PerformancePoint Server 2007

Updated: 2009-10-15

Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 with Service Pack 3 (SP3) can be installed on the Windows Server 2008 operating system for use with Microsoft SQL Server 2008. Before installing either Planning Server or Monitoring Server, you must configure Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0 correctly.

Use the following sequence to install PerformancePoint Server on Windows Server 2008 for use with SQL Server 2008. Note that before you can use either Planning Server or Monitoring Server you must run Configuration Manager on the Windows Server 2008 computer.

  1. Install Windows Server 2008

    • Install the IIS 6 Management Compatibility role

    • Enable ISAPI and CGI restrictions using either the Windows Server 2008 Server Manager or IIS 7.0 management console

  2. Install SQL Server 2008

  3. Install either PerformancePoint Monitoring Server or Planning Server on Windows Server 2008 in a stand-alone environment or a distributed environment.

    ImportantImportant:

    A stand-alone installation should only be used for testing, development, and proof of concept for both Planning Server and Monitoring Server. Microsoft does not support a stand-alone environment for PerformancePoint Server in a production environment.

See Install Planning Server on a stand-alone computer and Install Monitoring Server on a single computer for details about installing PerformancePoint Server in a stand-alone environment. See Install Monitoring Server in a distributed environment and Install Planning Server in a distributed environment for details about installing PerformancePoint Server in a distributed environment.
