Connect-ConfigMgr64 - Function to connect to CMSite (SCCM) # Feedback for Improvement?



Recommended Posts

Hi WN

I created a function to connect to the CMSite and load the cmdlet for ConfigurationManager.

Could the function be improved in any way or is it as good it can be? is the logic best practice or?

function Connect-ConfigMgr64
{
	$initParams = @{ }
	if ((Get-Module ConfigurationManager) -eq $null)
	{
		try
		{
			Import-Module "$($ENV:SMS_ADMIN_UI_PATH)\..\ConfigurationManager.psd1" @initParams -Scope Global
		}
		catch
		{
			$ModulePath = (Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\ConfigMgr10\Setup -Name "UI Installation Directory").'UI Installation Directory'
			Import-Module $ModulePath\bin\ConfigurationManager.psd1 -Scope Global
		}
	}
	if ((Get-Module ConfigurationManager) -ne $null)
	{
		$SiteCode = Get-PSDrive -PSProvider CMSITE
		if ((Get-PSDrive -Name $SiteCode -PSProvider CMSite -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null)
		{
			$ProviderMachineName = (Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\ConfigMgr10\AdminUI\Connection -Name Server).Server
			New-PSDrive -Name $SiteCode -PSProvider CMSite -Root $ProviderMachineName @initParams
		}
		if ((Get-PSProvider -PSProvider CMSite) -ne $null)
		{
			Set-Location $SiteCode":\"
			Write-Host 'Type "Get-Command -Module ConfigurationManager" for a list of SCCM CMDlets.' -ForegroundColor Green
		}
		else
		{
			$CustomError = [String]"Error: Can't find CMSite provider"
			Throw $CustomError
		}
	}
	else
	{
		$CustomError = [String]"Unable to locate System Center Configuration Manager installation folder!"
		Throw $CustomError
	}
}
