Before deploying Monitoring Server you must install Message Queuing (also known as MSMQ), with Active Directory Domain Services Integration enabled, on the server running Monitoring Server and each Front End Server from which a Monitoring Server will collect data. Monitoring Server uses Message Queuing to ensure reliability when processing data.

To install Message Queuing by using Server Manager
  1. Log on to the server that will be running Monitoring Server or the Front End Server using a user account with local administrator rights and Domain User permissions on the domain.

  2. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.

  3. Click Add Features.

  4. Expand Message Queuing, expand Message Queuing Services, and verify that the Message Queuing Server and Directory Service Integration check boxes are selected.

  5. Click Next, and then click Install.

  6. If you are prompted to restart the computer, click OK to complete the installation.
