    Hello, I am stumped with an issue that I'm having. I am trying to automate a common task which is set up as a scheduled task that runs under a specified domain user account. The part of the script's job is to connect to a domain controller and set up profile users for new hires. I have set up a custom session configuration file which is used to allow PowerShell remoting to the domain controller.

    The problem is that once the account is connected, using the get-volume command does not return any results. I have already given the account permissions in WMI to the ROOT:/Microsoft/Windows/Storage namespace. No errors are being reported.

    I'm fairly certain this is a permission issue, but I don't know what rights I'm needing to give to allow the user to retrieve the volumes.

    Below is a transcript of the problem from an interactive session. Notice that in this example I am simply connecting as the user account and interactively attempting to retrieve the volumes.
