Install Agent on Windows Using the Discovery Wizard

  1. Log on to the Operations console with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role.

2. Click Administration.

3. At the bottom of the navigation pane, click Discovery Wizard. The Discovery Wizard links in the Operations console open the Computer and Device Management Wizard.


4. On the Discovery Type page, click Windows computers or choose which option is best for you.


5. On the Auto or Advanced? page, do the following:

o Select either Automatic computer discovery or Advanced discovery. If you select Automatic computer discovery, click Next. If you select Advanced discovery, continue with the following steps.

o Automatic computer discovery scans for Windows-based computers in the domain. Advanced discovery allows you to specify criteria for the computers that the wizard will return, such as computer names starting with NY.

o In the Computer and Device Classes list, select Servers and Clients, Servers Only, or Clients Only.

o In the Management Server list, click the management server or gateway server to discover the computers.

o If you selected Servers and Clients, you can select the Verify discovered computers can be contacted check box. This is likely to increase the success rate of agent deployment, but discovery can take longer.

o If the Active Directory catalogue does not contain the NetBIOS names for computers in a domain, select Verify discovered computers can be contacted. Otherwise, the Browse, or Type In option fails to find computers. This affects computers in the same domain as the management server, in another domain with a full trust relationship, and in untrusted domains by using a gateway server.

6. Click Next.


7. On the Discovery Method page, you can locate the computers that you want to manage by either scanning or browsing Active Directory Domain Services or typing the computer names.

8. If you want to scan, do the following:

· If it is not already selected, select Scan Active Directory and then click Configure.

· In the Find Computers dialog box, type the criteria that you want to use for discovering computers, and then click OK.

9. In the Domain list, click the domain of the computers that you want to discover.

10. If you want to browse Active Directory Domain Services or type the computer names, do the following:

11. Select Browse for, or type-in computer names, click Browse, specify the names of the computers that you want to manage, and then click OK.

12. In the Browse for, or type-in computer names box, type the computer names, separated by a semi-colon, comma, or a new line. You can use NetBIOS computer names or fully qualified domain names (FQDN).


13. Click Next, and on the Administrator Account page, do one of the following:

14. Select Use selected Management Server Action Account if it is not already selected.

15. Select Other user account, type the User name and Password, and then select the Domain from the list. If the user name is not a domain account, select This is a local computer account, not a domain account.


16. Click Discover to display the Discovery Progress page. The time it takes discovery to finish depends on many factors, such as the criteria specified and the configuration of the IT environment. If a large number (100 or more) of computers are being discovered or agents are being installed, the Operations console will not be usable during discovery and agent installation.



17. On the Select Objects to Manage page, do the following:

18. Select the computers that you want to be agent-managed computers.

19. In the Management Mode list, click Agent and then click Next.


20. On the Summary page, do the following:

21. Leave the Agent installation directory set to the default of %ProgramFiles%\System Center Operations Manager or type an installation path.

22. If a different Agent installation directory is specified, the root of the path must exist on the targeted computer or the agent installation fails. Subdirectories, such as \Agent, are created if they do not exist.

23. Leave Agent Action Account set to the default, Local System, or select Other and type the User name, Password, and Domain. The Agent Action Account is the default account that the agent will use to perform actions.

24. Click Finish.

25. In the Agent Management Task Status dialog box, the Status for each selected computer changes from Queued to Success; the computers are ready to be managed.

26. If the task fails for a computer, click the targeted computer. The reason for the failure is displayed in the Task Output text box.
