Download the Service Level Dashboard 2.0 from the following URL:
Export the contents of the ZIP file to a folder on your SCOM management server
Import the Management pack highlighted below into SCOM
From the Management Server that is hosting the WSS 3.0 and SCOM dashboard websites, run the installer highlighted below with administrator rights.
Copy the URL from the URL field below so we can use this to quickly logon to the SLD for the first time
Open Internet Explorer and browse to the URL for the SLD that was noted during the install - typically something like: http://managementservername:51918
Select 'People and Groups'
Now click on 'Add Users' to add new users to your group
Add the users or groups and select 'Full Control', then click 'OK'
From the SLD Home page, click on the options below to add previously created service level objects for your distributed applications into the SLD
Click on the available Service Levels from the list and then select 'Apply Filter'
When you go back to your home page, you should see something like the screen below
This completes the installation of your Service Level Dashboard 2.0. In Part 6 of this series, I will demonstrate how to add SQL queries to your SCOM dashboard and create web parts with them.
