How to Register the Data Warehouse Server in the Lab Environment

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Service Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Service Manager

Use the following procedure to register the newly installed data warehouse server with the lab Service Manager environment.

To register a data warehouse

  1. Log on to the computer that hosts the Service Manager console. Use an account that is a member of the Service Manager and data warehouse management administrators group.

  2. In the Service Manager console, click Administration.

  3. In the Administration pane, expand Administration.

  4. In the Administration view, in the Register with Service Manager’s Data Warehouse area, click Register with Service Manager Data Warehouse.

  5. In the Data Warehouse Registration wizard, on the Before You Begin page, click Next.

  6. On the Data Warehouse page, in the Server name box, type the fully qualified domain name of the computer hosting the data warehouse management server, and then click Test Connection. If the test is successful, click Next.

  7. On the Credentials page, you can accept the default entry in the Run as account list, and then click Next, or you can enter credentials from a user or group of your own choosing.

    ImportantImportant
    The account you specify will be assigned administrative credentials on the Service Manager management server and granted Read permission on the Service Manager database. You can specify different credentials from other Service Manager management groups when registering with the data warehouse.

  8. On the Summary page, click Create.

  9. On the Completion page, when The data warehouse registration succeeded is displayed, click Close.

  10. A dialog box states that the report deployment process has not finished. This is to be expected. On the System Center Service Manager dialog box, click OK.

  11. In a few minutes, after closing the Data Warehouse Registration wizard, the Data Warehouse button will be added to the Service Manager console. In the Service Manager console, click the arrow at the lower right corner of the Service Manager console buttons, and then click Show More Buttons.

You can use a Windows PowerShell command to complete this task. For information about how to use Windows PowerShell to register Service Manager management groups with the data warehouse, see Add-SCDWMgmtGroup (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=203096).

To validate the data warehouse registration process

  1. On the computer hosting the data warehouse management server, on the Windows desktop, click Start, point to Programs, point to Windows PowerShell 1.0, right-click Windows PowerShell, and then click Run as administrator.

  2. At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type the following commands, and then press ENTER:

    Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
    Import-Module .\Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.Warehouse.Cmdlets.psd1
    
    
  3. Type the following command, and then press ENTER.

    Get-SCDWMgmtGroup
    
    
  4. If registration was successful, a table with two rows of data is displayed. One row displays data for the data warehouse management group, and a second row displays data for the Service Manager management group. If registration fails, only the data for the data warehouse management group is displayed.

Determine when the deployment is complete

Because you need to allow enough time for the management pack deployment process to be completed, you will have to determine when that process is complete. You can use the following procedure in System Center Service Manager 2010 to determine when the process is complete.

To determine when management pack deployment has completed

  1. Start the Service Manager console.

  2. In the Service Manager console, click Data Warehouse.

  3. In the Data Warehouse pane, expand Data Warehouse, and then click Data Warehouse Jobs.

  4. In the Data Warehouse Jobs pane, click MPSyncJob.

  5. In the Tasks pane, under Synchronization, click Details.

  6. In the MP Sync Job dialog box, scroll to the right and examine the Status column.

    noteNote
    In the MP Sync Job dialog box, click Status to alphabetically sort the status column.

  7. Scroll through the Status list. The management pack deployment process is complete when Associated or Imported is listed in the status column for all of the management packs. Make sure that there is no status of either Pending Association or Failed in the status list. In the Data Warehouse Jobs pane, the status of the MPSyncJob will have changed from Running to Not Started. This deployment process can take up to two hours to complete.

  8. To refresh the MP Sync Job dialog box:

    1. Press OK to close the dialog box.

    2. In the Tasks pane, in the Data Warehouse Jobs area, click Refresh.

    3. In the Data Warehouse Jobs pane, click MPSyncJobs.

    4. In the Tasks pane, under Synchronization, click Details.

  9. After the management packs have been deployed (as determined in step 7), make sure that the following 5 data warehouse jobs are displayed in the Data Warehouse Jobs pane:

    • Extract_<Service Manager management group name>

    • Extract_<data warehouse management group name>

    • Load.Common

    • Transform.Common

    • MPSyncJob

  10. If these 5 data warehouse jobs are not displayed, perform the following procedure:

    1. In the Data Warehouse Jobs pane, click MPSyncJob.

    2. In the Tasks pane, under Synchronization, click Resume.

    3. Assess if management pack deployment has completed by returning to step 4 above.
