      [-SCSession <Connection[]>]

Description

The Remove-SCOMTierConnector cmdlet removes a connector from a tiered management group. A tiered management group is part of a connected management group that has peer-to-peer connections between its members and that shares data in a single System Center 2016 - Operations Manager console. Connectors communicate monitoring information between systems in a tiered management group. Removing a connector from a tier stops the tier from transmitting monitoring information to the connector.

Examples

Example 1: Remove connectors from a management group

PS C:\>$Tier = Get-SCOMTieredManagementGroup | Select-Object -First 1
PS C:\> Get-SCOMTierConnector -Tier $Tier | Remove-SCOMTierConnector -Tier $Tier

This example clears all connectors from a tiered management group.

The first command uses the Get-SCOMTieredManagementGroup cmdlet to get tiered management groups from the server, and passes them to the Select-Object cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The Select-Object cmdlet selects the first tiered management group object, and stores that object in the $Tier variable. For more information, type Get-Help Select-Object.

The second command gets the connectors from the tiered management group in the $Tier variable. It then passes these connectors to the Remove-SCOMTierConnector cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The cmdlet removes the connectors from the tiered management group in $Tier.

Optional Parameters

-ComputerName

Specifies an array that contains the name of the computer with which to establish a connection. Valid formats include a NetBIOS name, an IP address, or a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). To specify the local computer, specify the computer name, localhost, or a dot (.).

The computer must run the System Center Data Access service.

If you do not specify this parameter, the default is the computer for the current management group connection.

-Credential

Specifies the user account under which the management group connection runs. Specify a PSCredential object, such as one that the Get-Credential cmdlet returns, for this parameter. For more information about credential objects, type Get-Help Get-Credential.

If you specify a computer in the ComputerName parameter, use an account that has access to that computer. The default is the current user.

Type:PSCredential
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-SCSession

Specifies an array of management group connection objects that contains a connection to a management server. To get management group connection objects, specify the Get-SCOMManagementGroupConnection cmdlet. If you do not specify a value for this parameter, the default is the current management group connection.
