i'm specifically using scom cmdlets, but maybe this isn't a scom-specific question.

"get-scomrecovery | get-member" returns a property named "writeaction""

WriteAction Property Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Configuration.ManagementPackWriteActionModule WriteAction {get;set;}

i'm curious about how I might use that {get;set} at the end.

$recovery.writeaction.configuration is an XML string that I need to edit in bulk for a lot of $recoveries. I know how to get that string and edit it to what I want, but i'm hoping "set" will let me update that property to the new string and update the Recovery object in scom with that new string.

In most cases ...

get = read only
set = writable, you can overwrite the content / value sored in the property.

If you mean change the property name, not it content/value, then that is a custom property thing.

As per the help files...

ManagementPackRecovery.WriteAction Property

Gets or sets a write action module definition that is executed. If a condition detection is specified, then the write action will only be executed if the data passes through the condition detection module.

I want to change the value of


that msdn article doesn't say anything about powershell syntax.

I tried

$recovery.writeaction.configuration = $mynewstring

but that doesn't seem to be writing the $mynewstring value back into scom.

what would be the syntax to change the value of $recovery.writeaction.configuration

The get;set seems to be C# specific per the link above.

Here is a list of all the SCOM cmdlet's, I'd look through the list of set's and see if anything looks to be helpful

Where are you getting "$recovery.writeaction.configuration" from?
