suddenly powershell stopped working while deploying via build

ACDBA 1 Reputation point

We were having a build which used to deploy ssas though 'Invoke-ASCmd' . This build was working fine with out issues.All of us sudden it stopped working. But when we manually execute ps1 it works. There is no change in Group policy. required modudle sqlserver is already in place. what could be the reason. there are other ps1 scripts on the same build is working fine.But they dont have asccmd. where should i check?

    The error message means the module sqlserver was not imported. Try adding Import-Module sqlserver to the beginning of the script and see if it works. If not, run Get-Module -Name sqlserver | select path and make sure the user who ran the script can access the path. The path is %ProgramFiles%\WindowsPowerShell\Modules by default.
