Use the Agent Setup Wizard

Updated: May 22, 2009

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2, Operations Manager 2007 SP1

Use the following procedure to deploy the Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 agent with the MOMAgent.msi setup wizard.

Before you use the setup wizard, ensure the following conditions are met:

  • Each agent that is installed with the wizard must be approved by a management group. For more information, see Process Manual Agent Installations in Operations Manager 2007.

  • If an agent is manually deployed to a domain controller and an Active Directory management pack is later deployed, errors might occur during deployment of the management pack. To prevent errors from occurring before deploying the Active Directory management pack, or to recover from errors that might have already occurred, you need to deploy the Active Directory management pack helper object by deploying the file Oomads.msi on the affected domain controller. The file Oomads.msi is on the computer that is hosting the agent at C:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\HelperObjects. For more information, see the section "Agent-Managed Domain Controllers" in the topic Process Manual Agent Installations in Operations Manager 2007

To deploy the Operations Manager 2007 agent with the Agent Setup Wizard

  1. Use local administrator privileges to log on to the computer where you want to install the agent.

  2. On the Operations Manager 2007 installation media, double-click the SetupOM.exe file.

  3. On the Start page, select Install Operations Manager 2007 Agent.

  4. On the Welcome page, click Next.

      noteNote
      Step 7 is bypassed by the Agent Setup Wizard if the Specify Management Group information check box is cleared.

  7. On the Management Group Configuration page, do the following:

    1. Type the name of the management group in the Management Group Name field and the server name in the Management Server field.

      noteNote
