Detailed Description

The Uninstall-SCOMAgent cmdlet uninstalls agents from agent-managed computers. Before you uninstall an agent, you must remove the Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) agent assignments from the management group. You can use the Remove-SCOMADAgentAssignment cmdet to remove AD DS agent assignments from the management group.

Parameters

-ActionAccount<PSCredential>

Specifies a PSCredential object. This parameter specifies the credentials that Operations Manager uses to run the deployment task. If you do not specify this parameter or you specify a null value, Operations Manager uses the default action account of the management server for the agent.

Examples

Example 1: Uninstall an agent

The first command gets the Operations Manager agent object named server01.contoso.com and passes it to the Uninstall-SCOMAgent cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The second command uninstalls the agent named server01.contoso.com.


PS C:\> Get-SCOMAgent -DNSHostName "server01.contoso.com" | Uninstall-SCOMAgent

Example 2: Uninstall an agent by using an object variable

This example uninstalls the Operations Manager agent on an agent-managed computer.

The first command gets the agent-managed computer object named server01.contoso.com and stores the object in the $Agent variable.

The second command uninstalls the agent stored in $Agent.


PS C:\> $Agent = Get-SCOMAgent -DNSHostName "server01.contoso.com"
PS C:\> Uninstall-SCOMAgent -Agent $Agent

Example 3: Uninstall an agent by using an action account

This example uninstalls the Operations Manager agent on an agent-managed computer after the user enters the credentials that Operations Manager requires to uninstall the agent.

The first command gets the agent object named server01.contoso.com and stores the object in the $Agent variable.

The second command prompts the user to enter the credentials that Operations Manager uses to uninstall an agent. The command then uninstalls the agent stored in $Agent.


PS C:\> $Agent = Get-SCOMAgent -DNSHostName "server01.contoso.com"
PS C:\> Uninstall-SCOMAgent -Agent $Agent -ActionAccount (Get-Credential)
