How can I get rid of these warning? If these warning cannot be eliminated how can I suppress them?

For instance, the warnings happen at this line:

$sourceWebSite = Get-SPWeb -Limit All -Identity "SomeSite" -EA 0
$sourceLibrary = $sourceWebSite.Lists["Record Library"] 
$sourceView = $sourceLibrary.Views["Credentialing"]

enter image description here

    try this one "-WarningPreference SilentlyContinue" instead of -EA 0

Try by adding WarningAction:SilentlyContinue in the first line

  • thanks that did it: $sourceWebSite = Get-SPWeb -Limit All -Identity "SomeSite" -EA 0 -WA 0

  • Just a tip, you may want to leave ErrorAction alone, (remove -EA 0) in case you get an unexpected error.

  • Note that the correct format would be $WarningAction = 'SilentlyContinue' if you wanted to do it on another line. Aug 11, 2017 at 15:02
