Get-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting

Gets the database grooming settings for a management group.

Syntax

Get-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting [-ComputerName <String[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-SCSession <Connection[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting cmdlet gets the database grooming settings for a management group. Database grooming automatically removes unnecessary data from the System Center 2016 - Operations Manager database in order to maintain performance. Use the Set-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting cmdlet to make changes to grooming settings.

By default, this 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.

Examples

Example 1: Get database grooming settings for the current management group

PS C:\>Get-SCOMDatabaseGroomingSetting

This command gets database grooming settings. This command does not specify values for the ComputerName, Credential, or SCSession parameters; therefore, the command uses the active persistent connection to determine the management group.

Parameters

-ComputerName

Specifies an array of names of computers. The cmdlet establishes temporary connections with management groups for these computers. You can use NetBIOS names, IP addresses, or fully qualified domain names (FQDNs). To specify the local computer, type the computer name, localhost, or a dot (.).

The System Center Data Access service must be running on the computer. If you do not specify a computer, the cmdlet uses the computer for the current management group connection.
