I have seen a number of scripts on the Internet to enable ACS forwarding for multiple machines. Unfortunately they are not always working or they have to many variables to adjust. But, there are two scripts on the Operations Manager CD that you can use, one for enable and one for disable ACS forwarders.
If you have a custom group, including a number of machines, for which you want to enable ACS forwarding, you can follow the steps below
In the Operations Console, navigate to the Monitoring workspace, then click the Discovered Inventory view
Click Change Target Type, in the action pane
In the Select a Target Type window, select View all target, then select Computer Group and click OK
Right-click a group and select Open and Command Shell from the context menu
Input C:\EnableForwarding.ps1 <FQDN ACS Collector> and press Enter to run the script (ex C:\EnableForwarding.ps1 ms01.contoso.local)
In the popup window, input Operations Manager administrator credentials
Input cd ..
Input get-monitoringclass –name “Microsoft.SystemCenter.ACS.Forwarder” | get-monitoringobject | ft pathname
Verify that all machines in your group is in the list of ACS forwarders
Input exit to close command shell
If you have your groups in a unsealed management pack you might need to seal that management pack first. There are guides about that here and here.
