Where to Install
The purpose of this service is to send notifications to AWS servers which in turn will send a notification to your phone. The notifications are based on what dashboards the end user has subscribed. Because of this as long as the requirements above are met, this can be installed just about anywhere. Typically it is either installed on a Mgmt server or on a server in the DMZ.
1. First step is to log onto the Live Maps Portal as a SCOM administrator. From the Portal, navigate to the Menu > Administration > Downloads.
2. From the List, find the “Live Maps Mobile Device Notification Service x64 msi”. Click on it to download the MSI. NOTE: If you require an x86 installer, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This will download a file named “Savision.LiveMaps2012.MobileDeviceNotifications.x64.msi.
3. Navigate to the folder where the MSI was downloaded. Right click on the file and select Install. If you receive the standard windows security warning, click on Run.
4. On the Welcome screen, click Next.
5. Click on “I Agree”, then click Next.
6. Choose the folder path you wish to install it in, then click Next.
7. Click Next, to confirm installation.
8. A dialog box will pop up requesting System Center Operations Manager Credentials. This must be a SCOM admin. Click OK once information has been entered.
- Server – Mgmt group server you want the service to communicate with.
- User name – SCOM admin user name
- Password – SCOM admin password
- Domain – Domain
9. At this point, the service will attempt to communicate with the Operations Manager server using the credentials provided. If there is a problem it will notify you. If everything is good, then your next prompt will be to click Close to finish the installation.
Accessing Live Maps Mobile Device Notification Service
This is a service that will simply run on the server. It will send out notifications to an AWS server. Device Notifications will occur after a mobile phone has been registered via the app.
If for some reason you need to change the settings (i.e. credentials or mgmt server it connects to), then you can launch the Mobile Device Notifier Configuration utility. This will bring up a similar dialog box to change the settings.
