SCOM 2012 Agent proxy not enabled

This alert indicates that an Operations Manager agent attempted to discover or generate data about an object that resides on another computer. This is not allowed by default, but is sometimes required for proper monitoring. For example, the agent might be running as part of a cluster, and trying to discover the virtual cluster node.

The agent will not be able to do this until agent proxy is enabled.


If you have reviewed that the agent should be able to discover and send data on behalf of another computer, you should enable proxying for that agent:

Go to the Administration space in the Operations Manager Console
Find the agent in the Agent Managed view
Open Properties for that agent
In the Security tab, check the Allow this agent to act as a proxy option
Click OK
