How to Deploy an Operations Manager 2007 Web Console Server Using the Setup Wizard
In Operations Manager 2007, you can connect to the Web console server to view a browser-based version of the Monitoring pane of the Operations Console without installing the console. Use the following procedure to deploy the Operations Manager 2007 Web console server by using the Setup Wizard.
After you install a secondary Management Server along with Web Console, if you want to remove the Management Server but keep Web Console, first uninstall all the components. Then you can install Web Console on that system.
