Performance Point 2007 Installation, Part 2: Installing Monitoring Server : Page 4

Follow this detailed walkthrough and—despite the lengthy list of prerequisites—you'll find that installing Performance Point Monitoring Server is a fairly straightforward process.

Monitoring Server Configuration: Post Prerequisites
Once again, I'll run the Monitoring Server Configuration Manager to check the prerequisites. This time, the show that I can proceed (see Figure 26). I click Next.

Figure 26. Monitoring Server Configuration: The checkmarks show that all prerequisites have been met.
Figure 27. Monitoring Server Configuration: You can choose which items the Monitoring Server Configuration should install.

The next screen shows several installation options (see Figure 27). I elect to install all the options, leave the Distributed configuration option checked, and click on Next.

On the Database screen (see Figure 28), I enter the name of my SQL Server (abcsql01), accept the default database name (PPSMonitoring), leave the "Create Monitoring System Database" option selected, and click Next.

Figure 28. Monitoring Server Configuration: Enter the name of your SQL Server on this screen.
Figure 29. Monitoring Server Configuration: You can require SSL for connections to the monitoring web site on this screen, but I elected not to.

On the Web Site screen (see Figure 29) I uncheck "Require SSL connections to Monitoring Web site" as I'm not worried about that level of security in the test environment. I accept the default TCP port (40000), the default "All Unassigned" setting for the IP address, and click Next.

Author's Note: It's probably a good idea to check IIS to make sure this port isn't being used.

The next screen (see Figure 30), asks you to provide a domain, user name and password for the Application Pool Identity. I created an Active Directory user account named SQLMonitor for this purpose, so I enter that information and click Next.

Figure 30. Monitoring Server Configuration: Enter the information required for the Application Pool identity.
Figure 31. Monitoring Server Configuration: From the Web Parts screen, choose a SharePoint site collection for the Dashboard Viewer.

Figure 31 shows the next screen, Web Parts, which lets you select the SharePoint site collection to use for the Dashboard Viewer. In my case, this is an existing SharePoint front-end server that already has a site collection. I select it, and click Next.

On the SQL Server Reporting Services page (see Figure 32), I leave the SQL Server Reporting Services instance as the default, and click Next.

Figure 32. Monitoring Server Configuration: Here's the SQL Server Reporting Services Screen.
Figure 33. Monitoring Server Configuration: The Validation screen shows that everything's ready to go.

The validation page (Figure 33) shows that everything looks ready to go, so I click Next.

The next Review screen (see Figure 34) summarizes what I'll be installing, so I click Configure.

Figure 34. Monitoring Server Configuration: The Review screen presents a summary of the install tasks.
Figure 35. Monitoring Server Configuration: The Summary screen appears when the configuration process completes.

When the configuration completes, it brings up a Summary screen telling me that the configuration completed successfully, as shown in Figure 35. I click Close to close the configuration manager.
