Description

The Get-SCOMLocation cmdlet gets locations. Specify locations to get by display name or ID, or by specifying associated agents, management servers, or resource pools.

You can create a location by using the New-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: Get a location by display name

PS C:\>Get-SCOMLocation -DisplayName "Seattle, WA"

This command gets the location that has the display name Seattle, WA.

Example 2: Get the location of an agent-managed computer

PS C:\>$Agent = Get-SCOMAgent -Name "Server01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Get-SCOMLocation -Agent $Agent

This example gets a location for an agent-managed computer. The first command gets the agent object for an agent-managed computer named Server01.Contoso.com and then stores the object in the $Agent variable.

The second command gets the location for the agent object stored in the $Agent variable.

Example 3: Get the location of a management server

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

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

The second command gets the location for the management server object stored in the $MgmtSvr variable.

Example 4: Get the location of a resource pool

PS C:\>$Pool = Get-SCOMResourcePool -Name "Pool01"
PS C:\> Get-SCOMLocation -Pool $Pool

This example gets a location for the resource pool named Pool01. The first command gets the resource pool object for the resource pool named Pool01 and stores the object in the $Pool variable.

The second command gets the location for the pool stored in the $Pool variable.

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

Required:False
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
-DisplayName

Specifies an array of display names. Values for this parameter depend on which localized management packs you import and the locale of the user that runs Windows PowerShell.
