    I am fairly new to PowerShell and I am running a PowerShell script to create a MS Teams site, create channels, and assign an owner.  When I run the script, it is successful (even the owner is successfully assigned) but throws an error.

    # Set vars
    $TeamName = "Site Name"
    $TeamDescription = "Description text goes here"
    $TeamVisibility = "Private"
    $TeamOwner = ""
    # Connect to Teams
    Start-Sleep -Second 10
    # Create new Teams Site
    $group = New-Team -DisplayName "$TeamName" -Description "$TeamDescription" -Visibility "$TeamVisibility"
    Start-Sleep -Second 45
    # Add users, set permissions
    Add-TeamUser -GroupId $group.GroupId -User "$TeamOwner" -Role Owner
    The above line throws an error:

    Add-TeamUser : Error occurred while executing Add-TeamUser
    Code: Request_BadRequest
    Message: One or more added object references already exist for the following modified properties: 'owners'.
