When an agent is manually installed on a computer using MOMAgent.msi, referred to as a manual install, the agent will attempt to join the specified management group. This topic provides the procedure to accept or reject new manual agent installations.

This procedure configures the Manual Agent Installs setting for the management group. To override the management group setting on a specific management server, see How to Override the Manual Agent Installs Setting for an Operations Manager 2007 Management Server.

To configure manual agent installs settings for a management group

  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Operations Manager Administrators role for the Operations Manager 2007 management group.

  2. In the Operations console, click the Administration button.

  3. In the Administration pane, expand Administration, and then click Settings.

  4. In the Settings pane, expand Type: Server, right-click Security, and then click Properties.

  5. In the Global Management Server Settings - Security dialog box, on the General tab, do one of the following:

    • To maintain a higher level of security, select Reject new manual agent installations, and then click OK.

    • To configure for manual agent installation, click Review new manual agent installations in pending management view, and then click OK.

      Leaving Auto-approve new manually installed agents cleared is the more secure option and is recommended.
