Add-SCOMTierConnector

Adds a connector to a management group tier.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Add-SCOMTierConnector -Connector <MonitoringConnector> -Tier <TieredManagementGroup> [-ComputerName <String[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-PassThru] [-SCSession <Connection[]> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-SCOMTierConnector cmdlet adds a connector to a System Center 2012 – Operations Manager management group tier. Connectors communicate monitoring information between systems in a tiered management group.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String[]>

Specifies an array of names of computers. The cmdlet establishes temporary connections with management groups for these computers. Valid formats include a NetBIOS name, an IP address, or a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). To specify the local computer, specify the computer name, localhost, or a dot (.).

The computer must run the System Center Data Access service.

If you do not specify this parameter, the default is the computer for the current management group connection.

Examples

Example 1: Add a connector to a tiered management group

This example adds a connector to an existing tiered management group.

The first command gets tiered management groups from the server, and passes them to the Select-Object cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. That cmdlet selects the first tiered management group. For more information, type Get-Help Select-Object. The command stores the first tiered management group in the $Tier variable.

The second command adds a connector named MyProductConnector. The command then passes output to the Add-SCOMTierConnector cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. That cmdlet adds the connector to the tiered management group in the $Tier variable.


PS C:\> $Tier = Get-SCOMTieredManagementGroup | Select-Object -First 1
PS C:\> Add-SCOMConnector -Name MyProductConnector | Add-SCOMTierConnector -Tier $Tier
