How to create an opsgenie alert from powershell?

The command below:

start /d "c:\lamp" lamp createAlert --message "Destination Host Unreachable from [MBT_Storage]" --source [Name] --teams "Support" --priority "P2"

produces this error:

+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [Start-Process], ParameterBindingException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : PositionalParameterNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.StartProcessCommand

How can I run this command in powershell?


Thanks in advance
