<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

Examples

Example 1: Get all new alerts

This command gets all alerts that have a resolution state of zero (new alerts).


PS C:\> Get-SCOMAlert -ResolutionState 0

Example 2: Get alerts by using a custom field

This command gets all alerts that have a value of TestServer in the CustomField1 property.


PS C:\> Get-SCOMAlert | where {$_.CustomField1 -eq "TestServer"}

Example 3: Get alerts and suppress error messages

This example gets alerts and suppresses error messages for the class instances that do not match the criteria of the command.

The first command stores the value of the $ErrorActionPreference variable in the $OrigionalErrorAction variable.

The second command sets the value of the $ErrorActionPreference variable to SilentlyContinue. By setting the value of the $ErrorActionPreference variable to SilentlyContinue, class instances that do not have matching task results continue to run and not show an error.

The third command gets all classes with health in their name and passes the class objects to the Get-SCOMClassInstance cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The Get-SCOMClassInstance gets the class instances for each class object and passes each of the class instance objects to the Get-SCOMAlert cmdlet. The Get-SCOMAlert cmdlet returns the alerts that have a resolution state from 5 through 200, inclusive, for each class instance.

The fourth command sets the value for the $ErrorActionPreference variable back to the value stored in the $OrigionalErrorAction variable.


PS C:\> $OriginalErrorAction = $ErrorActionPreference
PS C:\> $ErrorActionPreference = "SilentlyContinue"
PS C:\> Get-SCOMClass -Name "*health*" | Get-SCOMClassInstance | Get-SCOMAlert -ResolutionState (5..200)
PS C:\> $ErrorActionPreference = $OriginalErrorAction

Example 4: Get an alert by using the ID

This command gets the alert that has the Id 7413b06b-a95b-4ae3-98f2-dac9ff76dabd.


PS C:\> Get-SCOMAlert -Id 7413b06b-a95b-4ae3-98f2-dac9ff76dabd
