Import-SCSMManagementPack

Import-SCSMManagementPack

Specifies the credentials to use when you connect to the server on which the Service Manager SDK Service is running. The provided user account must have access to that server. The default value for this parameter is the user account of the current context.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Import-SCSMManagementPack [-Fullname] <String[]> [-ComputerName <String> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-PassThru] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The classes managed by Service Manager must be defined in a management pack. Management packs consist of an XML manifest that defines metadata about objects and references to resources that the objects use. An unsealed management pack is an .xml file that can be modified, and a sealed management pack is an .mp file that cannot be modified. Sample management packs can be found in [Service Manager installation folder]\Microsoft System Center\Service Manager 2010\.
The Service Manager server into which the management pack is being imported will try to validate the management pack before importing it. If the management pack contains XML code that is not valid, the management pack will not be imported, and an error will be returned.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String>

Specifies the name of the computer on which the Service Manager SDK Service is running. The default value is "localhost". The user account that is defined in the Credential parameter must have access rights to the specified computer.
