You can move agents across the managers to meet the needs of your organization. This functionality makes it easy to manage the managers and agents remotely. You can move a single agent or a group of agents across the managers from the ESM console. When you move an agent to a manager, the agent is automatically registered to the target manager. You do not have to register the agent manually to the target manager. Moreover, the agent that you move automatically gets unregistered from the source manager.
You cannot move an ESM agent to a target manager if the version of the target manager is earlier than the version of the agent. For example, you cannot move an ESM 9.0 agent to an ESM 6.5.3 or 6.0 manager.
Before you move an agent to a target manager, you must ensure that there are no current or no scheduled policy runs on the agent. You must import the available policy run data from the agent by using the Reporting Database Link or the Database Conversion tool.
You can move agents from a manager or a domain by using the following options:
You may choose to cancel a move of multiple agents to the target manager before the operation is complete. However, only the agents that are not yet moved are held back from being moved. In case of a single agent, you cannot cancel moving the agent to the target manager after you have started the operation.
You must have write permissions on the domain that contains the agent that you want to move. If you want to move the agent to a new domain or to an existing domain, the user account of the target manager must have the following rights:
