SCOM Management Pack backup


nobackup

Ever wish you had a backup of your MP?

 

It’s quite easybutton

 

Tailor to your requirements, but you can run this as a scheduled task, Orchestrator job, etc.

I would recommend running the script on a server with the Operations Manager shell (or at least add the Operations Manager snapIn to a non SCOM server)

NOTE This will unseal sealed management packs

 

# Backup Management packs to C drive

# Set up your path, my example is monadmin\backup

$date = Get-Date -UFormat “%Y-%m-%d”

c:

cd monadmin\backup

new-item -itemtype directory -path c:\monadmin\backup\$date

cd $date

# Variants accepted

# Examples – begins with OR, or Company Name, or contains Lab

Get-SCOMManagementPack -Name OR* | Export-SCOMManagementPack -Path “C:\monadmin\backup\$date”

Get-SCOMManagementPack -Name <CompanyName>* | Export-SCOMManagementPack -Path “C:\monadmin\backup\$date”

Get-SCOMManagementPack -Name *Lab* | Export-SCOMManagementPack -Path “C:\monadmin\backup\$date”

 

# Backup Management packs to E drive

# Set up your path, this example is monadmin\backup

$date = Get-Date -UFormat “%Y-%m-%d”

E:

cd monadmin\backup

new-item -itemtype directory -path e:\monadmin\backup\$date

cd $date

Get-SCOMManagementPack -Name OR* | Export-SCOMManagementPack -Path “E:\monadmin\backup\$date”

Get-SCOMManagementPack -Name *Lab* | Export-SCOMManagementPack -Path “E:\monadmin\backup\$date”
