Set-SCSMManagementGroupConnection

Sets the active management group connection.

Syntax

Set-SCSMManagementGroupConnection
   [-Connection] <Connection>
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Set-SCSMManagementGroupConnection cmdlet sets the specified connection as the active connection. The active connection is the connection that is implicitly used when you run a Get cmdlet without specifying both a ComputerName parameter and a Credential parameter, or a SCSession parameter. Only one connection can be active at any time. By default, the active connection is the last connection that was created by using the New-SCSMManagementGroupConnection cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Activate a management group connection

PS C:\>Get-SCManagementGroupConnection
ManagementServerName    ManagementGroupName                 Domain          UserName             IsActive
--------------------    -------------------                 ------          --------             --------
localhost               MyManagementGroup                                                        False


PS C:\>Get-SCSMManagementGroupConnection | Set-SCSMManagementGroupConnection
PS C:\>Get-SCSMManagementGroupConnection
ManagementServerName    ManagementGroupName                 Domain          UserName             IsActive
--------------------    -------------------                 ------          --------             --------
localhost               MyManagementGroup                                                        True

These commands activate a management group connection. The first command displays the IsActive state of the connection (False), and then the second command activates the connection. The final command verifies the activation by displaying the IsActive state of the connection, which has now changed to True.
