Migrating Agents Across Domains

When you move an agent computer from one domain to another, you must uninstall and then re-install the agent computer from all management groups that it belongs to. Data associated with the agent computer, prior to the domain move, is not retained.

To migrate an agent across domains

  1. Uninstall the agent.

  2. Delete all computer discovery rules for the agent that meet the following criteria:

    • Rule type = Include

    • Computer name = computer_name (where computer_name is the name of the affected computer)

  3. Move the computer to the new domain.

  4. Reinstall the computer to the management group, either remotely or manually.

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.
