-2012 : Get-EventLog : The network path was not found. At SomePowershellScript.ps1:1 char:1 [Solved]

This week I had to do some powershell scripting on different servers.

There was one server who reacted not in the same order as the other servers.


For example:

Executing the command :

get-eventlog -computername ServerName –list

Returns with the error :

Get-EventLog : The network path was not found.

At line:1 char:13

+ get-eventlog <<<< -computername eurowcs01

+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-EventLog], IOException

+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.IO.IOException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetEventLogCommand




Enable the service “Remote Registry” on the destination server
