2598128 - Powershell script executed from Data Services fails with error:impossible to access file - SAP Data Services 4.x


We are facing an issue with Data Services 4.2. We have a powershell script that access an Excel file within
the same Data Services server. When we execute the script in "CMD command" it works fine.
However when the script is executed from Data Services, it returns an error when trying to open the Excel file from powershell script that says "impossible to access file".
