Script to delete decommissioned servers in SCOM


This is a modified version of Tim McFadden's script. This script will take a text file containing the FQDNs of agents which need to be removed from SCOM. Note this process is for when a server has been decommissioned but was never removed from SCOM. If you are instead trying to remove the agent from a server that's still running, you should use Uninstall-SCOMAgent. Otherwise, they'll show up again under Pending Management.

Example usage: .\thisscript.ps1 -MS localhost -path "C:\temp\decommServers.txt"

Example output:
