Installing and configuring the MMA agent


 

Maybe the MMA agent is like Venom?
Proof I've watched too many a Marvel movie...

 

An existential moment perhaps, but the MMA agent can be a bunch of strings stuck from one place to another, monitoring whatever its told to do.

 

 

 

If you are running SCOM2016 or above, the MMA agent is built-in with Log Analytics, just configure your workspace

 

 

 

 

Download and Install MMA agent

SCOM 2012R2 agent does not have MMA, so download MMA agent from Log Analytics workspace

Azure Portal > Log Analytics > Subscription > Advanced Settings

Click on Windows Servers from Connected Sources to download Windows Agent

Click on Linux Servers from Connected Sources to download Linux Agent

 

 

From the Azure Portal (https://ms.portal.azure.com)

Click on Log Analytics, <your subscription >

Click on Advanced Settings

My view defaulted to Connected Sources > Windows Servers

 

Save the workspace ID and workspace key to notepad/OneNote for later

 

 

 

< Assuming the MMA agent is installed with Log Analytics capability >

 

 

Update MMA Agent with Workspace ID and Key

From MMA agent, update the OMS Workspace with the GUID copied to notepad

 

Click on Start > Control Panel, System and Security > Microsoft Monitoring Agent

Click on Azure Log Analytics (OMS) tab on MMA agent

Click Add

 

Add Workspace ID and Key to agent

Click OK

Click OK again on MMA properties

 

Look for the healthy green checkbox'd circle

      Hello,
      The steps to connect MMA agent to Azure is very similar to the SCOM steps.
      Please see this link from the docs site.
