Use the Set-ManagementServer -AgentManagedComputer command in Command Shell as shown in the following example to configure an agent to failover to multiple gateway servers. The commands can be run from any Command Shell in the management group.

To configure agent failover to multiple gateway servers

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Administrators group.

  2. On the Windows desktop, click Start, point to Programs, point to System Center Operations Manager 2007, and then click Command Shell.

  3. In Command Shell, follow the example described in the next section.


The following example can be used to configure agent failover to multiple gateway servers.

  Copy Code
$primaryMS = Get-ManagementServer | where {your filter here}
$failoverMS = Get-ManagementServer | where {your filter here}
$agent = Get-Agent | where {your filter here}
Set-ManagementServer -AgentManagedComputer: $agent -PrimaryManagementServer: $primaryMS -FailoverServer: $failoverMS

In the example above, you will need to create a filter statement for the first three commands. The following is an example of a filter command written to find the computer that will be assigned to the $failoverMS variable:

  Copy Code
$failoverMS = Get-ManagementServer | where {$_.Name –eq ’’ }

For help with the Set-ManagementServer command, type the following in the Command Shell window:

  Copy Code
Get-help Set-ManagementServer -full
