I have updated one machine to windows 8.1 preview. After the update I then installed the remote server management tools for 8.1 as well to get the active directory management tools installed. I have been testing a cmdlet in powershell 4.0 now and it will not work. I am loading the activedirectory module and I am trying to run the following:

get-aduser -identity username -properties *

When I execute this cmdlt I get the following error:
Get-Aduser : One or more properties are invalid.
Parameter name: msD5-AssignedAuthNPolicy
at line:1 char:1
+ get-aduser -identity zschaffner -properties *
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ Category Info: InvalidArgument: (zschaffner:ADUser) [Get-ADUser], ArgumentException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId: ActiveDirectoryCmdlet:system.argumentException,microsoft.activedirectory.management.commands.getuser

Any ideas on why this is happening?

I'm not sure anyone's really prepared to help With PowerShell 4.0 or Windows 8.1, yet – I mean, they're still very much not-ready-for-production at this stage. I'm not even certain if that Windows 8 RSAT tools will be supported on 8.1, or if they'll issue a new RSAT for it.

There was a new version for the RSAT tools download for the 8.1 preview. I may post over on TechNet as well. May be helpful to Microsoft in identifying any issues with the preview release. If someone here has any ideas it would be much appreciated.

Definitely in terms of letting MS know – even submitting a bug on Connect. I know they don't really scan these forums.
