Description

The Set-SCOMParentManagementServer cmdlet modifies the primary and failover management servers for an agent or gateway management server. In System Center 2016 - Operations Manager, primary and failover management servers provide redundancy for agents and gateway management servers.

This cmdlet requires an agent object or a gateway management server object, and a management server object. For information about how to get an agent object, type Get-Help Get-SCAgent. For information about how to get a gateway management server object, type "Get-Help Get-SCOMGatewayManagementServer".

This cmdlet cannot modify both the primary server and the failover management server in the same command.

Examples

Example 1: Set the primary and failover management servers

PS C:\>$PrimaryMgmtServer = Get-SCManagementServer -Name "MgmtServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $FailoverMgmtServer = Get-SCManagementServer -Name "MgmtServer02.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> "Server01.Contoso.com" | Get-SCAgent | Set-SCOMParentManagementServer -PrimaryServer $PrimaryMgmtServer -Passthru
PS C:\> "Server01.Contoso.com" | Get-SCAgent | Set-SCOMParentManagementServer -FailoverServer $FailoverMgmtServer -Passthru

This example sets the primary and failover parent management server.

The first two commands use the Get-SCManagementServer cmdlet to get a management server to set as the agent's primary management server, and a management server to set as the agent's failover management server. The commands store the objects in the $PrimaryMgmtServer, and $FailoverMgmtServer variables, respectively.

The third command uses the Get-SCAgent cmdlet to get the agent named Server01.Contoso.com and passes the result to the Set-SCOMParentManagementServer cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The command sets the primary management server specified in the $PrimaryMgmtServer variable. It then uses the PassThru parameter to generate an object. Without the PassThru parameter, Set-SCOMParentManagementServer does not generate any output.

The fourth command, in a manner similar to the third command, sets the failover management server specified in the $FailoverMgmtServer variable.

Example 2: Set the gateway primary server and failover server

PS C:\>$PrimaryMgmtServer = Get-SCManagementServer -name "MgmtServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $FailoverMgmtServer = Get-SCManagementServer -Name "MgmtServer02.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> "GatewayMgmtServer01.Contoso.com" | Get-SCOMGatewayManagementServer | Set-SCOMParentManagementServer -PrimaryServer $PrimaryMgmtServer 
PS C:\> "GatewayMgmtServer01.Contoso.com" | Get-SCOMGatewayManagementServer | Set-SCOMParentManagementServer -FailoverServer $FailoverMgmtServer

This example sets the gateway, primary, and failover parent management servers.

The first two commands use the Get-SCManagementServer cmdlet to get a management server to set as the gateway server's primary management server, and a management server to set as the gateway server's failover management server. The commands store the objects in the $PrimaryMgmtServer, and $FailoverMgmtServer variables, respectively.

The third command uses the Get-SCOMGatewayManagementServer cmdlet to get the gateway management server named GatewayMgmtServer01.Contoso.com and pipes the result to the Set-SCOMParentManagementServer cmdlet to set the primary management server specified in the $PrimaryMgmtServer variables for the gateway management server.

The fourth command uses the Get-SCOMGatewayManagementServer cmdlet to get the gateway management server named GatewayMgmtServer01.Contoso.com and pipes the result to the Set-SCOMParentManagementServer cmdlet to set the failover management server specified in the $FailoverMgmtServer variable for the gateway management server.

Example 3: Set the primary management server

PS C:\>Set-SCOMParentManagementServer -Agent (Get-SCAgent -Name "Server01.Contoso.com") -PrimaryServer (Get-SCManagementServer -Name "MgmtServer01.Contoso.com")

This example sets the primary management server for the specified agent.

The commands in parentheses, which are executed first, get the agent named Server01, and the management server named MgmtServer01. The cmdlet then passes the results of the commands in parentheses to the Set-SCOMParentManagementServer cmdlet, which then sets the primary server for the agent.
