KB: Domain controllers are unavailable in the Operations Manager console when no client agent is installed

Published Feb 16 2019 01:55 AM 65 Views
First published on TECHNET on Jun 17, 2015

In the System Center Operations Manager admin console, some domain controllers may appear unavailable (appear dimmed) or in a Not Monitored state.

This behavior can occur if the Management Pack for Active Directory is installed and if the domain controllers in question do not have the Operations Manager client agent installed. Active Directory Topology Discovery tries to discover all domain controllers regardless of whether the agent is installed.

For complete details as well as a resolution, please see the following:
