You are going to have to clarify your question.  I am not sure what you are asking.  Are you asking about creating a custom dashboard yourself?

sorry for any confusion. Yes I want to create custom dashboard for windows servers. Previously I have seen one dashboard which depicted the status of the server with smileys. I want to replicate the same kind of dasboard and need idea if it can be achieved.

With windows server 2012 you have a good dashboard already called server manager otherwise you would have to create several sub programs that show different status and then define what is good and what is bad to give either a smiley or a sad faceServer 2012 Manager

Unfortunately creating any kind of custom dashboard from scratch is neither something that can be easily and quickly explained nor is it something you can easily or quickly create.

If you aren't really good at programming/development work and/or scripting then your best bet is likely to go with a third party monitoring tool that will provide you with a monitoring dashboard.
