Description

The Disable-SCOMDiscovery cmdlet disables System Center 2016 - Operations Manager discoveries. The cmdlet creates and saves overrides for specified discoveries that disable those discoveries.

Specify groups, instances, or classes, along with the discoveries to disable. The cmdlet saves overrides to a specified unsealed management pack.

Examples

Example 1: Disable discoveries for a class

PS C:\>$MP = Get-SCOMManagementPack -displayname "My SQL MP Customization" | Where-Object {$_.Sealed -eq $False}
PS C:\> $Class = Get-SCOMClass -DisplayName "SQL DB Engine"
PS C:\> $Discovery = Get-SCOMDiscovery -DisplayName *rule*
PS C:\> Disable-SCOMDiscovery -Class $Class -Discovery $Discovery -ManagementPack $MP

This example disables discoveries for a specified class. The Disable-SCOMDiscovery cmdlet saves an override in a specified management pack.

The first command uses the Get-SCOMManagementPack cmdlet to get management pack objects that have the specified display name, and passes them to the Where-Object cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. That cmdlet drops any sealed management packs. For more information, type Get-Help Where-Object. The command stores all unsealed management packs in the $MP variable.

The second command uses the Get-SCOMClass cmdlet to get classes that have the specified display name, and then stores them in the $Class variable.

The third command uses the Get-SCOMDiscovery cmdlet to get discovery objects that have display names that contain the string rule, and then stores them in the $Discovery variable.

The fourth command disables the discoveries represented by the objects stored in the $Discovery variable. The command specifies the class object stored in the $Class variable. The cmdlet saves the override in the management pack represented by the object in the $MP variable. The command uses the Enforce parameter; therefore the cmdlet sets the Enforce property to $True.

Parameters

-Class

Specifies an array of management pack class objects. To obtain a class object, use the Get-SCOMClass cmdlet. The cmdlet disables discoveries for these classes.

Type:ManagementPackClass[]
Required:True
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Discovery

Specifies an array of ManagementPackDiscovery objects. To obtain a ManagementPackDiscovery object, use the Get-SCOMDiscovery cmdlet.

Type:ManagementPackDiscovery[]
Required:True
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Enforce

Indicates that the cmdlet sets the Enforce property to $True on the override.

Type:SwitchParameter
Required:False
Position:3
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False

Specifies an array of monitoring objects that represent groups. To obtain a group, use the Get-SCOMGroup cmdlet. The cmdlet disables discoveries for these groups.

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

Accept wildcard characters:False
-ManagementPack

Specifies one or more management pack objects. To obtain a management pack object, use the Get-SCOMManagementPack cmdlet. The cmdlet saves overrides into the specified management pack.
