Enable the Agent Proxy Setting on the Head Nodes

The Agent Proxy setting needs to be enabled on all head nodes of the cluster to discover managed objects in the cluster.

To enable the Agent Proxy setting

  1. Open the Operations Console and click the Administration button.

  2. In the Administration pane, click Agent Managed.

  3. Double-click a managed head node in the list.

  4. Click the Security tab.

  5. Select Allow this agent to act as a proxy and discover managed objects on other computers.

  6. If the head node is configured for high availability, repeat steps 3 through 5 for the remaining managed head node.

You can also run the following PowerShell script to enable the proxy option after the installed agents are added to the Agent Managed Computer Group. Note that the computers will be moved into the Agent Managed Computer Group automatically if the agents are installed by the Discovery Wizard on the Operations Manager server. However, if the agents are installed locally on each machine, those computers will be first placed in the Pending Management Group. After you manually choose Approve, the computers will be moved to the Agent Managed Computer Group.
