The issue occurs if the UNIX/Linux monitoring resource pool is deleted.

      1. Right-click the account, and then select Properties.
      2. On the Distribution Security page of the UNIX/Linux Run As Accounts Wizard, select More Secure.
      3. In Selected computers and resource pools, select Add.
      4. Select Search by resource pool name, and then select Search.
      5. Select the new resource pool that is created in step 1, select Add, and then select OK.

  5. Verify that the agents that are associated with the deleted resource pool still exist and that the relationship remains.
  6. Run the following command to change the managing resource pool to the one that is created in step 1:

    $SCXPool = Get-SCOMResourcePool -DisplayName "<New Resource Pool Name>"
    Get-SCXAgent | Set-SCXResourcePool -ResourcePool $SCXPool
