This is a continuation of a Data Center Automation series of posts that I have been working on with Anders Bengtsson. Here are the first three posts in this series:

Creating Management Packs in SCOM 2012 with PowerShell
Creating Performance Collection Rules in SCOM 2012 with PowerShell
Creating Event Based Alerting Rules in SCOM 2012 with PowerShell

This script is also included as an activity in the Operations Manager Admin Integration Pack.

Syntax:  

.\EnableOrDisable –ManagementServer ‘om01.contoso.com’ –ManagementPackID ‘custom.example.test’ –MPObjectID ‘custom.example.test.rule.test1’ –Enabled false

Parameters:

Name Description
ManagementServer Name of MS to connect to
ManagementPackID ID of the MP you want to modify
MPObjectID Rule, Monitor, Discovery, or Task that you want to disable or enable (assumes unsealed as it doesn’t create an override)
Enabled false if you want it disabled, true if you want it enabled
