I know there is a management pack to load balance agents between management servers. What is the best way to load balance gateway servers between SCOM management servers. Is there any tool/script or any recommended approach to do so?

    Hi D D,

    yes, up on installation of each Gateway you need to specify a management server it reports to. This automatically bcomes the Primary Management Server of an Gateway.

    You can assign a Seconday Management Server or even a List of Secondary Management servers, all this, using PowerShell.

    This is covered in great details with examples here:

    Assigning Gateways and Agents to Management Servers using PowerShell

    and the same examples are listed in official MS Learn documentation for SCOM:

    To configure gateway server failover between management servers

    I hope I could help you out!
