Configuring the System Center Operations Manager Connections

A connection establishes a reusable link between Orchestrator and an Operations Manager server.

  2. On the Connections tab, click Add to begin the connection setup. The Connection Entry dialog box appears.

  3. In the Name box, type the name or IP address of the server running System Center Operations Manager.

  4. In the Domain box, type the domain name of the Operations Manager server, or click the ellipsis button (…) to browse for the domain, select it, and then click Add.

  5. In the User name and Password boxes, type the credentials that the Orchestrator server will use to connect to the Operations Manager server.

  6. Click Test Connection. When the message "Successfully connected" appears, click OK.
