Parameter set cannot be resolved using the specified named parameters

When you try to run a script block with alternate credentials on a local or remote computer, you may get the following error message:

Parameter set cannot be resolved using the specified named parameters

In this case, the error is because -credential parameter without -computername parameter can’t be used.

Fix

To solve this issue, you must add the -computername parameter.
