Gets the agent-managed computers in a management group.

Syntax

Get-SCOMAgent [-ManagementServer] <ManagementServer> [-ComputerName <String[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-SCSession <Connection[]>] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-SCOMAgent [-DNSHostName] <String[]> [-ComputerName <String[]>] [-Credential <PSCredential>]
 [-SCSession <Connection[]>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-SCOMAgent cmdlet gets the agent-managed computers in a management group. You can specify the DNSHostName parameter to get the agent-managed computers on a Domain Name System (DNS) host, or you can specify the ManagementServer parameter to get all the child agent-managed computers for a primary management server.

Examples

Example 1: Get all agents in the management group

PS C:\>Get-SCOMAgent -ComputerName "Server01.Contoso.Com"

This command establishes a temporary connection with the computer named Server01 and gets all agents in the management group.

Example 2: Get the agents managed by a management server

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

This example gets agent-managed computers that are managed by a management server.

The first command gets the management server object named MgmtServer01.Contoso.com and stores the object in the $MgmtServer variable.

The second command gets the agents that are managed by the management server stored in $MgmtServer.

Example 3: Get agents in a management group by using the agent name

PS C:\>Get-SCOMAgent -DNSHostName "server01.contoso.com", "Server02*", "*.Contoso.com"

This command gets agents that are named server01.contoso.com, that have a name that begins with Server02, and that are in the Contoso.com domain.

Example 4: Get all agents in a domain

PS C:\>Get-SCOMAgent -DNSHostName "*.Contoso.com" -ComputerName "Server01.Contoso.com"

This command establishes a temporary connection with the computer named Server01.Contoso.com and gets all agents in the Contoso.com domain.
