Description

The Add-SCVMMManagedComputer cmdlet adds a managed computer to Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).

Examples

Example 1: Add a new SPF server into VMM as a managed computer

PS C:\> $RunAsAccount = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "RunAsAcct01"
PS C:\> Add-SCVMMManagedComputer -ComputerName "SPF.Contoso.com" -Description "SPF" -Credential $RunAsAccount
