Invoke-AzVMRunCommand log output

While working with the Invoke-AzVmRunCommand cmdlet, I encountered a problem, receiving the following error:

Invoke-AzVMRunCommand : Long running operation failed with status 'Failed'. Additional Info:'VM has reported a failure w
hen processing extension 'RunCommandWindows'. Error message: "Finished executing command".'

I’m attempting to push a DSC configuration into a VM and run it, and although the PowerShell runs successful when run from inside the VM, I still see this error.

I came across a github issue with a helpful tip: the log output of Invoke-AzVmRunCommand can be viewed from this path:

C:\Packages\Plugins\Microsoft.CPlat.Core.RunCommandWindows\<version>\Status

This helped me determine what the problem was and how to solve it.
