How to: Enlist a Target Server to a Master Server (SQL Server Management Studio)

Updated: 12 December 2006

This topic describes how to add target servers to a multiserver administration configuration. Run this procedure from the master server.

For information about how the Windows account used for the SQL Server Agent service affects a multiserver environment, see Creating a Multiserver Environment.

Full Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption and certificate validation is enabled for connections between master servers and target servers by default. For more information, see Setting Encryption Options on Target Servers.

  1. In Object Explorer, expand a server that is configured as a master server.

  2. Right-click SQL Server Agent, point to Multi Server Administration, and then click Add Target Servers.

  3. Complete the Target Server Wizard, which guides you through the process.
