Display primary and failover servers for all gateways

# Display Primary and Failover Management Servers for all Gateway Servers


$GWs = Get-SCOMManagementServer | where {$_.IsGateway -eq $true}
$GWs | sort | foreach {
 Write-Host "";
 "Gateway MS :: " + $_.Name;
 "--Primary MS :: " + ($_.GetPrimaryManagementServer()).ComputerName;
 $failoverServers = $_.getFailoverManagementServers();
 foreach ($managementServer in $failoverServers) {
  "--Failover MS :: " + ($managementServer.ComputerName);

Write-Host "";

Configure failover for gateways

$primaryMS = Get-SCOMManagementServer | where {$_.Name –eq '<primairy ms>'}
$failoverMS = Get-SCOMManagementServer | where {$_.Name –eq '<secundairy ms'}
$gatewayMS = Get-SCOMManagementServer | where {$_.IsGateway -eq $true}
Set-SCOMParentManagementServer -GatewayServer: $gatewayMS -PrimaryServer: $primaryMS
Set-SCOMParentManagementServer -GatewayServer: $gatewayMS -FailoverServer: $failoverMS


Enable proxy for all agents

get-SCOMagent | where {$_.ProxyingEnabled -match "False"} | Enable-SCOMAgentProxy

Enable agent proxy by default

add-pssnapin "Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client";
new-managementGroupConnection -ConnectionString:scomserver.domain.com;
set-location "OperationsManagerMonitoring::";
Set-DefaultSetting -Name HealthService\ProxyingEnabled -Value True

Get Grey Agents

# Import the OperationsManager module
Import-Module OperationsManager


# Define the array
$GreyAgents  = @()


# Define the output file


# Get the agent class and select the grey objects
$agent = Get-SCClass -name "Microsoft.SystemCenter.Agent"
$objects = Get-SCOMMonitoringObject -class:$agent | where {$_.IsAvailable –eq $false}


# Put the items in the array

ForEach ($object in $objects) {
 $GreyAgents = $GreyAgents + $object.DisplayName


# Sort the array items and display them in a grid view
$GreyAgents | sort | Out-GridView

Configure Agent failover to Gateway's


## This script collects the agents talking to a specific gateway server and are member for a specific domain. Then set's the failover.
## Any configured failovers are removed and replaced


$primaryMS = Get-SCOMManagementServer -Name '<Primairy Gateway FQDN>'
$failoverMS = Get-SCOMManagementServer -Name '<Failover Gateway FQDN>'

$agents = Get-SCOMAgent | where {$_.PrimaryManagementServerName -eq $primaryMS.DisplayName -and $_.DisplayName -match '<domain name like:  .mydomain.com>'}

foreach ($agent in $agents) {

if (($agent.GetFailoverManagementServers().DisplayName) -eq $failoverMS.DisplayName) {

    write-host -ForegroundColor Green "server $($Agent.Displayname) is ok"

else {

    Set-SCOMParentManagementServer -Agent: $agent -FailoverServer: $failoverMS
    ## Set-SCOMParentManagementServer -Agent: $agent -PrimaryServer: $primaryMS
    write-host -ForegroundColor Red "Server $($agent.DisplayName) is aangepast"

Reset monitors with closed alerts

Everyone working with SCOM knows that when an alerts is created by a monitor and is closed without solving the issue no alert will come until the monitor is reset or maintenance mode to the object has been applied.
This can cause blanc spots in monitoring.
The Powershell script created will resets the monitor if a closed alert has been found and no new alert is active.

You could schedule this script or build it in a maintenance management pack so it runs frequently.

Thanks to Michel van der Zijden!

Import-Module OperationsManager

# Get closed alerts generated by a monitor that are not resolved by OpsMgr
$alerts=get-scomalert -ResolutionState 255 | ?{$_.IsMonitorAlert -eq $true -and $_.LastModifiedBy -ne "System"}

Write-Output "Found $($alerts.count) manually closed alerts"

# Loop through all found alerts
foreach ($alert in $alerts) {
    $MonitorID = $alert.monitoringruleid
    $ObjectID = $alert.monitoringobjectid
    $monitor = Get-SCOMMonitor -Id $MonitorID
    $monitoringobject = Get-SCOMMonitoringobject -Id $ObjectID

    # Only proceed when the current object is still in an Error of Warning status.
    If (($monitoringobject.HealthState -eq "Error") -or ($monitoringobject.HealthState -eq "Warning")) {

        # Check if the monitor has an active alert, if that is not the case we will reset the monitor to trigger a new alert.
        If (get-scomalert -ResolutionState 0,100,101,102,200,247,248,249,250 | Where{$_.monitoringobjectid -eq $ObjectID -and $_.monitoringruleid -eq $MonitorID}) {
