The FEP 2010 Security Management Pack supports agent-managed monitoring. Agent-managed computers have an Operations Manager service installed. This service, which appears as HealthService in the Services list in Computer Management, is the Operations Manager agent. Monitoring computers via agents allows access to all Operations Manager options and functionality; therefore, the vast majority of monitoring is performed this way. In order to monitor FEP 2010 clients, each client must have the Operations Manager agent installed in addition to the FEP 2010 client.

The first step in monitoring your environment is to deploy agents. You can use any of the following ways to deploy Operations Manager agents:
The Discovery Wizard (through the Operations console)
The Agent Setup Wizard
The MOMAgent.msi program, from the command line
Active Directory®, to assign agents to a management group
