Enabling Default Proxy for SCOM 2012 Agents

Hello by now I am sure that many of you have been looking around for the ability to enable the default proxy setting of your 2012 agents to true.  I know I have been or should I say had 😉 .  Well after looking at quite a few different posts I wanted to try something.  I started reading Oskar's post More then meets the eye (http://www.systemcentercentral.com/system-center-operations-manager-2012-more-that-meets-the-eye-part-2scom-2007r2scom2012-powershell/) and I also found many of the old methods for the 2007 days.  So I thought why not try to combine for 2012???

Create a PowerShell script that will call the old SCOM 2007 R2 snapin.  So copy the text below and save it to c:\temp (or wherever you choose) Make sure you edit the "YOUR.MGMT.SERVER" portion!!!!


add-pssnapin "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client"

new-managementGroupConnection -ConnectionString:YOUR.MGMT.SERVER

set-location "OperationsManagerMonitoring::"

Set-DefaultSetting -Name HealthService\ProxyingEnabled -Value True


Open up regular Windows PowerShell - not Operations Manager PowerShell

Navigate to C:\Temp or wherever you saved your PROXY.ps1 and execute

you will have output like below

Now all your agents should be default HealthService\ProxyingEnabled = True
