Microsoft BI Conference 2008
It's official! I'm now registered for the BI Conference 2008 in Seattle from October 6-8, 2008. I'm very excited about this event.

The likelihood of me swinging a second trip to Seattle a month later is slim to none. If there are any other GWB members that are planning to be there, let me know. It would be great to meet up ......

How to rename a server (continued)... With Proclarity
As I wrote about yesterday, I am in the process of building out virtual images with PerformancePoint. I figured out how to rename the server and have both SharePoint Services and PerformancePoint work (see yesterday's post.) Today, while working with the server, I realized that none of my Proclarity views were working. I tried several things and finally I gave up, uninstalled the Proclarity Analytics Server and re-installed it. This worked great in getting it up and running. Only took about 10 minutes. ......

How to rename a server running SharePoint and PerformancePoint
I'm in an running Virtual images for development and demos that are stand along PerformancePoint Servers. They are running Windows Server 2003, SQLServer 2005, SharePoint Services 3.0, and PerformancePoint Server. I have a development environment and a DMZ environment that can each run 5 instances of the Virtual image. To make this setup easier, we created a "gold" image that we will use as our baseline image for each of the environments. If you try to do this, what you will quickly find out is that ......
