How to Approve an Operations Manager 2007 Agent Installed for a Management Group Using MOMAgent.msi
Use the following procedure to approve an Operations Manager 2007 agent installed for a Management Group with MOMAgent.msi. This procedure is not needed if the Management Group has been configured to automatically approve manually installed agents. For information about how to configure a Management Group to automatically approve manually installed agents, see How to Configure Security for Manual Agent Installs Setting for an Operations Manager 2007 Management Group.
A Management Group must be configured to accept agents installed with MOMAgent.msi or they will be automatically rejected and therefore not display in the Operations Console. For more information, see How to Configure Security for Manual Agent Installs Setting for an Operations Manager 2007 Management Group. If a Management Group is configured to accept manually installed agents after the agents have been manually installed, the agents will display in the console after approximately one hour.
