Description

The Enable-SCOMAgentProxy cmdlet enables one or more agents to act as a proxy agents and discover managed objects on other computers.

Examples

Example 1: Enable an agent to act as a proxy agent

PS C:\>"server01.contoso.com" | Get-SCOMAgent | Enable-SCOMAgentProxy -PassThru

This command gets the Operations Manager agent named server01.contoso.com and enables the agent to act as a proxy agent for other agents and agentless managed computers. The command passes the name of the agent to the DNSHostName parameter of the Get-SCOMAgent cmdlet.

Example 2: Enable agents to act as a proxy agent

PS C:\>Get-SCOMAgent | Where-Object {$_.ProxyingEnabled.Value -eq $False} | Enable-SCOMAgentProxy -Confirm

This command gets all Operations Manager agents that have the ProxyingEnabled property set to $False, and then enables the agents to act as a proxy after the user confirms the action.

Example 3: Enable an agent to act as a proxy agent by using a property value

PS C:\>$Agent = Get-SCOMAgent -DNSHostName "server01.contoso.com"
PS C:\> $Agent.ProxyingEnabled

This example enables an agent to act as an agent proxy by setting a property of the agent.

The first command gets the Operations Manager agent named server01.contoso.com, and stores it in the $Agent variable.

The second command enables the agent stored in the $Agent variable to act as a proxy agent for other computers. The command sets the ProxyingEnabled property to $True for the agent stored in the $Agent variable.
