Hi Team,

I've done some research online, and haven't found a solution to the issue I'm seeing. We have a Targeted Release tenancy, and wanted to try out the Home Site feature following directions from Microsoft. 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/SharePoint/home-site

 

I have SharePoint Online Management Shell already installed, connected to my tenant, and executed the command: Set-SPOHomeSite -HomeSiteUrl MYSITEURL

 

Unfortunately, I receive the following error:

Set-SPOHomeSite : The term 'Set-SPOHomeSite' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

 

Any ideas why I would be receiving this error?

 

Thank you so much for your help!

 

Kind regards,

 

Alan Bryan

Are you sure you are using the last version of the PowerShell Management Shell? If you try any other SPO cmdlet, does it work?

@Juan Carlos González Martín 

Thank you for the reply. 

I uninstalled and re-installed the current version of SharePoint Online Management Shell: 16.0.20324.12000.

Unfortunately, Set-SPOHomeSite still does not work. I tried your recommendation to test any SPO cmdlet, and Set-SpoSite works without any issues. (Please see below).

 

Any ideas why it'd be doing this? Thanks so much for your help!
