      Basic Steps:
      Unzip the BSA_Dashboard-1.4.xx.zip file
      Run "nsh configure_dashboard.nsh -U <BLUser> -R <BLRole> -P <BLProfile> -b <BDSSA Server> -t n"
      (doesn't install tomcat: '-t n')
      Arguments:
      configure_dashboard.nsh  -U <BLUser> -R <BLRole> -P <BLProfile> -b <BDSSA Server> -t <y/n>
      -U BLUser: BladeLogic User Name
      -R BLRole: BladeLogic Role Name
      -P BLProfile: BladeLogic Login Profile Name
      -b BDSSA server: Hostname of the BDSSA Server to install the Value Dashboard Reports (optional)
      -t Install Tomcat or not (y/n) (optional, default is to install)
      -r Retention, in days, of dashboard history to keep
      -n Send email notifications y/n
      -o Email To

      -T directory to extract Tomcat install to
    3. You will be prompted to enter the password for the BladeLogic user you entered if not supplied on the command line.
    4. If you selected to install Tomcat you will be prompted for a JAVA_HOME for Tomcat (defaults to the appserver's java) and an install location for Tomcat.  The install files can be removed after install, if not supplied on the commandline
    5. Once the script finishes execution, access the dashboard via the URL printed at the end of the screen (if Tomcat was installed)

    Note: Tomcat is not required to use the Health Dashboard, but is a convenient way to view the output via a web browser.  If Tomcat is not practical for some reason, use the "-t n" option when installing, and copy the generated files (from the fileserver/dashboard/report directory) to a workstation or laptop with a web browser to review.
