Example 1: Enable a monitor

This example enables an Operations Manager monitor.

The first command uses the Get-SCOMManagementPack cmdlet to get a management pack object, and it stores the result in the variable named $MP.

The second command uses the Get-SCOMClass cmdlet to get a class object, and it stores the result in the variable named $Class.

The third command uses the Get-SCOMMonitor cmdlet to get a monitor object, and it stores the result in the variable named $Monitor.

The fourth command uses the Enable-SCOMMonitor cmdlet to enable the monitor by using the Enforce parameter.


PS C:\> $MP = Get-SCOMManagementPack -Displayname "My SQL MP Customization" | where {$_.Sealed -eq $False}
PS C:\> $Class = Get-SCOMClass -DisplayName "SQL DB Engine"
PS C:\> $Monitor = Get-SCOMMonitor -DisplayName "*memory*"
PS C:\> Enable-SCOMMonitor -Class $Class -ManagementPack $MP -Monitor $Monitor -Enforce
