PowerShell Command to Approve SCOM Agents Listed in a Text File


My customer has a lot of manually installed SCOM Agents that have not yet been approved in the console, and wanted a quick way to approve only the ones that are listed in a text file.

The following PowerShell command can take care of this pretty easily (modify the C:\Servers.txt path as needed). Also, be sure that the servers are in FQDN format in the text file (Server.Domain.com).

Foreach ($Computer in (Get-Content C:\Servers.txt)) {Get-SCOMPendingManagement | where {$_.AgentPendingActionType -eq "ManualApproval" -and $_.AgentName -eq $Computer}| Approve-SCOMPendingManagement}
