“When you un-installed the SCOM Agent from managed servers, SCOM is not discovering those Servers again to re-install agents”

Hi,

Today i have found that on few of our servers there are wrong version of SCOM Agents is installed, for example 32bit Agents are installed on 64bit Servers. Then i plan to uninstall them and reinstall the proper agent version

I un-installed the Agents using “Add remove programs” on all the servers and then tried to reinstall them again using “Operations Manager Console”.

But

When i run the “discovery wizard” it’s not showing me the server on whose I un-installed the agent, i tries 3-4 time but same problem. then i searched the internet and tried few troubleshooting tip but nothing helps.

then i thought let’s check the “agent managed” may be the server is still on SCOM Database that’s why its not detecting it.

I got to “Administration Pane” and click on “Agent managed” and then i search for the server on which i am trying to re-install the agent and as expected it was there.

Agent_12

ok, not its time to delete it, select the server and right click on it and click on “delete”

Agent_13

now click on “Yes”

Agent_14

All Done, wait for 5 minutes , run the discovery wizard again and hopefully this time you will successfully able to discover the Server :)

Solution: In my case the solution was removing the server in “Agent managed”

thanks
