If you are using System Center Operations Manager and you want to bulk remove multiple Management Packs, then you can use the power of the Operations Manager Shell to carry it out.
First of all, you need to open up the Operations Manager Shell. Then you should run the following command:
Get-SCOMManagementPack | where Name -like "*Microsoft.SQLServer*"
- “*Microsoft.SQLServer*” = the management pack names that you want to remove. Note that you can use a * wildcard here.
This will list all the management packs that you have installed as per the criteria you have entered and should look something like this:
Check you are happy with this list and then move onto the following command which will remove all of those management packs listed:
Get-SCOMManagementPack | where Name -like "*Microsoft.SQLServer*" | Remove-SCManagementPack
This will then go through and remove all of the management packs that match your criteria.
Depending on how many you are trying to remove at the same time – this could take a while.
This has been updated and tested on System Center Operations Manager 2019.
