Configure the Operations Manager Data Source in Visio
Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 R2
Before Visio can interact with Operations Manager 2007, you need to configure Operations Manager as a data source for your Visio document. You also need to configure the Operations Manager Web console address to enable opening the Health Explorer or Alert view directly from Visio. You need to configure these items for each Visio document you create.
To configure the Operations Manager data source and Web console address in Visio
Open a new drawing in Visio.
For Visio 2007: On the toolbar, click Operations Manager, and then click Configure Data Source.
For Visio 2010: click Operations Manager in the ribbon, and then click Configure.
In the Name field, type the name of the root management server (RMS).
In the Address field, type the address for the Web console. This is the console that is used to launch the Health Explorer and Alert view from Visio.
If you do not know the address, and you have Operations Manager administrator privileges, click Look up web console address. If you do not know the address, and you are not an Operations Manager administrator, contact the administrator for the address, and then type it in the Address field.
If you want to receive regular updates of state information from the RMS, select Automatically refresh data, and then specify a refresh interval in seconds.
