ERROR: "You cannot call a method on a null-valued expression."

May 1, 2014 at 3:15 PM
When running this command:

.\Get-SqlServerInventoryToClixml.ps1 -ComputerName "######-DB1" -IncludeDatabaseInformation -IncludeDatabaseObjectPermissions -IncluseDatabaseSystemObjects -LoggingPreference Standard

I get a error in the log as shown below:

2014-04-30 15:31:42.2369 ? Beginning SQL Service discovery scan
2014-04-30 15:31:42.3774 ? Scanning MyServer.LOCAL at IP address 172.16.###.# for SQL Services [Device 1 of 1]

2014-04-30 15:31:42.9390 ? SQL Server service discovery complete

I really don't have a clue as to where to start to address this issue. Any suggestions?
