Powershell is awesome. Confirmed.
From looking at your Powershell script, it doesn't seem like it would work if SNMP wasn't already installed.
On the script, the where-object is fine. I can get it to install from the script no problem.. The problem is its not configuring the strings in one swoop. I'm having to run the script twice. Once snmp is installed it jumps right to deleting the former reg keys and adding the two that we need.
And again, SCOM will not help us here.. You guys are recommending SCOM to me and you haven't any idea what I'm setting this up for. Its for dell open manage essentials.
And I'll admit our SCOM team (1 guy) was very lazy with his configuration of Alerts - thus my getting over 700 emails a day.. None of which are critical.
SCOM is not the point of this thread... Nor can it do anything that I'm needing to use dell OME for -- updates (hardware), inventory, and warranty status.
