The Hidden SCOM Command (Or how to enable Proxy on all future Agents in SCOM)

In the last many years I have read a lot of blogs of how to change default values in the SCOM Management Group, and everytime I see one I put a bow on my finger to remember to create a blog of how to change the default value of eg. the Proxy setting. First of all begin by starting your Operations Manager Shell and type the following nice oneliner:

add-pssnapin "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client";
new-managementGroupConnection –ConnectionString:[Your SCOM Server FQDN];
set-location "OperationsManagerMonitoring::"

When you get your “Are you Ready!” –> naaa its actually some information about your connection to your SCOM Server.

Then try this command:

Get-DefaultSetting | FT

The output of this command gives you an overview of 5 categories:

  • HealthService
  • Agent
  • ManagementServer
  • NotificationServer
  • ManagementGroup

Now you are able to use this for your internal documentation or change the default values for Proxying like this:

Set-DefaultSetting –Name HealthService\ProxyingEnabled –Value True

Have a great day
