Adds a new entry to the core.supported_collector_types view in the management data warehouse database. The procedure must be executed in the context of the management data warehouse database.
Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version).
The following example adds the Generic T-SQL Query collector type to the core.supported_collector_types view. By default, the Generic T-SQL Query collector type already exists. Therefore, if you run this code on a default installation, you will receive a message that the collector type already exists.
This code would run successfully if you had removed the Generic T-SQL Query collector type by using the core.sp_remove_collector_type stored procedure, and then wanted to re-add it as a registered collector type that can upload data to the management data warehouse.
USE <management_data_warehouse>; GO DECLARE @RC int; DECLARE @collector_type_uid uniqueidentifier; SELECT @collector_type_uid = (SELECT collector_type_uid FROM msdb.dbo.syscollector_collector_types WHERE name = N'Generic T-SQL Query Collector Type'); EXECUTE @RC = core.sp_add_collector_type @collector_type_uid;
