Configure an Agent to Report to Multiple Management Groups

Updated: May 22, 2009

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

Use the following procedure to make an Operations Manager 2007 agent a member of multiple management groups, also referred to as multihoming. For example, an agent can be configured to report Active Directory data to the Networking Management Group and Exchange data to the Messaging Management Group. An agent can be a member of up to four management groups.

You do not need to use the same deployment method for all of the management groups.

You can also use Active Directory Domain Services to assign agents to management groups. For more information, see How to Use Active Directory to Assign Computers to an Operations Manager 2007 Management Group.

noteNote
It might take one day or longer for the discovered instances of the agent to be made part of the new management group. They will be added after the next discovery interval.
