Agent proxying needs to be enabled for a health service to submit discovery data about other computers


I had following error message keep showing up in SCOM console as error. I keep checking my SCOM server is enabled for “Agent Proxying” (SCOM Console –> Administration –> Agent Managed Computers, right click on the computer and select properties, check the check box in Security tab). But the error message wasn’t going away.

After some research, I came across http://blogs.msdn.com/mariussutara/archive/2007/11/09/agent-proxying-alert.aspx and it resolved my issue.

As specified in the above blog, run the query and check the Path column. It should be a server name. Enable “Agent Proxying” for the Path mentioned server. Good Luck.
