Force Change Proxy Agent in a Agentless Cluster Virtual Server


  • Hi All,

    I´m working on customer environment in SCOM 2012 SP1

    Customer have a HA High Performance SQL Cluster with 6 nodes and 3 Virtual Servers, each with a SQL Instance. i´m troubleshooting a isse with SQL performance data, that have some gaps of 5, 6 hours without having data. No events even in the client ou the MS tha show us a clue.

    i saw that the virtual server agent proxy is pointing to the backup node, and think to change the proxy agent for the active node to see if the problem is gone, but if i change the proxy agent on the console, nothing happens.

    I need to do something else, like making a flush on the Agent or restart the service?

    Best Regards

  • One agent will be assigned the task of monitoring the virtual components. Normally just any one of them would do. However you can try to stop the agent and flush it and rrestart it again and see if the data flow gets more constant.
