Test-path doesn't work as expected


(Banchy) #1


I’m facing an issue when I’m testing path in IF statement. When I run the script from PowerShell all works as expected. When I add in Script template I’m facing with error all the time, whether I tried. The script basically, goes to all target servers, and zip IIS logs. In the beginning, tries to find C:\inepub\logs\logfiles, If doesn’t exist, it should exit the script … and there is an issue as I am getting all the time error output.
I tied with Exut, return, try to use Get-ChildItem…but, the output error went the same.

Get-ChildItem : Cannot find path 'C:\inetpub\logs\L' because it does not exist. 
At C:\Octopus\Work\20180416141949-394579-228\Script.ps1:39 char:9 
+ $dirs = Get-ChildItem -Path $logsPath -Recurse -Force | Where-Object  ... 
+         ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 
+ CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (C:\inetpub\logs\L:String) [Get-  
ChildItem], ItemNotFoundException 
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : PathNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetCh  
The remote script failed with exit code 1

Maybe I made mistake somewhere, but I can’t see it. Could someone help here?

-----------Script ------------------

$7zipLocation = "\\server_share\7-Zip\"
$limitT = (Get-Date).AddDays(-31)    # Test
$limitP = (Get-Date).AddDays(-365)   # Production

$servername = ${Env:ComputerName}
$logsPath = "C:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\"
$getName = ${Env:ComputerName}+'\'
$logFile = "backup_log_$servername.txt"

$target = "C:\Backup\"
$dirs = Get-ChildItem -Path $logsPath -Recurse -Force | Where-Object {$_.Attributes -like '*Directory*'}
$attachmentT = "$target$getName$logFile" 
$folderToCreate = Join-Path -Path $target -ChildPath $getName

if (!(Test-Path $logsPath)) {
    Write-Warning "Directory doesn't exist and will be created"
elseif (!(Test-Path -Path "$folderToCreate" -PathType Container)) {
    New-Item -ItemType Directory -Force -Path $folderToCreate
elseif (!(Test-Path -Path "$env:ProgramFiles\7-Zip\7z.exe")) {

Copy-Item -Path $7zipLocation -Destination $env:ProgramFiles\7-Zip -Recurse -Force

    Write-Host "7z copied to the target server "
else {
    Write-Host "Backup is started"

Foreach ($dir in $dirs) { 

	$result_path = $target + $getName + ($dir.LastWriteTime).ToString("yyyy-MM") + "\IIS\"
	$newdir = $result_path + $dir.name
	$items = Get-ChildItem -Path $logsPath$dir -Recurse -Force -Verbose
	Foreach ($item in $items) {
        set-alias 7z "$env:ProgramFiles\7-Zip\7z.exe"
		7z $arguments $compression -bso0 -bsp0 "$newdir\$item.zip" "$logsPath\$dir\$item" -ssw 
	$backup_log = Get-ChildItem -recurse $target\$getName | Sort-Object LastWriteTime  | out-File 
Write-Host "Backup the logs from $servername is completed."

Thanks in advance,
