Add-SCAdvisorAgent

Adds Windows-based computers or instance groups to the group of agents that report to the Advisor Connector.

Syntax

Add-SCAdvisorAgent [-InputObjects <PartialMonitoringObject[]>] [-ComputerName <String[]>]
 [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-SCSession <Connection[]>] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Add-SCAdvisorAgent cmdlet adds Windows-based computers or instance groups to the group of agents that report to the System Center Advisor Connector.

Examples

Example 1: Add Windows-based computers to the connector for the current management group

PS C:\>$WindowsComputers = Get-SCClass -Name "Microsoft.Windows.computer" | Get-SCOMClassInstance
PS C:\> Add-SCAdvisorAgent -InputObjects $WindowsComputers

The first command uses the Get-SCClass cmdlet to get all the Windows-based computers, and then passes them to the Get-SCOMClassInstance cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The command stores the instances of Windows-based computers in the $WindowsComputers variable.

The second command adds all the Windows-based computers that are stored in $WindowsComputers to the group of agents that report to the Advisor Connector.

Example 2: Add Windows computers to the connector for a specified computer

PS C:\>$WindowsComputers = Get-SCClass -Name Microsoft.Windows.computer | Get-SCOMClassInstance -ComputerName "Computer073"
PS C:\> Add-SCAdvisorAgent -InputObjects $WindowsComputers -ComputerName "Computer073"

The first command uses Get-SCClass to get all the Windows-based computers, and then passes them to Get-SCOMClassInstance by using the pipeline operator. The command connects to the computer Computer073, and then stores the instances of Windows-based computers in the $WindowsComputers variable.

The second command adds all the Windows-based computers that are stored in $WindowsComputers to the group of agents that report to the Advisor Connector.

Parameters

-InputObjects

Specifies an array of computer names to opt in to the Advisor Connector.

Type:PartialMonitoringObject[]
Required:False
Position:Named
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 (.).

The System Center Data Access service must be active on the computer. If you do not specify a computer, the cmdlet uses 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
-Credential

Specifies the user account under which the management group connection runs. Specify a PSCredential object, such as one that the Get-Credential cmdlet returns, for this parameter. For more information about credential objects, 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
-SCSession

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

If this parameter is not specified, 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
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter

Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
