  • Hello Tushar,

    Please check if any error or warning events was logged on the problematic machines.

    And you can refer to this simialr thread:

  • you need to check in the mom 2005 admin console in the discovery rules, to make sure there are still discovery rules for those machines. If there are not discovery rules for those machines you will need to make new ones so they will continue to be managed.

    I'm assuming that they at one point were managed and reporting to mom 2005. if this is the case this is probably the cause.

    hope this helps!

  • you could dump the names of the computers that you need to manage into the manualmc.txt file I think is what its called.  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc180815.aspx for more details see below for usage.

    To use the ManualMC.txt file to specify computers for discovery

    1. On the Management Server, create a text file named ManualMC.txt in the directory where you installed MOM 2005. The default installation directory is \%SystemRoot%\Program Files\Microsoft Operations Manager 2005.

    2. Add the computer names to the ManualMC.txt file.

    3. Save the file as an ANSI (default), Unicode, or UTF-8 encoded file.

    Guidelines for Adding Computer Names to the ManualMC.txt File

    When you add computer names to the ManualMC.txt file, use the following guidelines:

    • Enter one computer name per line.

    • Do not leave blank lines between computer names.

    • Add the computer names by using any of the following conventions:

      • Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) name - only if the computer is joined to an Active Directory domain.

      • NetBIOS name. (The character limit for NetBIOS computer names is 15 characters.)

      • Domain\ComputerName.

      • Workgroup Name\ Computer Name.

    You can remove agents from any computer in a ManualMC.txt file by simply removing the computers entry in the file and making sure that there are no other rules that include the computer. The agent will be removed during the next scheduled discovery, or you can do this immediately by right-clicking a Management Server and then clicking Run Computer Discovery Now.
