Description

The Remove-SCOMLocation cmdlet removes the association of a location with an agent-managed computer, management server, or resource pool, or it deletes a location. To remove an association, specify agent-managed computers, management servers, or resource pools. To delete a location, specify the location by using the Get-SCOMLocation cmdlet.

You can change a location display name, a latitude, or a longitude by using the Update-SCOMLocation cmdlet.

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: Delete a location

PS C:\>$Location = Get-SCOMLocation -DisplayName "Seattle, WA"
PS C:\> Remove-SCOMLocation -Location $Location

This example deletes a location that has the display name Seattle, WA. The first command gets the location object that has the display name Seattle, WA, and then stores the object in the $Location variable.

The second command deletes the location object stored in the $Location variable.

Example 2: Remove an agent-managed computer from a location

PS C:\>$Agent = Get-SCOMAgent -Name "Server73.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Remove-SCOMLocation -Agent $Agent

This example removes an agent-managed computer named Server73.Contoso.com from its location. The first command gets the agent object for the computer named Server73.Contoso.com and then stores the object in the $Agent variable.

The second command removes the location association from the agent-managed computer object stored in the $Agent variable. This command does not delete the location itself.

Example 3: Remove a management server from a location

PS C:\>$MgmtServer = Get-SCOMManagementServer -Name "MgmtServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Remove-SCOMLocation -ManagementServer $MgmtServer

This example removes a management server from its location. The first command gets the management server object named MgmtServer01.Contoso.com, and then stores the object in the $MgmtServer variable.

The second command removes the location association from the management server object stored in the $MgmtServer variable. This command does not delete the location itself.

Example 4: Remove a resource pool from a location

PS C:\>$Pool = Get-SCOMResourcePool -Name "Notifications Resource Pool"
PS C:\> Remove-SCOMLocation -Pool $Pool

This example removes a resource pool named Notifications Resource Pool from its location. The first command gets the resource pool object for a resource pool named Notifications Resource Pool, and then stores the object in the $Pool variable.

The second command removes the location association from the resource pool object stored in the $Pool variable. This command does not delete the location itself.

Parameters

-Agent

Specifies an array of AgentManagedComputer objects. To obtain an AgentManagedComputer object, use the Get-SCOMAgent cmdlet.

Type:AgentManagedComputer[]
Required:True
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-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 (.).

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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
