How to Configure SCOM 2012 Agent Failover to Multiple Gateway Servers

SCOM 2012 agent failover configuration is very simple. You have to run just below operation shell.

For example below is the primary & secondary SCOM gateway server where all agents are reporting.

Primary                :               XYZ01.com

Secondary           :               XYZ02.com

For example if your primary SCOM gateway (XYZ01.com) is down it all agent should report to Secondary gateway server (XYZ02.com).

$primaryMS = Get-ManagementServer | where {$_.Name –eq ‘ XYZ01.com ‘}

$failoverMS = Get-ManagementServer | where {$_.Name –eq ‘ XYZ02.com ‘}

$agent = Get-Agent | where {$_.PrimaryManagementServerName -eq ‘ XYZ01.com ‘}

Set-ManagementServer -AgentManagedComputer: $agent -PrimaryManagementServer: $primaryMS -FailoverServer: $failoverMS

If your secondary SCOM gateway server (XYZ02.com) is down, all agent which is reporting to secondary gateway server it should report to primary gateway server (XYZ01.com)

$primaryMS = Get-ManagementServer | where {$_.Name –eq ‘ XYZ02.com ‘}

$failoverMS = Get-ManagementServer | where {$_.Name –eq ‘ XYZ01.com ‘}

$agent = Get-Agent | where {$_.PrimaryManagementServerName -eq ‘ XYZ02.com ‘}

Set-ManagementServer -AgentManagedComputer: $agent -PrimaryManagementServer: $primaryMS -FailoverServer: $failoverMS
