Scanning Managed Computers

Agent Managers periodically scan the Managed Computers list. You can also scan on demand. Scanning finds computers that match the Managed Computer rule, collects computer attributes, evaluates computer group membership, and identifies computers requiring an agent installation or uninstallation. By default, MOM lists these computers in the Pending Installations window of the Configuration Manager, where you can choose to approve or cancel pending actions.

To scan managed computers:

  1. Expand Microsoft Operations Manager (default) in the left pane.
  2. Expand Configuration in the left pane.
  3. Click Global Settings in the left pane.
  4. Click Agent Managers in the right pane.
  5. Click Action on the menu bar.
  6. Click Properties on the Action menu.
  7. Click Pending Installations in the left pane to see the results of the scan.
