Issue is solved, I found the bug. All Active directory users was created with all kind of signs which shouldn't be there. Our server provider created these users. Script is running normal now


For reference, we had the same issue but a different solution. Our Pa$$W&rds used both dollar signs and ampersands. We needed to change those in order to get it to work.

Finally, I highly recommend working on your XML input file using a good editor like Notepad++ or good old Visual Studio - this helps a ton, especially to highlight any errors. Be especially mindful of invalid characters such as $ & " in your passwords etc.! Many script blow-up errors can be attributed to illegal characters or syntax errors in the XML. Finally, once you've populated your XML file with your environment/server specifics and before you attempt to run the script, pass the XML through a validator like this.
