To configure IT Analytics Solution
Symantec recommends that you type the host name of the server on which Analysis Services reside. Using
localhostas a host name restricts the access from the Symantec Management Console to the computer where Analysis Services resides.
For a new standard configuration, in the Create New Database box, accept the default to create a new Analysis Server Database with the IT Analytics name. If you select an existing database, note that the existing data sources are overwritten with the current Symantec Management Platform database settings.
If you did not install SQL Server as the default instance, specify the virtual directory in the following format:
http://servername/ReportServer$InstanceName/for SQL Server 2005 or
http://servername/ReportServer_InstanceName/for SQL Server 2008.
Symantec recommends that you type the host name of the server on which Reporting Services reside. Using
localhostas a host name restricts the access from the Symantec Management Console to the computer where Reporting Services resides.
It explicitly defines the user credentials. It also automatically manages authentication across all application tiers because access to Reporting Services is always authenticated with the same rights for all users. However, Stored Credentials limits the granular control that you have over the information within the reports to which users have access.
Lets the user's Windows credentials pass through to the Reporting Server. This method is recommended for restricting access to Reporting Services on a per-user basis. Windows Integrated Authentication allows a more granular control over the information in the reports to which you grant users access. However, additional configuration might be necessary to ensure that authentication is appropriately managed across all application tiers.
