When i try to run this script I get the following error when executing "$searchConfigurationPortability = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Search.Portability.SearchConfigurationPortability($clientContext)" :

New-Object : Cannot find an overload for "SearchConfigurationPortability" and the argument count: "1".
At D:\Install\CDMS_Release_1.2_20150421_084744\SetUpManagedProperties.ps1:33 char:35

  • $searchConfigurationPortability = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Search. ...
  • - CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (:) [New-Object], MethodException
    - FullyQualifiedErrorId : ConstructorInvokedThrowException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.NewObjectCommand

Do you know what to do in this case?

You are using mixed versions of the CSOM library dlls. Make sure they are the same version 15 vs 16, etc.
