Configuring the Lync Server 2013 computer to participate in System Center discovery

Lync Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2012-10-20

To make sure that your new Lync Server agent participates in discovery process for System Center Operations Manager, you must complete the following procedure on each computer where the System Center Operations Manager console has been installed:

  1. On the Administration tab, click Agent Managed.

  2. Right-click the name of the computer, and then click Properties. In the Properties dialog box, on the Security tab, select Allow this agent to act as a proxy and discover managed objects on other computers, and then click OK.

After completing step 2, reboot the Health Agent service. (Rebooting the service will “force” discovery of the new machine. If you do not reboot the service, it could take as long as 4 hours before the new machine is discovered by System Center Operations Manager.). After the service has rebooted, verify that no error events are being recorded in the Operations Manager event log on that computer.
