Syntax

Parameter Set: FromManagementPackFile
Import-SCOMManagementPack [-Fullname] <String[]> [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: __AllParameterSets
Import-SCOMManagementPack [-ComputerName <String[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-PassThru] [-SCSession <Connection[]> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Import-SCOMManagementPack cmdlet imports System Center 2012 – Operations Manager management packs. You can export a management pack to an XML-formatted file by using the Export-SCOMManagementPack cmdlet.

Before the cmdlet imports a management pack, System Center 2012 – Operations Manager attempts to validate the management pack. If the management pack contains invalid XML, the cmdlet does not import the management pack and raises an error.

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.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String[]>

Specifies an array of names of computers. The cmdlet establishes temporary connections with management groups for these 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.
