How to configure SCOM 2012 Agent Failover

SCOM 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
