To administer remote computers with Microsoft Forefront Security for Exchange Server installed, you must deploy Operations Manager 2007 agents to them. These agents communicate between the managed servers and Operations Manager 2007.
An agent is a System Center Operations Manager service that runs on each computer that you want to monitor. An agent captures information from the computer on which it is running, applies predefined rules to the captured data, and performs actions as defined by the rules.
Systems that have had the agents installed are referred to as agent-managed systems.
Agents are deployed using the Discovery Wizard, which is used to discover all the computers that can be managed. You deploy the agents from within the Discovery Wizard, after the computers are discovered.
For more information about deploying Operations Manager 2007 agents, refer to the product help and documentation at the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager TechCenter.
E-mail and paging notifications can be sent when alerts occur. For more information about configuring notifications within Operations Manager 2007, refer to the product help and documentation at the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager TechCenter.
