In my last blog post, I showed how to create a SCOM Dashboard using Visio. https://www.scom2k7.com/creating-scom-2012-dashboards-using-visio-2010-or-visio-2013/
Now I am going to show how to add this Dashboard into SharePoint 2010.
To start I need the Microsoft Visio 2010 and SharePoint 2010 Extensions for System Center 2012 found here.
Part 1 – Installing SharePoint 2010 Integration Components
Here are the pre-requisites:
- System Center 2012 – Operations Manager console or Operations Manager 2007 R2 Authoring Console.
- SharePoint 2010 Enterprise with Visio Services enabled.
- The Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, available from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=131605
I also verify that the SharePoint 2010 Enterprise with Visio Services are enabled.
On my SharePoint server I go to the SharePoint Central Administration Page.
I click Configuration Wizards.
I click Launch Farm Configuration Wizard
I click Start the Wizard
I scroll down and verify that the Visio Graphics Service is Enabled.
It appears to be already enabled so I click Cancel.
I verify that Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed so I continue on.
Ok now I am ready.
First I need to install the Visio Services Data Provider.
I log on to my SharePoint server as the Farm Administrator so I have all the permissions I need.
Now I copy the Server folder over to my SharePoint 2010 server in the C:\temp\ directory from the Extensions I downloaded earlier.
Then I run setup.exe. Click Next, Next, Close.
On my SharePoint server, I open the SharePoint 2010 Management Shell as an Administrator
In the Command shell I change directories to
C:\Program Files\Visio Services Data Provider for System Center 2012 – Operations Manager
Now I type in
I click enter and it installs
I see that it says that is is Deployed so I am good.
I also see that another one listed called microsoft.enterprisemanagem… This is from when I installed the SCOM Dashboard Integration
https://www.scom2k7.com/how-to-view-scom-2012-dashboards-in-sharepoint-2010/ and is not required to make the Visio stuff work.
Part 2 – Configuring SharePoint 2010 Integration Components
Ok now I go back to the SharePoint Central Administration Console. I click Configure service accounts from the Security Section
From the dropdown I pick Service Application Pool – SharePoint Web Services
I need to grant the SCOM2K7\spsvc access to read SCOM. I double click on the Operations Manager Read-Only Operators and add my SharePoint service account to the Operations Manager Read-Only Operations user role.
Ok SharePoint is ready.
Part 3 – Adding your Visio Dashboard to SharePoint 2010
I get my SCOM Dashboard Visio document from my previous post. https://www.scom2k7.com/creating-scom-2012-dashboards-using-visio-2010-or-visio-2013/
I open up the diagram document in Visio 2013
I click Configure to make sure my connection is correct.
I click File, Save As. Then I click SharePoint and click Browse.
I type in the address of my SharePoint Web page in the address bar.
I choose Save as Type: Visio 2010 Web Drawing
Then I click Double Click on Shared Documents.
Now I hit Save.
I get a warning about some Compatibility issue. I just click Continue.
I now go to my SharePoint page and click Shared Documents
I click on my Visio Document and it comes up in a web console.
I click Enable (always)
OK now that is done.
Part 4 – Configuring SharePoint 2010 to show your Visio Dashboard as a web part.
I want to add my Visio Dashboard as a Web part to my Original SCOM dashboard.
I browse to the actual SharePoint site where I want to display my dashboard.
Under Site Actions I click Edit Page
I Check Out the page
I put my cursor just below Shared Documents but above my previous dashboard.
I select Business Data. Then I select Visio Web Access
Then I click Add on the middle right of the page.
I select Click here to open tool pane.
On the right hand side I pick the the … Next to Web Drawing URL
I then select Shared Documents and select my SCOM-Visio.vdw file.
I changed the Automatic Refresh Interval to 1 minute.
I also de-select Show Open in Visio
I click OK at the bottom of the screen
I am finished. I check out the finished product.
Now I just need to create some really cool looking SCOM Visio Dashboards.
