DevOps Deployment Group script stuck on “Connecting to the server.”

Scenario:
I’m adding a machine to a Deployment Group in DevOps, I copied the script from DevOps page and pasted in Windows PowerShell ISE that I’m running as Administrator in the target machine.

Run the script, it starts showing the steps until it stops (no errors shown) at the step

Connecting to the server.

Solution:
Run the script using Windows PowerShell (Run as Administrator) rather than using Windows PowerShell ISE

Did my solution solve your problem? Leave a reply.
