Syntax

New-SCOMResourcePool [-DisplayName] <String> [-Member] <ComputerHealthService[]> [-ComputerName <String[]>]
 [-Credential <PSCredential>] [-Description <String>] [-Observer <ComputerHealthService[]>]
 [-SCSession <Connection[]>] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-SCOMResourcePool cmdlet creates a resource pool in System Center 2016 - Operations Manager. A resource pool enables a collection of management servers to distribute the workload.

Examples

Example 1: Create a resource pool

PS C:\>New-SCOMResourcePool -DisplayName "Pool01" -Member (Get-SCOMManagementServer) -PassThru

This example creates a resource pool named Pool01 that contains all management servers.

The command in parentheses, which is executed first, uses the Get-SCOMmanagementServer cmdlet to get all management servers. The cmdlet then passes the results of the command in parentheses to the New-SCOMResourcePool cmdlet, which creates the resource pool and adds the management servers.

Note: Because the management servers are added to this resource pool manually, this resource pool will not have automatic membership enabled, and you must add all future members manually.
