To configure IT Analytics Solution

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click Notification Server > IT Analytics Settings.

  2. In the left pane, click Configuration.

  4. Under Analysis Server, enter the host name of the Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services.

    If you did not install SQL Server as the default instance, specify the following format: servername\instancename.
