The Operations Manager class libraries allow you to query and change many of the default Management Group settings.

Example

The following example demonstrates how to display the default heartbeat interval for all agent-managed computers in the Management Group. The example then changes the default interval to a new value.

Visual Basic  Copy Code
' Displays the current default agent heartbeat interval,
' and then changes the interval to 50 seconds.
Imports System
Imports System.Collections.Generic
Imports Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement
Imports Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Administration
Imports System.Text

Namespace SDKSamples
	Class Program

		Public Overloads Shared Function Main(ByVal args() As String) As Integer
			Dim mg As New ManagementGroup("localhost")

			Console.WriteLine("Configuring Management Group properties...")

			Dim mga As ManagementGroupAdministration = mg.GetAdministration()

			Console.WriteLine("The heartbeat interval is currently: " & _
				mga.Settings.GetDefaultValue(Settings.Agent.Heartbeats.Interval).ToString())

			mga.Settings.SetDefaultValue(Of Integer)(Settings.Agent.Heartbeats.Interval, 50)
 
			' need to call ApplyChanges to save the changes.
			'mga.Settings.ApplyChanges();

			Console.WriteLine("Agent heartbeat interval has now been set to: " & _
				mga.Settings.GetDefaultValue(Settings.Agent.Heartbeats.Interval).ToString())
		End Function 'Main
	End Class 'Program
End Namespace 'SDKSamples
C#  Copy Code
/// <summary>
