Description

The Add-CMManagementPoint cmdlet adds a management point to Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. A management point is a System Center Configuration Manager site system role that provides policy and service information to clients and receives configuration data from clients.

Examples

Example 1: Add a management point

PS C:\>Add-CMManagementPoint -SiteSystemServerName "CMDEV-TEST02.TSQA.CONTOSO.COM" -SiteCode "CM2" -ClientConnectionType InternetAndIntranet -AllowDevice $True -GenerateAlert -SQLServerFqdnName "CMDEV-TEST02.TSQA.CONTOSO.COM" -SQLServerInstanceName "MSSQLServer" -DatabaseName "test" -UserName "TSQA\MPAdmin" -Verbose

This command adds a management point to a System Center Configuration Manager installation. The command specifies the following information about the management point:

- The new management point appears on the site system named CMDEV-TEST02.TSQA.CONTOSO.COM. This name is also the fully qualified domain name for the SQL Server instance named MSSQLServer.

  • The site has code CM2.
  • The management point accepts connections from internet and intranet clients and from portable devices.
  • The management point has the associated database name Test.
  • The management point uses the domain user account for the user named TSQA\MPAdmin.
  • The cmdlet displays all messages that the addition operation generates.
