Detailed Description

The Remove-SCOMLocation cmdlet removes the association of a location with an agent-managed computer, management server, or resource pool, or it deletes a location. To remove an association, specify agent-managed computers, management servers, or resource pools. To delete a location, specify the location by using the Get-SCOMLocation cmdlet.

You can change a location display name, a latitude, or a longitude by using the Update-SCOMLocation cmdlet.

By default, this cmdlet uses the active persistent connection to a management group. Use the SCSession parameter to specify a different persistent connection. You can create a temporary connection to a management group by using the ComputerName and Credential parameters. For more information, type Get-Help about_OpsMgr_Connections.

Examples

Example 1: Delete a location

This example deletes a location that has the display name Seattle, WA. The first command gets the location object that has the display name Seattle, WA, and then stores the object in the $Location variable.

The second command deletes the location object stored in the $Location variable.


PS C:\> $Location = Get-SCOMLocation -DisplayName "Seattle, WA"
PS C:\> Remove-SCOMLocation -Location $Location

Example 2: Remove an agent-managed computer from a location

This example removes an agent-managed computer named Server73.Contoso.com from its location. The first command gets the agent object for the computer named Server73.Contoso.com and then stores the object in the $Agent variable.

The second command removes the location association from the agent-managed computer object stored in the $Agent variable. This command does not delete the location itself.


PS C:\> $Agent = Get-SCOMAgent –Name "Server73.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Remove-SCOMLocation -Agent $Agent

Example 3: Remove a management server from a location

This example removes a management server from its location. The first command gets the management server object named MgmtServer01.Contoso.com, and then stores the object in the $MgmtServer variable.

The second command removes the location association from the management server object stored in the $MgmtServer variable. This command does not delete the location itself.


PS C:\> $MgmtServer = Get-SCOMManagementServer –Name "MgmtServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Remove-SCOMLocation -ManagementServer $MgmtServer

Example 4: Remove a resource pool from a location

This example removes a resource pool named Notifications Resource Pool from its location. The first command gets the resource pool object for a resource pool named Notifications Resource Pool, and then stores the object in the $Pool variable.

The second command removes the location association from the resource pool object stored in the $Pool variable. This command does not delete the location itself.


PS C:\> $Pool = Get-SCOMResourcePool –Name "Notifications Resource Pool"
PS C:\> Remove-SCOMLocation -Pool $Pool
