About Agents

Updated: January 1, 2011

Applies To: Forefront Endpoint Protection

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.

noteNote:
In order to monitor FEP 2010 clients, each client must have the Operations Manager agent installed in addition to the FEP 2010 client.

For information about deploying FEP 2010 clients, see Client Deployment.

Deploying Agents

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

For more information about working with Operations Manager agents, see Working with Agents (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=204242).
