Detailed Description

The Import-SCSMManagementPack cmdlet imports management packs.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Configuration.ManagementPack

    You can pipe a management pack to the ManagementPack parameter of the Import-SCSMManagementPack cmdlet.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Configuration.ManagementPack


    An object that represents the management pack. It is available only when you use the -PassThru parameter.


Notes

  • If you specify multiple management packs, the order in which those management packs are imported will satisfy management pack interdependencies. As a result, management packs might be imported in an order that differs from the order that is provided at the command prompt.
