PerformancePoint error: Unable to connect to Server

Are you experiencing this? You might. There are different set of connection related errors with PerformancePoint 2007. If you get errors like "Unable to connect to the specified server. Make sure the address is correct" or "The PerformancePoint could not connect to the specified data source", most probably, you will find the solution here. If you face for an error like "Unable to connect to Server" with PerformancePoint dashboard designer options, the reason might be the unavailability of AJAX 1.0. Solution is here. It has another solution but installing AJAX fixed my problem.

Skipping prerequisities when installing PerformancePoint 2007 SP2

While installing the SP2 of PerformancePoint 2007, you may get an error like; Failed package requirement analysis, please refer to the log file for more information. This can be avoided by setting the SKIPREQCHECK as true with msiexec command.

Please see the code below; Installing the product, skipping the prerequisites; msiexec /i PSCSrv.msi SKIPREQCHECK=1 Installing the service pack, skipping the prerequisities; msiexec /p PSCSrv.msi SKIPREQCHECK=1

Installing PerformancePoint 2007 SP2

If you are using PerformancePoint 2007 and you have not installed the SP2, then this is the time for installing it. As you know, it did not support natively for SQL Server 2008, and now it allows. You will be installing this SP2 under three scenarios; 1. Update PerformancePoint Server with SP2 only. No changes to SQL Server 2005. 2. Update SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 and then update PerformancePoint Server to SP2. 3. Install PerformancePoint Server RTM and SQL Server 2008 in a new environment. You need to make sure that you follow the correct steps for whatever the scenario you select. You can find the instruction for all scenarios here. You can download the SP2 from here(x86) and here(x64).
