Playing with automation of OMS agent deployment

I have been playing around with automation of the deployment of OMS agents in my lab environment and wanted to share one way to do it, of course there are others.

I found Adam´s contribution to send files over PS2+ WinRM instead of utilizing a remote share or other deployment of the installation file..  Sometimes you maybe have firewall constraints to take into consideration and then this is a handy way to get that MMAgent over and installed if you have maybe only PowerShell remoting open 🙂

If you already have WMF 5 deployed you can utilize that instead of the Send-File function as it is in the new PowerShell version by default.

And here is the code:

good luck in deploying those OMS agents!
