As you are aware by now I’m creating a series of Powershell automation activities to automate some System Center installation tasks. Below you can find a Powershell script that will connect to the Opsmgr server remotely (so you dont need the OpsMgr powershell snappin installed locally) deploy the scom agent and enable agent proxiyng on them.

#Connect remotely to the SCOM server

Start-Sleep -s 60

#enabling agent proxying for vmm and AD management pack

#Enable Agent Proxying
Get-ScomAgent | where{$_.ProxyingEnabled.Value -eq $False} | Enable-SCOMAgentProxy
