Detailed Description

The Set-SCOMLocation cmdlet associates one or more agent-managed computers, management servers, or resource pools with a location. This cmdlet removes a current association, if one exists. The Web Application Availability Monitoring Summary Map Dashboard displays state information for agents, management servers, and resource pools associated with a location.

You can remove an association by using the Remove-SCOMLocation cmdlet. You can create a location by using the New-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: Associate an agent with a location

This example associates an agent-managed computer named Sever01.Contoso.com with the location Seattle, WA. The first command gets the location object that has the display name of Seattle, WA, and then stores the object in the $Location variable.

The second command gets the agent object named Server01.Contoso.com, and then stores the object in the $Agent variable.

The third command associates the location stored in the $Location variable with the agent-managed computer stored in the $Agent variable. If you previously associated this agent-managed computer with a location, the command removes that association.


PS C:\> $Location = Get-SCOMLocation -DisplayName "Seattle, WA"
PS C:\> $Agent = Get-SCOMAgent –Name "Server01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Set-SCOMLocation –Location $Location –Agent $Agent

Example 2: Associate a management server with a location

This example associates a management server named MgmtServer01.Contoso.com with the location New York, NY. The first command gets the location object that has the display name of New York, NY, and then stores the object in the $Location variable.

The second command gets the management server object named MgmtServer01.Contoso.com, and stores the object in the $MgmtServer variable.

The third command associates the location stored in the $Location variable with the management server stored in the $MgmtServer variable. If you previously associated this management server with a location, the command removes that association.


PS C:\> $Location = Get-SCOMLocation –DisplayName "New York, NY"
PS C:\> $MgmtServer = Get-SCOMManagementServer –Name "MgmtServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Set-SCOMLocation –Location $Location –ManagementServer $MgmtServer

Example 3: Associate a resource pool to a location

This example associates a resource pool named Notifications Resource Pool with the location Paris, FR. The first command gets the location object that has the display name Paris, FR, and then stores the object in the $Location variable.

The second command gets the resource pool named Notifications Resource Pool, and then stores the object in the $Pool variable.

The third command associates the location stored in the $Location variable with the resource pool stored in the $Pool variable. If you previously associated the resource pool with a location, the command removes that association.


PS C:\> $Location = Get-SCOMLocation –DisplayName "Paris, FR"
PS C:\> $Pool = Get-SCOMResourcePool –Name "Notifications Resource Pool"
PS C:\> Set-SCOMLocation –Location $Location –Pool $Pool
