Manage Forefront TMG from System Center Essentials 2010

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I am trying to get management of our TMG server (which is a VM on a Hyper-V host) working from our SCE 2010 server. I have manually installed the agent and the server appears in the list of computers. The alert status column appears as OK however the Update Status appears as Unknown as does the Operating System column. The Agent Status column appears as Loading (actually it seems to be showing as Loading on all our VMs, the Hyper-V hosts all appear fine, it is just the guests).

All servers are running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. The hosts are running Core.

TMG is running the full installation as is the SCE server. I have added in a WSUS traffic policy as per this blog (http://blogs.technet.com/b/isablog/archive/2009/11/28/using-windows-server-update-service-for-the-tmg-update-center.aspx) substituting 8531 for 8530 as that is what SCE uses for the Update server.

There is also a policy for the SCE agent with the System Center Operations Manager Agent Installation Port and the Sytem Center Operation Manager Agent Ports added.

As we have just had Patch Tuesday I know there must be at least one or two updates missing.

Is there something else I am missing in my configuration?
