SCOM may be the chattiest shitsoftware I've used. It also has nothing to do with what I'm trying to accomplish.. Did you mean SCCM? Because that's what I'm using to push the script out to all the servers.. What can SCOM and its heartbeat monitor/mother role do for me here?
Powershell is fantastic and is absolutely necessary in the MS lineup - especially 2012...
What is the easier route I should be taking to install the windows feature (snmp services) and then set the community string and host? Not a GPO... I can only set the GPO to customize the hosts and strings - I can't install it.
SCOM is chatty as shit unless you configure everything correctly. You can't just install management packs and expect it to work the way you want it to. SNMP isn't going to be nearly as flexible as SCOM. You can even configure SCOM to take corrective actions when an alert is triggered. Log files filling up? Configure SCOM to delete them.
Powershell is awesome. Confirmed.
From looking at your Powershell script, it doesn't seem like it would work if SNMP wasn't already installed.
