Deployment of agents to Servers

To ensure all of the virtual servers in your domain get the management agent pushed to them, make sure that you have the OMadmins account nested in the local administrators group on each server to ensure that your servers can receive the agent.

We must now deploy an agent to the SQL server.

Log into SCOM01 using OMAA account.

The default page view is shown below. Select the Administration Tab at the bottom of the page.
