Use the following procedure to install a new data warehouse server in the lab environment.
To install a data warehouse management server and data warehouse databases
Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrative rights.
On the Service Manager installation media, double-click the Setup.exe file.
On the Microsoft System Center Service Manager 2010 page, click Install a Service Manager data warehouse management server.
On the Product registration page, type information in the boxes. In the Product key boxes, type the product key you received with Service Manager, or alternatively, select Install as an evaluation edition (180 day trial)?. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and, if applicable, click I have read, understood, and agree with the terms of the license agreement, and then click Next.
On the Installation location page, verify that sufficient free disk space is available, and then click Next. If necessary, click Browse to change the location in which the Service Manager data warehouse management server will be installed.
On the System check results page, make sure that prerequisites passed or at least passed with warnings, and then click Next.
On the Configure data warehouse databases page, Service Manager checks the computer you are using to see if it can host the data warehouse databases. For this configuration, confirm that the database server is the computer on which you are installing the data warehouse management server, and then click Next.
A warning message appears if you are using the default collation (SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS). Support for multiple languages in Service Manager is not possible when you are using the default collation. If later you decide to support multiple languages using a different collation, you have to re-install SQL Server. See “Microsoft SQL Server 2008 with SP1” in the System Center Service Manager 2010 SP1 Planning Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=207215).
On the Configure the data warehouse management group page, follow these steps:
In the Management group name box, type a unique name for the group.
Management group names must be unique. Do not use the same management group name when you deploy a Service Manager management server and a Service Manager data warehouse management server. Furthermore, do not use the management group name that is used for Operations Manager.
Click Browse, enter the user account or group to which you want to give Service Manager administrative rights, and then click Next.
Service Manager will use the existing computer if SQL Server Reporting Services is present. On the Configure the reporting server for the data warehouse page, accept the defaults, and then click Next.
On the Configure the account for Service Manager services page, click Domain account, specify the user name, password, and domain for the account, and then click Test Credentials. After you receive a The credentials were accepted message, click Next.
