SCOM Agent for Workgroup not showing up on SCOM Console

In order to monitor a server that is in another domain/workgroup, a certificate will have to be imported to the server which the SCOM agent has been deployed. 

At times, you may wonder how is that with the certificate being imported into the server via MOMcertimport tool, the agent still do not show up under the pending management list of server on the SCOM console.
This usual has gotta do with the certificate.
To verify if the correct certificate is being used you may go to the below to check
  1. Log on to the computer with an account that is a member of the Administrators group.
  2. On the Windows desktop, click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  3. On the Registry Editor page, expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, expand SOFTWARE, expand Microsoft, expand Microsoft Operations Manager, expand 3.0, and then click Machine Settings.
  4. In the results pane, right-click ChannelCertificateSerialNumber
    (The value in this key should match the serial number of teh certificate in the reverse order)

    In any event that the value is wrong, you may choose to enter it manually else you can run the momcertimport tool again.
