Yesterday, I was able to run some script upload and update MMS type columns via script.

Today, the same script unable to get hold of the taxonomy store. I can see the whole tree from any site collection (site setting > term store mgmt). Why then following ps not working? REALLY FRUSTRATED WITH SHAREPOINT LACK OF DOCUMENTATION.

$site = ""
$session = get-sptaxonomysession -site $site

if ($session.TermStores.Count > 0)
    $ts = $session.TermStores[0]
    Write-Host "Term Stores not found"
