How to tell which Management Server the agents are using?

Thanks to Kevin Holman for this:

Netstat is the way to go to see which MS you are talking to “right now”.
netstat | findstr 5723
netstat -n | findstr 5723

The first one takes longer – but gives you the servername.
The second runs faster – but gives you the IP address.

The is the best way to determine who you SHOULD be talking to, your Primary. It will also show you a list of everyone the agent COULD fail over to, randomly.

Look in the config files (Goto \Health Service State\Connector Configuration Cache\ and open the xml file. Browse to and look for the management servers which is set to True.

Note

Looking in the registry will only show you who you were assigned to INITIALLY, at time of installation. It might not even be a real live management server anymore, or you might have moved the agent to talk to a different MS as primary.
