New-SCOMLocation

Creates a location to which you can assign agent-managed computers, management servers, or resource pools.

Syntax

Parameter Set: FromDisplayName
New-SCOMLocation [-DisplayName] <String> -Latitude <String> -Longitude <String> [-ComputerName <String[]> ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-SCSession <Connection[]> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-SCOMLocation cmdlet creates a location. You can associate agent-managed computers, management servers, or resource pools with a location by using the Set-SCOMLocation cmdlet. The Web Application Availability Monitoring Summary Map Dashboard displays the items that you associate with a location.

Provide a display name, a latitude, and a longitude for your location. Use the Update-SCOMLocation cmdlet to make changes to a location, or use the Remove-SCOMLocation to remove a location.

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.
