2.0 Dashboard Installation

The Dashboard is a separate product with its own installation CD or media download, and is not installed as part of the Operations Center server. For more information about installing Operations Center, see the Operations Center 5.6 Server Installation Guide.

The Dashboard is a Web-based application that requires access to the Operations Center server. While it can be installed on the same server as Operations Center, it doesn’t need to be on the same host machine.

For hardware and deployment requirements, see Supported Versions and Hardware Requirements in the Operations Center 5.6 Getting Started Guide.

During installation, various configuration values must be set for the Dashboard. After installation, you must start the Dashboard service. After the installation is verified, deploy additional portlets or make property changes to portlets.
