Agent Proxy Alert

ALERT:-Agent proxying needs to be enabled for a health service to submit discovery data about other computers.

How do I resolve this Health Service Id to an Agent, so I can go ahead and enable Agent Proxying?  If you don’t have access to SQL or you haven’t setup some kind of a custom report, there’s a quick way to resolve this GUID to an Agent and enable proxying for that agent using Powershell.

To resolve the agent

Open Operations Manager Command Shell.  Copy the first GUID from the Alert Description field (yellow highlight in image), and paste it into the following command.

get-agent | where {$ -eq “<guid>“} | select-object name

Agent Proxying

To enable Agent Proxying

$a=get-agent | where {$ -eq “<guid>“};$a.set_proxyingEnabled($true);$a.applyChanges()

Alternatively you could the a GUI tool written by Boris Yanushpolsky which can be downloaded from here:-
