Powershell SMO script not working.

Heyas,

I am using the following PowerShell script recommended (see attached) to me via this MSDN article:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee210565.aspx
# Get Ucp connection  
$UcpServerInstanceName = "UCH-SQLC01-D001\MSSQLSERVER";  
$UtilityInstance = new-object -Type Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server $UcpServerInstanceName;  
$UcpConnection = new-object -Type Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc.SqlStoreConnection $UtilityInstance.ConnectionContext.SqlConnectionObject;  
$Utility = [Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Utility.Utility]::Connect($UcpConnection);  
  
# Now remove the ManagedInstance from the SQL Server Utility  
$ServerInstanceName = "UCH-SQLC01-D001\MSSQLSERVER";  
$Instance = new-object -Type Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server $ServerInstanceName;  
$InstanceConnection = new-object -Type Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc.SqlStoreConnection $Instance.ConnectionContext.SqlConnectionObject;  
$ManagedInstance = $Utility.ManagedInstances[$ServerInstanceName];  
$ManagedInstance.Remove($InstanceConnection);  

Open in new window

Then loading the necessary SMO https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh231286.aspx

However, when I run the script I get the following error, see attached.
Power Shell ErrorI am using the SQL command to get the Server/Instance name.

@@servername + '\' + @@servicename

I don't understand how this is occurring as I am running the script locally.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.

Do you really mean the UCP? It is  a centrally managed SQL Server collecting and monitoring data from different other MSSQL instances, something you only use in "bigger" environments.

It looks like you have a default instance, hence the instance name in the script should be set to "UCH-SQLC01-D001", not "UCH-SQLC01-D001\MSSQLSERVER". Can you update the instance name in the script and try again?

Eugene ZCommented:
it is the same sql name when you run
select @@SERVERNAME AS instance_name. Right?
What is your sql server version? Sql 2016?
if yes, check  this https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee210568.aspx

Can you connect it from SSMS (remote)?
on UCH-SQLC01-D001 server check if Sql server Browser service is running,,

The error message doesn't fit to the script, The error messages wants to connect a local unnamed instance, while the script is about a remote or local named instance. What is your $UcpServerInstanceName, and as asked above, your local instance name (if any)?

Eugene, the SMO objects are already used, and there is no mentioning of SQL PS here (yet).

I've reviewed your question again, and see a conflict. Do you really want to connect to MSSQL to get your instance name? If so, above code is the wrong approach, as it requires you to know the instance name already.

Hi Qlemo,

I will embed code in future thank you. As for my query, I am trying to 'Remove an Instance of SQL Server from the SQL Server Utility' and using the script provided to me in this article: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee210565.aspx.

Since the method described in the article is the wrong approach what would be the right approach?

Thank you.

Hi Qlemo,

My manager told me to try to get Utility Explorer working for this server instance, so I am trying to get the UCP working.
