Powershell Error - Can't multithread to Connect-HPOA or Connect-HPBIOS

This is a cross post in hopes of getting more exposure:

Hello,
 
PLEASE NOTE:  CONNECT-HPEBIOS (released 10/2017) fixes the issue below.  CONNECT-HPOA STILL HAS THIS ISSUE.


I have a CSV that i'm importing with the fields IP, Username, Password to connect to a large amount of HP systems to set BIOS settings.  It's saying that it's having an error converting my PSOjects from the CSV to strings.

Does anyone have this issue or a workaround?  The recent release of HPEBIOSCmdlets fixed the connect-hpbios issue, but the issue still persists for the HPOACmdlets...

Connect-HPOA : Invalid input: Unable to cast object of type 'System.Management.Automation.PSObject' to type 'System.String'.
