Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Add-SCOMADAgentAssignment [-Domain] <String> [-PrimaryServer] <ManagementServer> [-LdapQuery] <String> [-ComputerName <String[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-Exclude <String[]> ] [-FailoverServer <ManagementServer[]> ] [-RunAsProfile <ManagementPackSecureReference> ] [-SCSession <Connection[]> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-SCOMADAgentAssignment cmdlet assigns one or more Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) agent-managed computers to the System Center 2012 – Operations Manager management group.

Before you use this cmdlet to assign agent-managed computers to the management group, use MOMADAdmin.exe to create an AD DS container for an Operations Manager management group in the domain of the computers.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String[]>

Specifies an array of names of computers. You can use NetBIOS names, IP addresses, or fully qualified domain names (FQDNs). To specify the local computer, type the computer name, localhost, or a dot (.).

The System Center Data Access service must be running on the computer. If you do not specify a computer, the cmdlet uses the computer for the current management group connection.

Examples

Example 1: Assign AD DS agent-managed computers to the management group

This example assigns an AD DS agent-managed computer to the management group.

The first command gets the management server object named DivMgmtSvr01.fabrikam.net, and stores the object in the $PrimaryServer variable.

The second command specifies an LDAP query that selects computers with names like SQLServer*.fabrikam.net, and stores the object in the $Ldap variable.

The third command assigns the AD DS agent-managed computers stored in $Ldap to the management group in the fabrikam.net domain. The command excludes the computer named SQLServer05.fabrikam.net from the management group.


PS C:\> $PrimaryServer = Get-SCOMManagementServer -Name "DivMgmtSvr01.fabrikam.net"
PS C:\> $Ldap = "(&amp;(sAMAccountType=805306369)(name=SQLServer*))"
PS C:\> Add-SCOMADAgentAssignment -Domain "fabrikam.net" -PrimaryServer $PrimaryServer -LdapQuery $Ldap -Exclude "SQLServer05.fabrikam.net"

Example 2: Set failovers for an AD DS agent assignment

This example assigns an AD DS agent-managed computer to the management group and sets the failovers for the agent.

The first command gets the management server object named DivMgmtSvr01.fabrikam.net, and stores the object in the $PrimaryServer variable.

The second command gets the management servers with a name like FabrikamSecondary*.fabrikam.net, and stores the objects in the $Failovers variable.

The third command gets the Runs As profile object named "Active Directory Based Agent Assignment Account" and stores the object in the $RunAs variable.

The fourth command specifies an LDAP query that selects computers with names like SQLServer*.fabrikam.net, and stores the result in the $Ldap variable.

The fifth command assigns the AD DS agent-managed computers stored in $Ldap to the management group in the fabrikam.net domain. The command specifies the primary management server stored in $PrimaryServer for the agent-managed computers. The command specifies the management servers stored in $Failovers as failovers for the agent-managed computers. The command specifies the Run As profile stored in $RunAs for the agent-managed computers.


PS C:\> $PrimaryServer = Get-SCOMManagementServer -Name "DivMgmtSvr01.fabrikam.net"
PS C:\> $Failovers = Get-SCOMManagementServer -Name "FabrikamSecondary*.fabrikam.net"
PS C:\> $RunAs = Get-SCOMRunAsProfile -Name "Active Directory Based Agent Assignment Account"
PS C:\> $Ldap = "(&amp;(sAMAccountType=805306369)(name=SQLServer*))"
PS C:\> Add-SCOMADAgentAssignment -Domain "fabrikam.net" -PrimaryServer $PrimaryServer -LdapQuery $Ldap -FailoverServer $Failovers -RunAsProfile $RunAs
