Migrating Agents to a New Management Group

Use one of the following methods to migrate an agent to a new management group:

  • Uninstall the agent from the first management group, and then reinstall the agent to the new management group.

  • To ensure continued monitoring, first multihome the agent by installing it to the new management group. After monitoring from the new management group is verified, then uninstall the agent from the old management group.

For more information about installing and uninstalling agent computers, see Chapter 4, "Discovering Computers and Deploying MOM Agents", of the Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 Deployment Guide.
