Add-SCOMTierConnector

Adds a connector to a management group tier.

Syntax

Add-SCOMTierConnector [-ComputerName <String[]>] -Connector <MonitoringConnector> [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-PassThru] [-SCSession <Connection[]>] -Tier <TieredManagementGroup> [-Confirm] [-WhatIf]
 [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-SCOMTierConnector cmdlet adds a connector to a System Center 2016 - Operations Manager management group tier. Connectors communicate monitoring information between systems in a tiered management group.

Examples

Example 1: Add a connector to a tiered management group

PS C:\>$Tier = Get-SCOMTieredManagementGroup | Select-Object -First 1
PS C:\> Add-SCOMConnector -Name MyProductConnector | Add-SCOMTierConnector -Tier $Tier

This example adds a connector to an existing tiered management group.

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

The second command adds a connector named MyProductConnector. The command then passes output to the Add-SCOMTierConnector cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. That cmdlet adds the connector to the tiered management group in the $Tier variable.

Parameters

-ComputerName

Specifies an array of names of computers. The cmdlet establishes temporary connections with management groups for these computers. 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.

Type:String[]
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Connector

Specifies the System Center 2016 - Operations Manager connector.

Type:MonitoringConnector
Required:True
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Credential

Specifies a PSCredential object for the management group connection. To obtain a PSCredential object, use the Get-Credential cmdlet. For more information, 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
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Indicates that the cmdlet creates an object. This parameter allows you to use this cmdlet in a pipeline. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

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

Specifies an array of Connection objects. To get Connection objects, specify the Get-SCOMManagementGroupConnection cmdlet.

If you do not specify a value for this parameter, the cmdlet uses the active persistent connection to a management group. Use the SCSession parameter to specify a different persistent connection. You can create a temporary connection to a management group by using the ComputerName and Credential parameters. For more information, type Get-Help about_OpsMgr_Connections.

Type:Connection[]
Required:False
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Tier
