Active Directory commands not running from vRO PowerShell Host

Hi,

I am trying to fetch some details from my Active Directory(AD) in vRO by running .ps1 scripts. The commands I want to execute in vRO are running in my PowerShell Host(if run directly on PowerShell ISE). But, when I'm running the same command in "Invoke an external script" workflow or "Invoke a PowerShell script" workflow, available in vRO library, an error is occurring. Please help me with this error, all my work has gotten bottle-necked at this error.
Below is the error mentioned.

The issue comes from the PS script. This is not a powershell plug-in error. You may consider using AD plug-in to query your AD. This should simplify your case.
