Operations Manager – Enable agent proxy on all agents

scom 2012

If you are using System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) then you may want to enable agent proxy on all your agents. If you want to do this then you can use the power of Powershell to carry this out.

Just open up a Powershell command box and use the following command:

get-SCOMagent | where {$_.ProxyingEnabled -match "False"} | Enable-SCOMAgentProxy

If you want to ensure that any future machines have their agent proxy enabled, then you can run this Powershell command:

add-pssnapin "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client";
new-managementGroupConnection -ConnectionString:scomserver.domain.com;
set-location "OperationsManagerMonitoring::";
Set-DefaultSetting -Name HealthServiceProxyingEnabled -Value True

Now when any new machines are added into your environment, you will see that the proxy agent is already enabled on them.
