Description

The Update-SCOMRunAsAccount cmdlet updates the credentials of an System Center 2016 - Operations Manager Run As account. A Run As account gives users the ability to specify the necessary permissions for use with rules, tasks, monitors, and discoveries targeted to specific computers on an as-needed basis.

This cmdlet does not support SCX (cross-platform) accounts or Simple Network Management Protocol version 3 (SNMPv3) accounts.

Examples

Example 1: Update a Windows Run As account

PS C:\>$WindowsAccount = Get-SCOMRunAsAccount -Name "Domain Admin"
PS C:\> $WindowsAccount | Update-SCOMRunAsAccount -RunAsCredential (Get-Credential)

This example updates a Windows Run As account.

The first command gets the Run As account object named Domain Admin and stores the object in the $WindowsAccount variable.

The second command passes the Run As account stored in the $WindowsAccount variable to the Update-SCOMRunAsAccount cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. That cmdlet updates the credentials for the account to the user name and password that the user provides by responding to the prompt from the Get-Credential cmdlet.

Example 2: Update an action Run As account

PS C:\>$UserName = "Contoso\SCOMActionAccount"
PS C:\> $Password = Read-Host -AsSecureString
PS C:\> $NewCred = new-object System.Management.Automation.PsCredential $UserName,$Password
PS C:\> Get-SCOMRunAsAccount -Name "SCOM Action Account" | Update-SCOMRunAsAccount -RunAsCredential $newCred

This example updates credentials for an action Run As account.

The first command creates a string that contains an action account name and stores the string in the $UserName variable.

The second command prompts the user to enter a string that represents the password. It then stores the user input as a secure string in the $Password variable.

The third command creates a PSCredential object by using the name stored in the $UserName variable and the password stored in $Password. It then stores the PSCredential object in the $NewCred variable.

The last command gets the action account named SCOM Action Account. It then uses the pipeline operator to pass the account to the Update-SCOMRunAsAccount cmdlet, which updates the account with the credentials stored in the $NewCred variable.

Example 3: Update a Community String account

PS C:\>Get-SCOMRunAsAccount -Name "MyCommunityStringAccount" | Update-SCOMRunAsAccount -CommunityString (Read-Host -AsSecureString)

This command updates credentials for a Run As account that uses community string authentication for SNMP version 2. It gets the community string account named MyCommunityStringAccount and uses the pipeline operator to pass the account to the Update-SCOMRunAsAccount cmdlet. This cmdlet updates the community string with the value that the user enters in response to prompts from the Read-Host cmdlet. For more information, type Get-Help Read-Host.

Example 4: Update a Binary Authentication account

PS C:\>Get-SCOMRunAsAccount -Name "MyBinaryAccount" | Update-SCOMRunAsAccount -Path ".\data.txt"

This example gets the binary account object named MyBinaryAccount and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to the Update-SCOMRunAsAccount cmdlet. This cmdlet uses the Path parameter to indicate that it gets the new account data from the file named data.txt.

-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 started 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
